Background Check Solutions designed for Youth Sports

Running a youth sports program is a massive undertaking. Often times, parents and other volunteers handle nearly all of the responsibilities involved.

Coaches, assistant coaches, team parents, refs, umpires, officials, facilities staff, bus drivers, and even volunteer coordinators all have direct interaction with kids throughout the season. While nearly everyone involved will help provide the safest, most secure environment for all children involved, there is always the chance a predator can and will use this as an opportunity to get closer to kids. It is our responsibility collectively to prevent that from happening, and a great starting point is the mandatory background check for all volunteers and staff.

Volunteer Coach Background Checks through industry expert Protect Youth Sports are designed to help leagues and youth sports officials implement and maintain a thorough background screening process and child abuse prevention program for volunteers, staff and employees.

Protect Youth Sports has established a very firm and reputable standing within the youth sports community, with a proven history of serving over 30,000 youth-serving organizations.

BASIC Package Search

This is a package including the following:

  • SSN Verification and Address History
  • National Criminal Database Search
  • National Sex Offender Search
  • Re-verification of criminal records
  • Alias Names

The SSN search validates the SSN that a particular applicant provides. The SSN search is vital to verifying the identity of an individual, alias names and any previous addresses. All alias names found are searched on the national database and sex offender registries, in addition to the applicant name provided.

The National Criminal Database search has the potential to identify certain crimes that may have occurred outside any addresses found on the SSN search. The national search is not recommended as a stand-alone service in every state due to the limitations of the data being queried.

The sex offender search will identify if an applicant is listed on a particular sex offender registry. The sex offender search is critical to identifying any prior sex offenses.

All hits found on the national database and sex offender registries are re-verified for accuracy in compliance with the FCRA.

PLUS Package Search

This is a package including the following:

  • SSN Verification and Address History
  • National Criminal Database Search
  • National Sex Offender Search
  • Re-verification of criminal records
  • Alias names
  • (1) county or statewide criminal court search (plus mandatory fees)

The PLUS includes everything in the BASIC Package search, plus:

The criminal court search is a name check for any criminal history (felony and misdemeanors where available), at the county or state level. Due to the fact that a majority of crimes occur within the jurisdiction of an individual’s home address, the county criminal search or statewide criminal search should be ordered based on the most current address history of the applicant, or the address with the longest residence within the past 7 years.

All services ordered should be related to the actual job descriptions and functions of the particular applicant’s job.
