Coach and Volunteer Background Checks
Your responsibility? To protect the children playing in your organization. Our responsibility? To ensure that.
There’s no such thing as being too careful, not when the statistics reveal a disturbing trend. According to the non-profit group Darkness2Light, nearly 70% of all reported sexual assaults (including assaults on adults) occur to children ages 17 and under. Although 30-40% of victims are abused by a family member, 50% of those reporting abuse by someone outside of the family said it was by someone whom they know and trust. Also, nearly 70% of child sex offenders have
between 1 and 9 victims; at least 20% have 10 to 40 victims.
Yeah, we we're floored, too.
We’ll help you automate, streamline and secure the youth sports coach and volunteer background check process, all in full compliance with Federal Reporting rules. Which, translates to protecting not only the kids, but also your sports organization and the privacy of your coaches and volunteers.

Security & Protecting the Privacy of Your Information
So there is your private information that you just filled out on a paper form, with bank or credit card information, social security numbers, birth dates, and more, just sitting on somebody’s desk, waiting to be processed. Next thing you know, there’s a charge on your statement for a big screen TV purchased in Fresno, Calif. – and you live in Baltimore.
SportSignup is in the business of handling highly confidential information in the form of volunteer background checks and payment information. We take extreme measures to ensure that our secure content management system can only be accessed by authorized people.
We’re in good with the Feds. SportSignup is fully compliant with the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), which mandates the proper processes and procedures for handling consumer disclosure and disputes. This helps to ensure that your coach and volunteer background screenings are being conducted under the strictest oversight of the law.
We continue to help organizations with FCRA Compliance:
When a case is opened we provide easy ways to communicate with registrants and document actions taken on a case
Provide letter and email templates
Tools that can be used for disqualifying someone based on their background check
All Coach and Volunteer Background Checks ARE NOT ALIKE! With KidSafePlus, all results are re-verified by trained researchers (real people), for no additional charge. We protect with Social Security Number Verification. And, through the National Criminal File Search, a database of over 200 million criminal records compiled from numerous records - government watch lists, fugitive watch lists, sexual and violent offenders registries, state and county repositories, and state department of corrections.
SportsSignup offers TWO quality background check options.
Single Name Search - uses only single name matches found from a Social Security Number (SSN) Trace.
Alias Search - uses all known aliases from a Social Security (SSN) Trace. The standard criminal database search is then done with this list of alias names, including maiden names if found.
With custom and fully integrated Background Check System, all of the KidSafePlus information will reside in one registration system. This makes it easy for you, the KidSafePlus administrator to know who has completed and cleared their background check and more importantly, who has not!
Even better, our KidSafePlus system enables you to manage the process by quickly identifying who still needs a background check and generating an e-mail notice; displaying the names of people in the organization who have had criminal activity; and displaying and managing current open cases while noting any ongoing activity.
Affordable and Simple
When it comes to our kids, the old cliché is true: it’s about dollars and sense. SportsSignup charges a reasonable per-registrant fee. We don’t charge you for the system, we don’t charge you for the set-up and we don’t charge you for training. The system is easy to use and we’re happy to walk
you through it. You may now give your administrators KidSafePlus privileges without sending SportsSignup any paperwork!
