At SV North the safety of our players is our top priority. We are committed to providing a safe environment where all our children can enjoy the game of soccer.  

Mandatory Reporter Policy

Federal Law MANDATES all members participating in youth sports organizations will be considered mandatory reporters. This means that all SV North volunteers including Board Members, Coaches, Assistant Coaches and any other volunteers that interact with children are considered mandatory reporters.

Any mandatory reporter who witnesses or suspects child abuse or witnesses other questionable behaviors that violate the United States Soccer, Safe Sport Policies is obligated to report any suspected abuse to the appropriate authorities. If any mandatory reporter or club member has questions about these obligations they are to follow the SV North Mandatory Reporting Policy and the USSF Safe Soccer Framework.
