KEEP US SAFE

A core value of the Charlotte Independence Soccer Club (CISC) is to promote the health, safety and welfare of our young athletes.  As such CISC strive to adopt cutting edge policies and practices designed to protect and support the mental, physical and emotional health of our club members.

REPORT IT!

LEARN ABOUT IT!

  2. Parents are strongly encouraged to explore the many Keep Us Safe resources available for background and education.
