In addition to signing up with CHYSC, all coaches with CHYSC will be required to submit to a background check in accordance with PA law. Also, all coaches need to complete an online concussion training course, emailing the Certificate of Completion to the club.
Details for clearances can be read at keepkidssafe.pa.gov. Governor Wolf has instituted a fee waiver for volunteers. There are three documents that need to be completed
1. Child Abuse History Clearance – https://www.compass.state.pa.us/cwis/public/home
2. Pennsylvania Criminal Record Check – https://epatch.state.pa.us/Home.jsp
Signed Disclosure Statement (10+ yr continuous PA residents) http://keepkidssafe.pa.gov/cs/groups/webcontent/documents/document/c_160267.pdf
If you have not lived in Pennsylvania for the last 10 years, you would need to do an FBI check in lieu of the Signed Disclosure Statement.
The FBI check would not be free.
