State Law Change Affects All Clubs

The PA Child Protective Services Law changed effective January 1, 2015.  The change no longer permits organizations like PA West Soccer to conduct background checks through a third party provider.  All background checks must be completed using the provider designated by Pennsylvania per the requirements of the law.  Individuals fall into two categories…paid and volunteer…and each has its own set of required clearances. All individuals must upload the required documents into the PA West Soccer Online Risk Management System (link to the portal and additional info at the bottom of the page).

Volunteers must provide the following:

  -State Police Criminal Record Check
  -PA Child Abuse History Clearance
  -if PA resident for at least the past 10 years…a complete and notarized Volunteer affidavit
  -if PA resident for less than the past 10 years…FBI Criminal Background Check
 

Individuals who are paid to oversee the children/have direct contact with children must provide the following:

  -State Police Criminal Record Check
  -PA Child Abuse History Clearance
  -FBI Criminal Background Check
 
PLEASE NOTE:  DO NOT upload receipts; PA West Soccer only accepts clearance certificates.
