Coaches Background Clearances
All coaches and volunteers who will be working with the children of the club are required to obtain an background clearance BEFORE the start of the season.  

Pennsylvania State laws have changed and are in effect for clearances. The process has changed, and you must now complete two background checks. 

You must complete the PA State Police screening linked here --->State Police Criminal Record Check 
As well as the PA Child Abuse clearances linked here --->PA Child Abuse History Clearance 
You must also provide a notarized affidavit if you have lived IN PA for the last 10 years. You can download this form here.  ---> Volunteer Affidavit
If you have lived in PA for less than 10 years, you will need to obtain an FBI Criminal Background Check instead of the affidavit. This clearance is an additional $27.50.  --->FBI Criminal Background Check

There is a $10 charge for each of the first two, with the full $20 going towards those agencies. Please click the links to complete those clearances. Once you have done so, you can upload those forms to the regular PAWest Background Screening Registration Website. If you have coaches with us before, you already have an account. If you are a new coach, click the following link and log in with the same user ID and password you use to sign into the seasonal registration site to sign up your kids.  That website link is --->PAWest Online Background Screening 


All info we have on this change is posted at the link.
