“It is a policy of South Bay Soccer Referee Association to neither tolerate nor allow sexual harassment by any member of the Association. Upon receiving any credible complaint of sexual harassment, the board will take appropriate action utilizing the Association’s Disciplinary process which in the case of a credible sexual harassment complaint will involve notification to the appropriate authorities. All SBSRA members must pass a background check by ‘Live Scan’ before they are assigned to any Youth Soccer matches.”

SBSRA provides a standard Sexual Abuse/Harassment Awareness Training package to all SBSRA members to insure all its members are aware of how to deal with issues involving sexual abuse/harassment. The training is accessible to all SBSRA members as PowerPoint HERE and as Adobe PDF HERE.


By providing availability to work SBSRA assigned matches, Association members are affirming that they have read and understand the SBSRA policy and guidelines in regards to Sexual Harassment as listed herein.
