Complete a background check

Complete a background check

Every adult volunteer is required by AYSO to complete a background check through Sterling Volunteers.

Be on the lookout for an separate email from Sterling Volunteers, you will need to create an account with them as well.
After registering via that email, your volunteer account HERE should be active within 24 hours.
If you don't see an email from them, please check your spam folder.

Here is current AYSO Live Scan policy and the text of California AB 506.
The key words here are "regular volunteer" - but it is recommended that every volunteer completes the process.

Check with your DD or RRA to see if they have any Live Scan codes available to help defray any expense.
