Special Offer: Streamlined background checks and training for volunteer coaches


Earlier this year, the National Alliance for Youth Sports (NAYS) launched a new program with Sterling Volunteers to provide a streamlined coach screening and training process.

Youth sports coaches no longer need to complete a background check authorization in one place and a training somewhere else. Coaches affiliated with NAYS Member Organizations that are enrolled in this unique program can register for their background check and training in one simple process.

Organizations are liking the convenience of tracking their coach requirements on the NAYS website.

“The partnership has enabled our department to streamline background checks to an online system where we now have a database that is much more efficient and organized,” Chris Skidmore, Recreation Superintendent for the City of Reynoldsburg Parks and Recreation Department, says. “Our dedicated volunteer coaches appreciate the convenience of being able to complete the background check at home online at their convenience.”

We are excited to offer a special holiday bonus as an incentive for organizations that enroll now. 

Special Offer: Register 10 or more coaches for the background check and training bundle and receive $100 in NAYS credit. To take advantage of the offer, organizations must enroll in the background screening program and register coaches by January 15. Request more information.

Set your program apart by providing parents with confidence that their athletes are in good hands. Significantly reduce administrative time by registering coaches for an advanced level background check and the NAYS Coach Training and Membership program online.
