Pennsylvania Child Protection Laws & Clearances apply to Referees too



As of July 1, 2015, all paid employees age 14 and older working in the state of Pennsylvania, that interact directly with children, are required to get background clearances.  This must be done before the first night of an Entry Level Class, and for anyone transferring to Eastern Pennsylvania from another State Association.

      Hi Nancy, visit the website page under the Referee tab > Background Clearances/SafeSport
      All of the clearance information is there with links to the appropriate websites.
