Why YFBCA Encourages Getting Background Check? 1.The main reason is to protect the safety of the kids participating in the sport from the unthinkable and to ensure a positive youth football experience for the kids. 2.Additionally, to protect youth football leagues from incurring liability, meet the requirements of insurers, and to protect the leagues economic interests against would be embezzlers. 3.Lastly, to protect the coaches themselves and insure that the atmosphere remains competitive but does not turn tragic due to lack of screening.
YFBCA Background Checks with Volunteer Check A background check through our VTS system include the following: Turnaround time: Our searches typically take 3-5 business days compared to several weeks for many gov. agencies. Cost – the background check services we provide are an attempt to supply the organizations with the most complete search for the cost. Compared to an FBI or DOJ Fingerprint our results are faster and significantly less expensive (451 fee for FBI/DOJ and $5-$45 rolling fee charged by fingerprinting site. A local police department background check will often only provide results for the local city/county/or parish and does not provide national database searches. Often times known criminals move to areas they know there record is clean. Through the VTS system….coaches can donate the cost of the background check to the organization as well. Reporting- You and the organizations you serve, can have permission based access to those screens that affect the organization Multi purpose/portability – The Coaches can use these screens, through their MyBackgroundCheck.com account for other purposes including: Volunteering with other organizations, employment, renting or other applications they see fit simply by using their account to invite others they wish, to view their background check.
