United Sports Youth League. are committed to the safety of our participants. We have a thorough background check program for coaches participating in our programs which are outlined below:

Background checks are REQUIRED for all Assistant Coaches, Head Coaches, and Staff. We currently use Check to run these checks. This organization is a full-service background screening company's that offers volunteer-based organizations a one-stop-shop for background checks, paperless solutions and child safety training. Volunteer and staff screening is their specialty, including a very thorough national background check service with a national criminal database search, national sex offender check, SSN identity check, and address history, plus a complete re-verification of all criminal hits for guaranteed accuracy on over 400 million national criminal records.

All Fees associated with the mandatory background checks are paid by United Sports Youth League

Our coordinators are vigilant in the protection of our youth. Coach’s tee shirts and rosters are not given to coaches until a background check has been completed.

Background Checks have been implemented for the purpose of:

1.  Promoting a safe, nurturing, and supportive athletic environment in which youth athletes can pursue their athletic goals.
2. Providing an environment where parents of children can feel good about allowing their child to participate in the sport of flag football. Please note; this screening is not intended to serve as a profiling tool nor can screening guarantee that incidents of abuse by coaches will not occur. Background screening is designed as a preventative risk management tool but does not ensure inappropriate behavior will not occur.
3. Checkr is our primary national provider for background checks. More information about Checkr is available on their website at or by contacting their support service.
