It’s unfortunate, but Background Checks are a necessary part of youth sports for every organization…or they should be. Almost ten years ago we decided to require Background Checks from our 10,000+ Volunteers. We knew we were signing up for a big project, but Sports Illustrated Play worked with us to deliver a solution that offered comprehensive results and an easy-to-use case management tool. KidSafePlus has become an important part of our overall risk management strategy.
Our organization strives to provide a fun and safe experience for every player…no easy task with 8,500 players. When we decided to require Background Checks from our Coaches, we wanted a quality product that could be incorporated into our online registrations. We chose KidSafePlus because it could be seamlessly added into the Sports Illustrated Play Volunteer registration process—no chasing Volunteers to complete their checks needed. KidSafePlus is a great product that has saved us loads of time.
We had successfully used Sports Illustrated Play’s online registration for four years when we decided to introduce Background Checks into our overall process—it just made sense to choose KidSafePlus. Integration was a big factor for us and since Background Checks are built into the Volunteer registration and results are automatically visible on rosters, it’s easy for us to be sure that only eligible volunteers ever get assigned to Teams and have access to our kids.
