Background Checks for Coaches

Protecting Our Youth
In accordance with Recreation Department policy, all youth program coaches will be required to submit to a background check either through their respective programs or through the Protect Youth Sports online screening process at their own expense. The background check costs $11.95.

An approved background check is valid across all Madison youth programs for 1 full year.

If you would like to submit your information for an electronic background check, you may do so by visiting the Protect Youth Sports Background Check website.

All information obtained by the Recreation Department will be kept strictly confidential.
