Volunteers

Please note all Washington Soccer Coaches, Volunteers, Referees, and Board Members must follow PA West clearance requirements.

State Law Change Affects All Clubs

The PA Child Protective Services Law changed in 2015. The change requires all coaches and volunteers involved with youth organizations to complete a State Police Criminal Record Check and a PA Child Abuse History Clearance. For individuals who have not resided in PA continuously for the previous 10 years they must also complete an FBI Criminal Background Check.  Volunteers must provide a completed and notarized Volunteer Qualification Affidavit if they’ve lived in PA for at least 10 continuous years; volunteers who have not met the residency requirement must also complete an FBI Criminal Background Check.
