All coaches are required to complete the online Safesport course to be added to the team roster.
Online awareness/prevention training is available at no cost to OSYSA Members and consists of three (3) training modules which include:
- Sexual Misconduct Awareness Education
- Mandatory Reporting
- Emotional and Physical Misconduct
Safesport is a course that needs completed yearly. The initial course is 2-3 hours. You can stop and start as needed. If you previously completed the full course you will only need to take a 30 minute refresher course each year.
In order to protect young athletes, the State of Ohio passed a concussion law, commonly called the "Return to Play" law. This law, similar to laws enacted in most other states, imposes training, safety, and awareness requirements on youth sports organizations, like OSYSA, and its leagues, tournaments, coaches, referees, officials, and athletes and their families.
Each coach must receive concussion training prior to April 26, 2013, and that training must be renewed every three years. (See O.R.C. 3707.511 (C)(1).)
Coaches may choose training from either the Center for Disease Control (CDC) or the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS). Both programs are free of charge. The NFHS requires a user to login but allows leagues to track coaches progress and allows coaches to log in and print their certification should they require a new certificate.
