Clearances and Education/Licensure

The SPSA is always in need of coaches, assistant coaches and volunteers.  Coaching children in youth sports is very rewarding.   

 

There are a few steps required to become a coach in the SPSA.

Volunteers must provide the following:

 

  -A State Police Criminal Record Check
  -A PA Child Abuse History Clearance
  -if PA resident for at least the past 10 years…a complete and notarized Volunteer affidavit
  -if PA resident for less than the past 10 years…FBI Criminal Background Check

These clearances are mandated by the Legislature for any volunteer working with children in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.


These clearances need to be updated every three years.  Please see the link section below to access the appropriate entities to obtain your clearances. 

Second, all of our coaches are required to have a minimum of a National F License. The fee for this class will be reimbursed by the SPSA. This course is conducted online and takes approximately two hours to complete.  Please follow the National F Link to obtain the license.  The focus of this course is to share U.S. Soccer’s best practices in creating a fun, activity-centered and age-appropriate soccer environment. 

Please note that it is the responsibility of the volunteer coach to submit their obtained clearances and coaching license to the PA West Portal.  Click on the PA West Portal Link to submit these documents.

Once your risk management status has been approved by PA West you can begin working with the children.

Please visit our governing body, PA WEST, for additional information on how to become a volunteer soccer coach with the SPSA.
