All team staff and board members are required to undergo background checks every two years and complete Safe Sport training every year. Information on how to complete the background check will be sent out at the beginning of the season.

Concussion training is not required but if  you would like to take it, it can be accessed here: https://www.train.org/cdctrain/course/1089818/

The required Safe Sport training can be accessed using the following instructions.

1. Go to: SAFESPORT TRAINING LINK
2.  Applicants will need to complete the information on "Sign Up" page. Existing accounts may need to have their passwords reset as detailed in the following information:
As of 12/10/21: The US Center for SafeSport transitioned out of the platform that was being used, and into a new one. This new platform can be found on Safesporttrained.org

HELPFUL HINTS
- Make sure Team Officials use the same name and email address as their SportsConnect (formerly Affinity) profile. This is how the SafeSport training certificate will automatically upload to their Sports Connect profile. Manually uploading certificates should not be necessary. (Note - this has not been GUSA's experience so make sure to save a copy of your certificate and email it to [email protected])
- The training will take at least 90 minutes to complete. Applicants can start it and come back to it later.
- For technical issues with a SafeSport account, contact their Help Desk at 720-676-6417 or complete the online help form at https://safesport.org/contact
- FAQ can be found here: https://safesport.org/help/index

- A year after that, they will complete Refresher 2
- Refresher 3 for the third year will be available at the beginning of September
