NYSA utilizes SportsConnect for all registration and RMA tracking. One of the features of this system is that it automatically syncs with the WYS RMA system so that a volunteer can renew their RMA through the NYSA website and the NYSA admin team will be able to quickly see when a volunteer’s RMA has been approved. The process to renew an RMA through the NYSA website is outlined below. If a volunteer has already completed their RMA without first going to the NYSA website, there are steps to get you linked up with the NYSA. Please review the instructions at the end of this document.
There are two required courses for RMA completion and both can be found in the U.S. Soccer Learning Center or you can access them by following the step below. The two courses are “INTRODUCTION TO SAFE AND HEALTHY PLAYING ENVIRONMENTS” and “SAFESPORT”.
If a volunteer is on multiple teams (ie. Head Coach of two teams, manager of two teams, Asst Coach and Manager of two different teams), then just pick ONE team to do the RMA for, not for every volunteer role you hold.PDF Instructions: HERE
