Gallatin Soccer Club cast policy

Posted on 18th January 2014 in Uncategorized

Tennessee State Soccer recommends that each recreational club adopts the cast policy: NO CASTS/NO SPLINTS. Players needing casts/splints because of an injury may not play in a game. They also need to bring a doctor’s note to their division director releasing the player for participation in recreational soccer once the cast/splint is removed.

BACKGROUND/RISK MANAGEMENT LINK

ALL COACHES/ASSISTANT COACHES MUST COMPLETE BACKGROUND CHECK FOR THIS COMING SEASON!

http://tn-bgc.sportsaffinity.com/reg/index.asp?sessionguid You will need a user name and password. If you registered your child on-line it will be the same one you set up then. Our club in the drop down menu is “Gallatin Area Soccer Club.” Your DOB may be wrong, so make sure you change it when filling in your form.If you have problems call the 800 number.

All head and assistant coaches must go to this web site and complete a back ground check before the coach’s meetings on August 22nd. You will receive an email confirming you’ve completed the application for a background check. Please print this and bring to coach’s meeting. Let your director know when you have completed this so we can print your completion report.
