Risk Management Assessment (RMA)

All coaches are required by Washington State Youth Soccer to undergo a Risk Management Assessment (RMA) prior to coaching any soccer club in the state of Washington. The registration for an RMA is entered into a system called Affinity.

When registering for your RMA:

  • Use your legal name
  • The name you register in Affinity must match the name you are registered in Stack Sports

The systems are VERY specific, right down to spacing and punctuation!

Due to a change in the RMA process, applications for background checks through Washington Youth Soccer will not be available until JULY 1.

NPSL Regular Season

It is highly recommended to establish a team manager prior to the regular NPSL season. If no team manager is assigned, the coach assumes the responsibilities of the team manager.

The Team Manager's responsibilities are found on: Team Manager Corner

In addition, it is VERY important to review and be familiar with all the NPSL League documentation in preparation for the season. The documentation can be found at:

Coaching Licenses

Storm King FC is asking all coaches to complete, at minimum, the online Grass Roots 4 v 4 certification which now replaces the F license. Contact the Storm King treasurer for reimbursement ($25) once you have completed the course. Storm King FC is working toward the goal of all head coaches having a D license or higher. Each year, Storm King FC sends a select handful of coaches to various coaching clinics. These coaching clinics are very in depth and time consuming but absolutely necessary to provide the best coaching possible for our athletes.
