MYSA-AJAX Player Safety

MYSA-Ajax is dedicated to providing a safe & fun environment. We consider both aspects to be fundamental in our approach to helping kids love the game of soccer. Nothing is more important that the safety of our players.


Player Safety Precautions:

  • All our coaches complete the livescan fingerprint process which entails a complete background check
  • All coaches are approved by the Modesto Youth Soccer Association Board of Directors
  • Coach training & education program to ensure safety policies are upheld
  • Our coaches are never to put themselves in a situation where they are alone (driving, training, or otherwise) with an individual player


If you ever feel there is reason for concern about player safety, immediately contact us at [email protected]. No issue is too small to discuss and all discussion will be kept in the utmost confidentiality.
