Free Voluntary Background Checks Offered to US Lacrosse Umpires

KSLL Final
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).

For more information on the background check policy please go to: https://uslacrosse.org/safety/safesport.

You may also contact the Coordinator for Officials Development, John Slider, with questions or comments you may have.
