PA Criminal & Child Abuse Clearances for ALL Coaches

PA Criminal & Child Abuse Clearances for ALL Coaches

Effective July 1, 2015, per PA State Law, all coaches must complete the clearances required by the 2015 amendments to the PA Child Protective Services Law.  The PA Child Protective Services Law changed effective January 1, 2015.  The change no longer permits organizations like Old Allegheny Soccer to conduct background checks through a third party provider.  All background checks must be completed using the provider designated by PA per the requirements of the law.

   -State Police Criminal Record Check

   -PA Child Abuse History Clearance  

   -if PA resident for at least 10 continuous years…a complete and notarized Volunteer affidavit
