Screening Process & Log In
Link to SCREENING LOG IN
Effective 8/16/19 motor vehicle records will no longer be searched for screening purposes.
Persons to be screened: Every adult (person over 18) who access to participants under 18 years of age.
Frequency: When initially new (or never having been screened by the MidAm vendor) and every two (2) years thereafter (2 hockey seasons).
How: Use the appropriate link above (coach or referee); each applicant must complete the online application with NCSI. Check to be sure that you have completed all segments as an incomplete application will NOT be processed to completion by the vendor. Upon data entry, payment via credit card or checking account in the amount of $30.00 is made, a receipt is generated and sent to applicant via e-mail. MidAm continues to pay all charges in excess of $30.00.
Results projected to be available in 7 – 10 days following data entry; access results through the same means as data entry. Upon successful screen, a personalized letter is generated with cut out segment which can be laminated and carried or duplicated and carried with the team book. I encourage you to make a couple copies of your letter so that you don’t have to remember how to go back online and obtain it many months later.
Any “hits” will be on hold until viewed and handled pursuant to our normal protocol. If there is an issue that needs further explanation, you will receive an e-mail from me asking for the information so that the screening committee can complete its review. Please do not overlook e-mails pertaining to screening. The screening will not clear until the information is received. “Hits” don’t mean an undesirable candidate, but do require resolution.
PENNSYLVANIA RESIDENTS NOTE
A new process no longer requires all Pennsylvania residents to sign a separate form for PA BMV search. If you have completed the electronic signature page (currently the 1st form you will see and complete), the data collected will be passed through onto the requisite form by the vendor and submitted on your behalf. this is only for Pennsylvania applicants/residents. regarding Fees for 2 of the 3 Pennsylvania checks have been eliminated for volunteers. The FBI check (including finger printing) is still required and part of the separate state requirements that must then be on file with your association [separate and apart from the screening required by USOC, USA Hockey, and Mid Am Hockey]. (Pennsylvania specific requirements to your local association must be renewed every 60 months).
Be certain your volunteers are complying with Pennsylvania 153 and that their results are submitted to and maintained by your association.
All USA Hockey on-ice officials must also complete screening with the MidAm vendor. Prior to screening, you must first have your USA Hockey official’s number, as this is required in order to login to the site. The results are maintained in the USA Hockey database and results are good for two hockey seasons (registration with USA Hockey must occur each year).
