Colorado Rapids Youth Soccer Club paid coaches are required and our volunteer coaches are requested to stay at the field until the last player is picked up. This policy applies to players from age 4 through age 18, and is designed to ensure your child’s safety. Additionally, all coaches are requested to have a “two deep” player policy, meaning, coaches should never find themselves in a position being alone with a child. As a result, it is important that parents and guardians drop off and pick up their players from practice on time.
While we understand that many parents have hectic schedules and getting to and from practices can present challenges, it is important to note that we rely on many volunteer and professional coaches who similarly have demanding schedules and often need to leave immediately following your child’s practice. Should a coach need to leave the field area while children are still present, children may only be left with an adult (this includes parents) that has completed a volunteer disclosure form and submitted the form to the Colorado Rapids Youth Soccer Club office. You can find our Volunteer Disclosure form on our website.
