The Board has voted to adjust our background check process beginning January 1st, 2019. Effective for all spring sports, we will require that a background check be completed through Anne Arundel County, as is the current practice, but it will only remain good for one year instead of three. Every person who registers as a coach or team parent should complete a new background check. The reason for the change is to err on the side of caution when it comes to child safety, which is paramount for the organization. Unfortunately, the landscape of sports and child safety related concerns has escalated in recent years and after much discussion the Board decided to shorten the gap in our background check policy.
There have been several incidents where the Board learned of an act that would preclude someone from coaching who had a cleared background check, but wouldn’t have been discovered unless someone in the community made us aware. As it has stood for some time, if a person has a cleared background check, but does something unlawful there is no way of us knowing that they should be precluded. While shorting the gap is no guarantee that some situations won’t arise, the smaller window will allow us to catch things sooner than waiting three years for the next round of background checks. While, the best measure to ensure child safety still relies on parents being engaged in the sporting process, we hope this helps us avoid some gap pitfalls that have come to our knowledge.
We realize that there is a small cost, $7.00, and a small time commitment to complete, about three to four minutes, but we greatly appreciate all of our volunteers that not only give of their time to be a coach or team parent, but who will take a little bit of extra time and money to complete the background check to help ensure child safety. If you need financial assistance with the background check, please contact the sports commissioner, who will be able to assist.
