The New Mexico Youth Soccer Association fully subscribes to the US Youth Soccer KidSafe initiatives, the USYS Code of Conduct, USSF Recognize to Recover and has established a statewide risk management program. As part of that program, all coaches and program administrators must submit to a sensitive criminal history background check. For detailed information on the NMYSA Risk Management Program, you can view the NMYSA Risk Management Program in it's entirety. To complete the electronic background check disclosure, coaches must register with their League/Club. For Coach registration information, please see below:
