Volunteer Matters:

The YMCA of Greater Cincinnati has asked that all volunteers over the age of 18 go through a background check.  This is for insurance purposes and to help protect the swimmers and parents.  It is a simple online process.  Background checks will be valid for two years.  There is a fee of $26 for the background check that the Y will pay.  It will ask you at the end of registering and submitting the background check if you would like to pay for any part of the background check.  The Y has budgeted for this so please do not feel like you have to pay for the background check.  The link to register for an account on Volunteer Matters and submit a background check ishttps://cincinnatiymca.volunteermatters.org/volunteer/sign-up/19039.  It would be fantastic if all volunteers for the Cuda Classic meet in June could be background checked.  The process to register should take about 15 -20 minutes.  It can take up to 2 weeks for the results to be cleared.
