Last summer, Northeast-based club NEFC used an AED to save a player’s life. “The AED machine was one basic bit of equipment that we really needed,” NEFC coach Tim Hallett said. “Literally, once we got this whole Players First thing (NEFC was awarded Players First licensing in May 2019), it was put in three weeks before it [the player’s cardiac arrest] happened.”
As part of its Players First initiative and commitment to Player Health & Safety, US Club Soccer urges members to have an accessible AED. During a recent Facebook Live about club risk management policies, Player’s Health founder Tyrre Burks included this question in every club’s checklist: “Does your club have an AED within three minutes walking of every playing surface you have?”
A National Association member of the U.S. Soccer Federation, US Club Soccer fosters the growth and development of soccer clubs in order to create the best possible environment for players of all ages.
Anchored by Players First and its five pillars of Club Development, Coaching Development, Player Development, Parent Engagement & Education and Player Health & Safety, US Club Soccer offers registration, league- and cup-based competition platforms, player identification and a variety of other programming, resources and services.
