Coaches Background Check

Background checks for coaches are now available. Please consult the Guidelines for Coach Background Check Fingerprinting (PDF) before attending a session.

Background Check Policy Co-Sponsored Youth Organizations

Chesterfield County Board of Supervisors approved the National Background Check for those individuals associated with co-sponsored youth leagues (i.e. coaches, board members, etc). All new coaches will be required to go through the new background check process, which includes fingerprinting. All approved individuals will be sent a national background check card with an expiration date of three years. Current background check cardholders may be selected for random background checks.

View our Frequently Asked Questions about the Co-Sponsored Coaching Background Process (PDF) for more information.
