The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.

How To Complete Risk


Please use the following steps to assist you in completing risk.

Risk for Ohio South is defined as the following four items, all of which are handled inside your Player's Health account:

  1. Lindsay's Law - renewed annually
  2. SafeSport - renewed annually, one course per year (refresher course if initial course is already taken)
  3. Background Check - valid for two years from time of returned status
  4. Concussion Training - valid for three years from the time of completion

NOTE: In order for you to utilize the following steps, you MUST have been added by your league or club into Demosphere first!

PLEASE ensure you are using the email that your league or club admin added you with, or that you may have registered to volunteer with! If you need to confirm what email that is, please contact your league or club.

NOTE: Please use the web browsers Chrome or Firefox to complete risk.

  2. Log into Demosphere HERE.

STEP 2: Login To Demosphere

Once you login to your Demosphere account, you will see a pop-up dialogue to complete the Risk Management process in the Player’s Health system. If you do not want to begin the Risk Management process immediately, you may click “remind me later” and this message will appear each time you login, until you have started the process in the Player’s Health system. 

NOTE: if you get interrupted or have network issues during the “begin process” step, and are no longer able to access the pop-up dialog, please logout, clear your browser’s cache, and log back in. This should resolve the issue.


If you don’t get the pop up, or if you click “Remind Me Later”, you can access the Player’s Health login by navigating to the “My Account” section on the dashboard, and then the “Risk Mgmt” tab:

Only ONE SafeSport training needs to be completed per year (i.e. the Intro course or a single refresher course).

STEP 9: Finish

Complete! If still logged in when done, you will get a congratulations message.

If you were logged out and go back in, there will be no more requirements (boxes) for you to access, and the screen will be mostly blank with two items on the left side - My Reports and My Messages. This means you're done.
