Thank You For Volunteering To Coach In Our Grassroots League

To keep our players safe we require that all volunteers obtain Pennsylvania required clearances. It is a simple 3 step process and only needs to be done once every 5 years! 

How To Obtain The Required Documents

PA State Police Report:

1) PA State Police Criminal Record Checks are free for volunteers

They can be obtained online by visiting the State Police website - Click Here.


2) Child Abuse History Report:

PA Child Abuse History Clearance requests may be made online - Click Here  They are free for volunteers.


3) FBI Criminal Background Check: For the FBI Background check only do one of the following:

  • If you have lived in the state of PENNSYLVANIA for the past 10 years, then you only need to fill out the Volunteer Qualification Affidavit and have it notarized: Volunteer Qualification Affidavit (PDF): Click Here

  • If you have NOT lived in the state of PENNSYLVANIA for the past 10 years, then you need to request an FBI Fingerprint Clearance: Click Here   This link will take you to the page managed by Identogo for the Commonwealth of PA to help individuals attain an FBI clearance. The service code to apply for volunteer fingerprinting is 1KG6ZJ. The approximate cost will be 21.35.  (PHSA WILL REIMBURSE YOU FOR THIS STEP UPON PA WEST APPROVAL IF REQUIRED-Just keep your receipt)
