FC Missoula is committed to providing a safe environment for its participants to learn, develop, and have fun playing the game of soccer. We participate in and follow the Montana Safe Soccer platform, which provides all Montana Youth Soccer participants (players, coaches, referees, administrators, volunteers, and parents) with the tools to make their soccer experience safe, healthy, and free from emotional, physical, or sexual abuse.
The Montana Safe Soccer platform includes policies, procedures, background screening of all adults, education and training, reporting, monitoring, and enforcement in our desire to help all participants, young and old, have the very best soccer experience.
Please review the full Montana Youth Soccer Athlete and Participant Safety Policy for more information.
