BACKGROUND CHECK INFORMATION

Enjoy peace of mind with the USA Football National Center for Safety Initiatives Background Checks Program.

 USA Football has teamed up with the National Center for Safety Initiatives offering background check services to NFL FLAG league organizers.

The fully managed screening system is designed for youth-serving organizations with optimal safety in mind. The USA Football subsidized program is tailored to meet the needs of youth football organizations. Services include a fully managed and administered program featuring online applicant self registration and "Red Light/Green Light" determinations for easy-to-read background check reports so making decisions is easier. Our Check-It-Twice™ searches are the foundation for every program and include searches through two independently screened and selected national database providers.



The programs and services of NCSI directly reduce the incidence of harm to children and protect youth-serving organizations from child predators. Our shared goal is the overall eradication of child abuse and molestation. 

 NCSI's background screening programs are recognized as the "Standard of Care" in the youth-serving industry. NCSI was formed in partnership with the National Council of Youth Sports (NCYS), with the goal of significantly increasing the level of safety for our youth. 

Background Checks are paid for Bi-Annually but are checked each year. Currently, the cost of the background check is paid for by NLPAFFL. Because of the unique relationship between coaches and athletes, and the opportunity for individual contact in private practice and game locations, there are special requirements for background screening. All NLPAFFL coaches are required to go through a full background check prior to approval of being a volunteer coach. All athletic coaches are required to be screened every two years. Upon initial assignment, you will be contacted by your League Coordinator and given instructions as to how to complete your background check on-line. 

Why does NLPAFFL have a background screening program?

Background Checks have been implemented by NFL FLAG FOOTBALL to: 

1.    Promote a safe, nurturing, and supportive athletic environment in which youth athletes can pursue their athletic goals.

2.    Provide an environment where parents of children can feel good about allowing their child to participate in the sport of flag football and; and Please note; this screening is not intended to serve as a profiling tool and is not used to determine coaching eligibility, 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 insure inappropriate behavior will not occur. 

3.    Who conducts the background screens? 

National Flag Football has selected National Center for Safety Initiatives as its national provider. National Center for Safety Initiatives is a specialty consulting firm that provides professional background screening for all types of agencies. More information about National Center for Safety Initiatives is available on the NCSI website at www.ncsisafe.com. The Technical Support Desk at NCSI can be contacted by telephone at 440-542-9690
