Hey Ref! Do You Have Your Background Check?
All adults planning to referee must have a current clearance; that's a clearance that has been completed within the last two years and won't expire before the end of the current playing session. PA West Soccer accepts clearances in the form of PA Act 33/34 clearances or those completed through the PA West Soccer online system. To apply for clearance using the PA West Soccer system click here.
Be sure to complete the form and select a payment method before closing your browser. If you close your browser before completing the entire application process it will cancel the application.
If you're unsure about the expiration date of your current clearance please contact your club Risk Management Coordinator.
