ODSL Coaches Background Checks
All ODSL Coaches 18 years of age and older will need to pass a criminal/sex offender registry background check every 2 years in order to coach in the league. It is the responsibility of each team to ensure background checks are completed. The minimum requirement for background checks includes at least a 7-year state-wide criminal history and nationwide sex offender registration. Teams may use a background check service of their choice (suggested services are listed below). USA Swimming Coaches can provide copies of their on-deck credentials showing the background check expiration dates.
Teams should gather all background checks for their coaches and send a copy to Eric Bateman at [email protected] by Monday, May 31.
