(6) SafeSport Training Completed & Verified through Webpoint. 

(7) All coaches that work for (not volunteer for) a KRVA Club Team, must comply with PA Act 153. A copy of these DOES NOT need to be sent into the office.

Criminal History Record from the PA State Police (PATCH) system
Child Abuse Clearance obtained through the Department of Public Welfare
Fingerprint screening (this does not include volunteers with ten year consistent PA residence) – Service Code: 1KG756

Without meeting all the requirements listed above, the coach will remain ineligible and may not coach in any capacity with the club.

It is also mandated by the state of Pennsylvania that coaches have their PA 153 Clearances. The Region strongly recommends that Club Directors verify their coach’s clearances to comply with state law.

The region does not collect PA 153’s for coaches unless hired by the Region.
