What clearances do I need?

Individuals who are paid to oversee children/have direct contact with children must provide/complete the following four items:

  1. 1. PA State Police Criminal Record Check (PATCH)

  2. 2. PA Child Abuse History Clearance

  3. 3. FBI Criminal Background Check

  4. 4. Safe Sport Certification

Please Note: The law provides that the FBI Criminal Background Check may be replaced for minor children (referees who are and will be 14-17 years old for the year) by a signed (by parent or guardian) and notarized affidavit attesting that the child has not committed any of the disqualifying crimes. If you are turning 18 years of age in 2019 you will need a FBI Clearance.
