Staff, Contractor, & Volunteer Screening
All prospective staff members, contractors, and volunteers who will be working a youth event must be certified with the National Center for SafeSport and pass a background check through USA Ultimate’s preferred service as well as any additional screenings and certifications required by our event partners–including but not limited to a Live Scan, a TB test, and/or proof of COVID-19 vaccination.
Sexual Abuse & Misconduct Prevention
All prospective staff members, contractors, and volunteers who will be working a youth event will be taught best practices for preventing sexual abuse and misconduct through their certification with the National Center for SafeSport.
