Report Abuse

Mandatory Reporting

All Adult Participants of NJYS are mandatory reporters of any known or suspected child abuse.  All reports must be made to the appropriate law enforcement authorities within 24 hours.  The abuse does not need to be confirmed.  Adult Participants should never seek to conduct their own investigations. 

NJYS does not tolerate retaliation of any kind. Any Adult Participant or Minor Athlete who makes a good faith report will not be subject to retaliation, including harassment, as a result of making a report.  The SafeSport Act also includes qualified immunity for good faith reports.  The obligation to report is not always satisfied by making an initial report and an Adult Participant is required to report supplemental information of which he/she becomes aware that may be relevant in a pending investigation.

The person receiving the disclosure of abuse, neglect or mistreatment is required to make a report to using the following guidelines:

  • Local Law Enforcement Number
  • Division of Child Protection & Permanency (formerly Division of Youth & Family Services): Report if suspicious activity is applicable, 1-877-NJ-ABUSE may be on club website and given to athletes and parents

AFTER receiving guidance and direction from law enforcement and/or the Division of Child Protection & Permanency, please also make a report online to NJYS. This will assist NJYS in taking any appropriate action. 

NJYS is required to have a mechanism for all individuals (adults and minors) to report abuse (not just abuse in sexual nature as abuse can be defined as any of the prohibited behaviors outlined under Prohibited Conduct in the NJYS Safe Soccer Policy), all are encouraged to report abuse through NJYS digital compliance platform below.
