TSSAS Safe Sport Policies
TSSAS is pleased to provide each League with the policies to adopt so that each League may comply with the Safe Sports Act as of September 1, 2019 and to help each applicable team and player comply fully with the Safe Sport Act. We will work with the State Referee Association to make sure that the protections of the Safe Sport Act apply, in full compliance with its terms, to all players and referees to the maximum extent required by the Safe Sport Act. We have all supported these basic principles over the years. We can now take further steps to implement these principles.
