Years ago, USJF adopted the US Center for SafeSport’s programs and standards for education and training to protect athletes and participants from abuse. SafeSport has begun to require more rigorous background screens. Thus, our background screening has been updated to meet these new standards. Our screening vendor continues to be National Center for Security Initiatives (NCSI).
The major changes are that background screening is now required to be completed annually and there are more data sources available to conduct a wider, more thorough background screening. The screening fee has been REDUCED to $30.00. The new screening program is compliant with the newer, stricter SafeSport standards and includes two (2) annual background screens/checks.
Thank you to Mr. Keith Bryant, CEO, at USA Judo for helping to obtain NGB pricing for USJF as a Group A member.
