Background Check Procedures

You have shown interest in volunteering with CV Softball this season. Certain documents are required to be submitted to be approved to volunteer with CV Softball. As of this date, the required documentation has not been received, your volunteer status has not been approved.

State law prohibits CV Softball from allowing any volunteer to begin volunteer service in any capacity who has not completed all background clearance checks required by the Pennsylvania’s Child Protective Services Law. All volunteers must submit proof of the following three (3) clearances to be approved:

1.     PA State Police Criminal History Check - request completed online and a response is normally received within days; AND

2.     PA Department of Human Services Certification - request completed online but the response can take up to a week; AND

3.     FBI Clearance (for those individuals who have not lived in Pennsylvania for 10 consecutive years) Register online but must go to a local approved vendor to be fingerprinted; OR

4.     Keep Kids Safe Certification (for those individuals who have lived in PA for the past 10 years) Certification that is signed, dated and witnessed. (BLANK CERTIFICATION ATTACHED TO THIS E-MAIL)

Please note that anyone wishing to volunteer for the league must submit the certifications from #1 and #2 above, as well as #3 OR #4 whichever applies. There will always be 3 documents required to be submitted prior to being approved to volunteer with the league. I HAVE ATTACHED THE BACKGROUND CHECK PROCEDURES TO THIS E-MAIL FOR YOUR REVIEW.

If you have any of the documentation that is required, please forward to this e-mail address immediately. Once approved, you will be notified by e-mail.

Please contact me with any questions. If you are no longer interested in volunteering, please contact me by e-mail to be removed from the listing.
