Who is Protect Youth Sports?
Protect Youth Sports is a nationwide leader in creating custom background screening management solutions for youth sports, recreational, and community organizations of any size; helping these organizations manage safer, more cost effective, volunteer driven programs year round.
Our experienced, knowledgeable and professional staff understands what it means to run such an organization, and we know the challenges you face every day. We understand because many of us have done it ourselves. When combining that knowledge with our Verity Volunteer Background Screening Platform, we are able to provide you with the highest quality background checks available in the industry today.
We know volunteer background screening.
With over 10 years experience in youth sports volunteer background screening, we know how to design a solution that fits YOUR needs. We understand the ‘ins-and-outs’ of running a youth league, a recreation center, a community volunteer program. Why? Because we ourselves participate in all the same programs. Protect Youth Sports was built by volunteers who saw a need for better background screening and dedicated the next ten years developing industry leading solutions to meet those needs.
As parents and volunteers, we understand how important it is for youth to participate in youth and amateur sports and recreational programs. These programs are an invaluable part of growing up; learning how to be part of a team, challenging yourself, developing strong character, and making new friends. Unfortunately, these types of programs, as we have all seen, attract predators seeking to surround themselves in a youth-centric environment. As uncomfortable as it is to think about, it is something we must not only think about, but work together to prevent. Providing children with a safe and secure environment is our responsibility.
Protect Youth Sports can help you build a custom background screening program to manage background checks for youth coaches, referees, staff and other volunteers. We work with leagues and organizations of all sizes to develop comprehensive custom screening solutions that meet any budget.
