Abuse Prevention Systems
Abuse Prevention Systems was created by legal professionals who are sexual abuse experts. After decades of litigating sexual abuse cases, Gregory Love and Kimberlee Norris founded Abuse Prevention Systems to help organizations to reduce the risk of sexual abuse by creating preventative measures tailored to fit the needs of youth programs. With over 40 years combined experience in sexual abuse litigation, consultation and crisis management, Love & Norris understand the risk of sexual abuse and how it unfolds in children’s programming.
Abuse Prevention Systems provides the most sophisticated and comprehensive sexual abuse prevention training available in the field today, offering comprehensive risk management programs which incorporate current research on child sexual abuse prevention practices.

Risk Management

Print Email
To promote the welfare of youth players LSA has adopted the US Youth Soccer KidSafe program. KidSafe is designed to identify all  persons that may have contact with our youth players and to identify individuals who have been convicted of crimes of violence or crimes against persons and to exclude them from participation in any LSA-sanctioned event. LSA Policy 105 outlines our Risk Management Policy in detail.
Each LSA member organization must appoint a Risk Management Director (RMD). The RMD is responsible for insuring that every club officer, coach, assistant coach, manager, referee, assistant referee, trainer and any volunteer who have regular contact with any players complete the LSA online risk management disclosure questionnaire every year. The LSA online risk management process is accomplished through GotSoccer, our registration platform provider.

In addition to facilitating criminal background checks on those individuals who wish to work with and around our young players, each organization's RMD shall develop and maintain relevant Risk Management Policy for his/her organization and communicate risk management information to their members as appropriate. Risk management policies may include, but are not limited to, the required background checks; severe weather safety guidelines; first aid guidelines; facilities (including goals and fields); proper use of social media and electronic communications; and tournament/travel.

LSA takes the safety and well-being of each of our players extremely seriously and calls upon our membership for cooperation, diligence and understanding in our efforts to keep our kids safe.
