NEW Spectator Behavior Policy

NEW Locker Room Monitor Policy


Just a reminder for long standing volunteers and a note to new administrators that screening is done only through the national vendor (NCSI) and is good for two (2) seasons/years. Because the vendor is at the mercy of the local clerks availability to check records, there can be delays that are out of their hands. Therefore, we encourage everyone who will need to screen for the upcoming season to do so in the next couple weeks before the rush begins. Particularly with Pennsylvania coaches/volunteers, the time for screening takes slightly longer.

In addition, Pennsylvania residents must upload copies of their Pennsylvania required documents. Screening cannot be completed without them. Residents of all other jurisdictions, need to upload a copy of the front and back of their license.

Safe Sport Courses /US Center for Safe Sport Each 18 and older participant (volunteer, coach, player) must ANNUALLY take either the Safe Sport Mandatory training or Safesport Refresher Training. The training and refresher training can be started, placed on hold and you can return to complete should you have smaller segments of time available.

From the national office through to the local association, we are responsible for identifying a person who can focus on DEI (diversity, equity & inclusion) within our various programs. Get to know the people in your program and make them all feel
