The new PA Child Protection Laws require volunteers to complete the necessary background checks prior to volunteering. QSC follows the guidance supplied by EPYSA and Pennsylvania state laws. A great resource for information on these laws can be found at the KeepKidssafe.PA.gov website.
Who needs clearances? Adults applying for or currently holding a position as a volunteer at Quakertown Soccer Club.
How long are clearances good for? EPYSA just recently extended the length of time that clearances are good from 3 years to 5 years.
What clearances do I need? Refer to the QSC Background Check Flowchart
Who needs the FBI Fingerprint Clearance? Any unpaid volunteer that has not lived in PA for 10+ years. Also, any adult holding a paid position within the club (if applicable).
