Want to Save Time on Reviewing Background Checks? Try Automatic Coach Scoring.

Hiring coaches and volunteers takes time. First you have to craft the job posting and then get the ads out there. Then you have to comb through dozens or hundreds of thousands of applications. Next, you may invite applicants in for interviews. And, yes, there is (or should be) the paperwork to conduct a background check on these candidates. That all happens BEFORE the results are even in!

It’s exhausting and we get it. You may not have the staff to efficiently handle this amount of paperwork. You probably don’t have the time – who does, these days?!

That’s why we’re so proud of our commitment to making the process of conducting, reporting and reviewing screening results as easy as possible for you. We have a proven history of serving more than 18,000 youth organizations so we know what we’re talking about!

It all starts with our Volunteer Screening Guidelines. We’ve formatted a series of easy-to-understand screening guidelines that youth sports organizations should follow. And, we’ve made them accessible and affordable to even the smallest youth sports groups with our paperless VERITY solution. Here’s what we think makes a sound screening process:

  1. Have a Written Screening Policy
  2. Provide Job Descriptions for Every Job
  3. Obtain Completed Application Forms for All Positions
  4. Obtain a Signed and Dated Background Consent Form
  5. Review References and Employer Information
  6. Interview the Applicant
  7. Conduct a Criminal Background Check
  8. Review Procedures and Provide Continual Oversight of Employees and Volunteers
  9. Provide Training for All Employees and Volunteers and Hold Them Accountable

If you have questions about which background screening solution is right for you and your agency, we urge you check out our online consultation service. So many times you may find yourself asking, “What type of criminal background check should I do for my staff, employees and volunteers?” Protect Youth Sports has consulted with thousands of youth sports organizations to help them understand the types of criminal record sources. We’d love to help you, too.

These time-saving features are all built with you and your busy schedules in mind.

But our Automatic Coach Scoring is, perhaps, the finest solution we have to help ease the burden of running so many background checks. Often, the biggest time suck in reviewing background reports is determining if an applicant’s record is acceptable or a pass/fail. With Automatic Coach Scoring, that consuming process is now automated in an easy-to-read format for your risk management team. Gone are the piles of paperwork clogging desks! In their place is an online pass/fail notification process that automatically shows up when an applicant’s screening results are posted in VERITY. All you have to do is log in to VERITY and you’ll see something like this:
