11.1. Risk Management Policy. The Corporation has comprehensive and detailed Risk Management documentation, processes and procedures in place to help ensure the safety of the membership's youth players. This is accomplished through thorough background checks of all adults including Coaches, Assistant Coaches, Manager's, and etc. that come in contact with the youth players.
In addition, every possible measure is taken to protect the privacy of any individual that is subjected to the Risk Management approval process. All Risk Management documentation and files are retained in secure cabinets and computers within the confines of the NYSWYSA State Office under the supervision of the NYSWYSA State Office Operations Manager.
Recognizing the importance of its membership understanding the various aspects of Risk Management, the Corporation offers free educational presentations to any affiliated organizations.
