Volunteer Background Check

BYC requires ALL VOLUNTEERS & COACHES (head coaches and assistant coaches) to be in compliance with PA Act 153 and Protecting Young Victims from Sexual Abuse and Safe Sport Authorization Act of 2017.  All BYC volunteers will be issued a picture ID card.  BYC will hold registration event(s) for their volunteers prior to the start of each season.  All required documents should be held onto by the volunteer until the data collection day / picture ID day.

New Volunteer:  Must have all of the following documentation completed prior to coaching in a sport and in order to receive your picture ID   

  1. Click here to complete a National Background Check, PA Criminal Reference Check, and PA Child Abuse History Clearance
  2. Concussion prevention education (live seminar or on-line learning module completed annually).  BYC will track this information from attendance at a live seminar or completion of the on-line learning module: Concussion Training 

Returning Volunteer:  will only need to go thru this part of the process every 3 years but will need to complete the National Background Check (free) and Concussion Prevention Education
