Ensuring player safety has always been a large part of the mission for the promotion of youth soccer in the United States. Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer has been on the forefront for reviewing and promoting player safety and established the Medical Advisory Committee several years ago for this purpose.

This year, the Medical Advisory Committee is enhancing its resources and recommendations to all of the clubs, coaches, players and parents throughout Eastern Pennsylvania with Player Performance in mind.

How To Use Player Performance Resources

It is the recommendation of Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer and the Medical Advisory Committee that each club identify a Club Safety Officer. The Club Safety Officer will be a volunteer position, whose major responsibility of this individual is to ensure the adherence to both mandatory and recommended policies of Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer, U.S. Soccer and US Youth Soccer as it relates to player safety.
