CURRENT USERS – For those who HAVE completed safesport before, click on ACCESS SAFESPORT and log in your account. Do next available refresher course. If you already did Refresher 3, then you will be starting over again at the initial course as required by Safesport. This is why you are asked to only complete the next refresher you have not done, not all of them. See note for any technical difficulties at end of instructions.
*NEW USERS – For those who have not completed safesport before, click on START COURSE – you will need to create your account.
Use the same email you use in gotsport, please, and your LEGAL first and last name (or however it is listed in Gotsport). Complete information on “Sign Up” page. Your name must match what you have in Gotsport or the accounts won’t link. You shouldn’t need a key or access code. Contact the MYSA's registrar (Katja Andrew) if your requirements don’t link to Gotsport.
If prompted, log in to the new account you just created.
Click on “Menu” and select “Catalog.”
Click the Start button for “SafeSport Trained – U.S. Soccer Federation” to complete the course. You only need to do the initial course, not the refreshers, if this is your first time doing safesport. It is in your best interest to not do all the refreshers so you have them available for following years.
*Note: As Safesport comes out with new refreshers, they may make some longer than the previous ones*
