Q: I have a background check from another organization (i.e. area school, hockey, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts). Can I use it to comply with U.S. Figure Skating SafeSport requirements?
A: Yes, but only if the background check was completed by NCSI. This is because of the criteria set by the U.S. Olympic Committee (which now has a Center for SafeSport). If the background check wasn’t completed by NCSI, we can’t use it. We promise, We've have asked! If it was completed by NCSI, Please send your documentation to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q: There is a $20 charge for the background check. Who pays for that?
A: The SCJH will reimburse members for this amount.
Q: When Do I need to Have my SafeSport & Background Check Done by.
A: In order to ensure our club compliance, we would appreciate if you would complete your background checks and SafeSport training by the end of October. If you have any questions, please contact the Club!
