PLAYER’S HEALTH EMBRACES NEW CLIENT IN ILLINOIS YOUTH SOCCER ASSOCIATION June 17, 2020Leave a comment
MINNEAPOLIS, June 17, 2020 – Player’s Health is excited to announce a new partnership with Illinois Youth Soccer Association (IYSA), a leading risk management services firm specializing in youth sports organizations. IYSA will be utilizing the PH Protect application for abuse reporting and prevention training, as well as an application for managing background screenings. These two applications, when combined, create a real-time dashboard for sports administrators to have a simple look at their organization’s safety status.

PH Protect is a dashboard for organizations to manage real-time incident reports and ensure their abuse reporting, incident protocols and policies are being followed. Athletes, coaches, guardians, and volunteers can use PH Protect as a secure and private way to report abuse, allowing the organization to track everything in a centralized and reliable place. In addition, Player’s Health also manages all documents and records on behalf of IYSA, ensuring all incidents and abuse reports are handled properly and timely, followed by investigations where necessary.

Player’s Health offers an additional application built for managing background checks, protecting athletes and organizations by thoroughly investigating all screening subjects through a variety of databases and search parameters. By integrating with other Player’s Health applications, this dashboard shows sports administrators in which coaches and staff members have completed the proper screenings in order to be compliant with policies from the US Center for Safesport. 
“IYSA is an incredible organization and we are happy to assist them in managing their risk management program. It’s our mission to help organizations like them to achieve the safest environment possible for all athletes.”

Josh Opiola, Player’s Health VP of Risk Services
Along with these applications, IYSA will be able to utilize the SafeSport training through their partnership with Player’s Health. Appropriate for any adult, this training is used to inform coaches, staff, and volunteers at IYSA how to prevent, recognize, and react responsibly to child sexual abuse and other misconduct.
