Background Check Requirement

Mandatory Background Checks & Screening Policy

Background checks are now fully integrated into the NWBA Non-Athlete Registration session; one easy step just register to become an NWBA member!

Background checks are conducted by National Center for Safety Initiatives (NCSI) and SportsEngine.

All Non-Athlete members of NWBA must satisfactorily complete criminal background checks as they may interact directly, and regardless of frequency, with athletes as a regular part of their duties. All background checks must be completed through National Center for Safety Initiatives. No other form of background checks will be accepted.

NWBA Policies and Procedures state Article III, Section 3.4 (4.): Employees and volunteers of NWBA, and member clubs who interact directly and frequently with athletes as a regular part of their duties and individuals with any interest in a member club must be non-athlete members of NWBA and satisfactorily complete criminal background checks as required by NWBA. This does not apply to volunteers such as timers, scorekeepers, computer operators, etc. who only have limited contact with athletes during a game. Any individual who is banned, currently suspended or ineligible for membership is pro­hibited from serving as timers, scorekeepers, or computer operator, or otherwise being in the competition venue at any time in connection with a NWBA activity.

For questions or submit a request for review of background check please contact Brandon McBeain, Director of Membership Services and Programs, brandonmcbeain@nwba.org or (719) 266-4082 ext. 108.
