Please read the following and follow the steps in order to complete the requirements. Once completed, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and attach the concussion training certificate of completion, PA Child Abuse History Clearance, and PA State Police Criminal Records Check, along with the statement below.
1. Eastern PA Youth Soccer Association (EPYSA) Risk Management is good from August 1st to July 31st. You do not need to forward me a copy of this, as you will show up in the database once completed.
2. Concussion Training - watch the video, take the test, and then print certificate. If you forget to print this certificate, you need to watch the video and take the test again. There is a lot of good information on this site including a one page form for coaches to keep with them to be able to quickly evaluate a player and also a paper to hand out to the parents if you believe a player may have a concussion.
3. Beginning August 25, 2015, all adults 18 years and older applying for an unpaid position as a volunteer responsible for the welfare of a child and having direct contact with children, must complete the below clearances:
PA Child Abuse History Clearance (Free)
PA State Police Criminal Records Check (Free)
An FBI Criminal Background Check if you have not been a continuous resident of Pennsylvania for 10 years ($27.50)
4. Volunteers not requiring an FBI check, and have been a continuous resident of PA for the last ten years, must swear or affirm in writing that they have no other convictions that would disqualify them stating, "I affirm that I have been a continuous resident of Pennsylvania for the last (10) years and that I do not have any criminal convictions that would disqualify me from volunteering with the Northern Lebanon Soccer Club".
Volunteers between the ages of 14-17 are NOT required to have clearances. Adults (18 and up) who only volunteer one time, are NOT required to have clearances.
NLSC is required to keep records of all clearances so please provide these to the Secretary for our files.
NLSC will pay for any required clearances as long as the volunteer is with the club for a minimum of one year.
Submit receipts to the Board for reimbursement. If the volunteer leaves the club early, they must reimburse the club for these clearances.
ALL adults (anyone age 18 and up having direct contact with children) are “mandatory reporters” and must report any suspected abuse.
Volunteers are not required to have child abuse training or certification, although it is recommended.
The clearances are good for 60 months. They are portable and may be used with other organizations. If you did not pay for your clearances, they may not be used for employment.
