Coach Training Requirements

Coach Training Requirements

As a volunteer/coach/manager, we need your assistance in creating a safe environment for all those involved.

You will need to complete Safe Sport and Intro to Safety (concussion and sudden cardiac arrest) training before you are able to receive your RMA (Risk Management Application). This will allow MIFC to roster you to the team and be on the field with your team.

There is no cost to you. The training process will take some time, but you can start and stop as needed and pick up where you left off.

MIFC Safety Training Courses Instructions:

Here are the steps to complete the safety training courses (needs to be completed annually).

What trainings do you need & how to complete them before submitting for the Back Ground Check (RMA):


The trainings that need to be completed are:

1) SafeSport
Intro to Safety

You do not need to complete the Concussion nor the Sudden Cardiac Awareness training any longer; they have been combined to form “Intro to Safety”.


Register as a volunteer:

  • Go to your MIFC Member Account
  • Find Volunteer Roles
  • Choose Select or XL Team; click on view divisions.
  • Click on team, then click view selected opportunities
  • Select assistant coach, head coach or manager

Click through all the screens until you are back on your account.

Once you are registered as a volunteer:

  • Go to your MIFC Member Account
  • Click “volunteer” on the left hand side of your homepage
  • You will see a box that shows the training with either a check mark (completed) or an orange triangle (needs to be completed) on the left side. 
  • Click the box next to SafeSport, then click “Renew & Update”. This will redirect you to the US Soccer Learning Center. 

If you do not have an US Soccer Learning Center account, you will first need to create an account and verify your email before you can log in. Make sure you use the same email address you used to create your MIFC account!

Once you Log into your account on US Soccer Learning Center:

  • Hover over “Courses”
  • Click “Available Courses”
  • Click “Supplemental Courses”

You will then see:

1) SafeSport - Click and complete the training

2) Intro to Safety - Click and complete the training

You will not need to upload your completed certificates as they will auto load for you.

Last Step!

Once you have completed your SafeSport and Intro to Safety you can now (it may take up to 24 hours for your training status to be verified):

  • Return to your MIFC member account “Volunteer” page
  • Click the “Risk Status” box
  • Click “Renew & Update” - Complete the form. (This is your Background Check.)
  • Click “Submit”
