Effective for the 2019/2020 seasonal year, Ohio North's new Player Safety program will require adults to complete their background screening (every two years) and applicable player safety compliance (as required by state/federal laws and/or Ohio North policy) directly in SportsEngine regardless of your current registration platform.
An adult is defined as all coaches, team managers, trainers, organization staff/employees, board members, referees and any other person age 18 or older who may have the opportunity to have direct and unmonitored access to children in your organization.
Background screening applications and player safety compliance MUST be completed by the applicant. Any individual who completes an application on behalf of another individual is subject to suspension or other discipline, and in addition, may be subject to criminal or civil liability.
NOTE: Please contact your league/club to confirm any additional requirements as well as to confirm who is responsible for the $20 background screening payment prior to completing your background screening and player safety compliance.
