When children's safety and well-being are at stake, procedures must be in place that help program administrators ensure the protection of their young participants. Volunteer screening and conducting background checks are complex topics that youth sports organizations must address before volunteers can work with children. The National Alliance for Youth Sports (NAYS) strongly encourages all youth sports organizations to perform background checks on their coaches as part of the screening process.
To make the coach background screening process easier for our Member Organizations, NAYS has partnered with Sterling Volunteers to build a customized integration system. NAYS Member Organizations can request and manage background checks through their NAYS account, significantly reducing administrative time.
This partnership is truly a game changer. Here are some additional benefits each NAYS Member Organization will receive by signing up for background checks with NAYS and Sterling Volunteers:
*Quantity discounts available for 50+ coaches
New York: Additional $95 New York State Office of Court Administration fee may apply for background checks in select counties of the State of New York. Contact us for details.

In this recorded webinar, you will learn the components of a Sterling Volunteers quality and compliant background check, an overview of the NAYS and Sterling Volunteers partnership, and a demonstration of the integrated screening and training solution for coaches.
