US Club Soccer has zero tolerance for abuse or misconduct. US Club Soccer is committed to providing a safe environment and preventing abusive conduct in any form.
For the purposes of the policies set forth in Section 13 and Appendices A and B (collectively, “Participant Safety/Risk Management Policies”), as well as elsewhere in the Policy Manual, the following terms have been adopted:
Without limitation, individuals in the following roles are considered Adult Participants:
All Participants are responsible for knowing and complying with all US Club Soccer Bylaws, Policies and Rules (including those guidelines and directives on the US Club Soccer website) in addition to all applicable federal and state laws, rules and regulations and any applicable Member Organization policies and rules.
