The recently passed Safe Sport Act mandates a new standard of care for all organizations and individuals involved in youth sports; regardless of the size of the organization. To ensure compliance with this Act, Spirit League is currently updating their volunteer approval and training process to include a multi-level approach.
For volunteers 18 years and older, changes will include:
- Abuse prevention training,
- Mandatory reporting training, and
- Background checks.
The Spirit League Board is also reviewing new polices including a Volunteer Background Check Policy and Abuse Prevention Policy, anticipating enactment later this year.
Information on the new process will be emailed to all volunteers this fall and will be kicked-off by a Coaches Meeting within the next few months. Watch your email for more information. Questions? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
