Free Voluntary Background Checks Offered to US Lacrosse Umpires
Beginning on August 5th, US Lacrosse will be providing adult officials, as members of US Lacrosse, an option to voluntarily complete a background check through NCSI. The background check is provided at no cost to the member.
Currently, KLUB does not require a background check for its members, but USL is moving toward requiring USL certified or registered umpires to complete this check.
This offer is a great opportunity for individuals to get ahead of the trend and to save anywhere from $20 to $75 (depending on a person’s state of residence).
Currenlty USL is exploring the feasibility of making background checks a mandatory requirement for officials. It is already a requirement for coaches and for umpires who seek certification as trainers, observers/raters, or assigners).
