Soccer Coaches

All Coaches Must Have a Current KidSAFE and Concussion Certificate on File

HERE to visit The Ohio South Youth Soccer Association website to complete the KIDSAFE (background check) and Concussion Certificate (chose one video to watch).

Volunteer coaches that are assigned a team will receive one registration refund upon return of the issued equipment at the end of the season.

Also, regarding the new State of Ohio Return to Play Law, Coaches, Referees and volunteers for Pataskala’s Recreation Soccer Program must complete appropriate safety training and review guidelines as set forth. All information regarding both the these requirements can be found at

Coach Requirements: All coaches who register will be required to upload a valid, current concussion training certificate, submit a background check and take SafeSport training. This can all be done at time of registration. I have attached the SafeSport training instructions, which you are free to distribute to your coaches, admins, etc. Rec coaches are NOT required to upload a photo. They may move past this step. They do not need to be assigned to teams in the system unless you choose to do that.
