The Sumter County

1998 to bring soccer to the youth of
We are affiliated with the American Youth Soccer Organization (AYSO), which is a nationwide non-profit organization that develops and delivers quality youth soccer programs in a fun, family environment based on AYSO’s Five Philosophies:
Volunteers are the lifeblood of AYSO. To ensure the safety of both children and volunteers, each volunteer is required to take a short in-person or online training session called Safe Haven™. It focuses on safety and appropriate behavior with children as well as first aid and other on-field issues. Agreeing to a background check is also required for each volunteer.
Becoming Safe Haven™ certified may take a little time, but AYSO families know their children's safety is worth it.
Safe Haven™ is both a child and volunteer protection program. It was the first of its kind in youth sports.
The child protection aspect is intended to prevent child abuse, promote education and awareness, enforce policies and screen and train volunteers. It includes proactive steps that promote a positive, healthy environment for children.
Volunteer protection comes into play as a result of volunteer training, certification and continuing education. The Volunteer Protection Act of 1997 provides certain legal protections for volunteers who have been trained and certified and act in accordance with a written job description. Safe Haven includes these three elements, giving volunteers the highest degree of protection available under the law.
