COACH RISK MANAGEMENT/BACKGROUND CHECKS: NJ Youth Soccer requires background checks for Recreation Coaches, and registration is available using the Stack Sports platform through US Soccer Connect. Ensuring the highest level of player safety is one of the guiding principles of NJ Youth Soccer. We are committed to protecting the health, safety and security of all players, parents and coaches, and background screening is one of the most important ways we do this.
