Process Overview: Three Steps are Required

In order to help protect PA youth from criminals with histories of crimes against children, the Pacific Association was one of the first USATF Associations to adopt background checking procedures. Subsequently the National USATF adopted procedures and currently uses the NCSI (National Center for Safety Initiatives) system. In 2016, the SafeSport training was also made a requirement.
