Background Checks for Sports Associations and Organizations

Non-Profits and volunteer organizations depend on the goodwill of volunteers to carry out their missions. We are hopeful that individuals volunteer their time for a cause with a passion however, today with the knowledge we have, we realize it’s too risky to allow someone to show-up and volunteer without conducting a thorough background screening. According to ChildHelp More than 90% of juvenile sexual abuse victims know their perpetrator in some way. In the long run, we want to embrace our volunteers and make them feel confident that a background report is being conducted for the benefit of the children. We can do this by taking a few precautionary measures:Create a Background Screening Policy for your organization and post it for all to see.
  1. Identify volunteer positions for your organization that will require background screening.
  2. Identify the reports for each position.
  3. Identify offenses or findings that would disqualify a volunteer.
  4. Determine the frequency of background screening.
  5. Make sure you are FCRA Compliant.
