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 $16.90.
An approved background check is valid across all Madison youth programs for 1 full year. Some programs may have additional requirements.
After you complete the background check, you will receive a link via e-mail for a training program on child safety as it pertains to abuse and neglect. Once you successfully complete the 25-question quiz with a passing grade, you will be added to the list of approved coaches.
All information obtained by the Recreation Department will be kept strictly confidential.
