Since 2008 NAYS has had a collaborative initiative with Priority Research, one of the industry's leading innovators of background screening solutions. In 2010, Priority Research created a new division called Protect Youth Sports® to focus exclusively on screening youth sports coaches. This partnership was created to provide NAYS members and other youth sports organizations with an essential service.
Since a uniform system does not exist, background checks should be conducted to meet your organizations screening policies. Protect Youth Sports® has developed minimum recommendations depending upon your state to assist your organization in creating your policy. Sign up is completely free for NAYS Chapters.
