Do volunteer coaches get a background check?

Yes. All volunteers taking on a leadership role within a recreational sport (coach, assistant coach, team mom/dad, scorekeeper, etc.) will undergo a 50-state criminal and sex offender background check. The Recreation Bureau pays for the background check. There are a number of disqualifiers for a volunteer. The City of Easton follows the disqualification guidelines set by the National Alliance for Youth Sports.
