This memo will provide a brief overview to further clarify the
requirements for compliance with the new child protection laws in
Pennsylvania. Each member organization should familiarize themselves
with the information on these matters provided by the Commonwealth of
Pennsylvania. The best resource is the website they created, www.keepkidssafe.pa.gov
Volunteers requiring clearances are those “acting in lieu of a
parent” or having direct contact where they provide care, supervision,
guidance or control of children or have routine interaction with

unpaid position as a volunteer responsible for the welfare of a child
and having direct contact with children, must have clearances that
- PA Child Abuse History clearance ($10)
- PA State Police Criminal Records Check ($10)
- An FBI Criminal Background Check if you have not been a
continuous resident of Pennsylvania for 10 years ($27.50)
- Volunteers not requiring an FBI check, and have been a continuous
resident of PA for the last ten years, must swear or affirm in writing
that they have no other convictions that would disqualify them.
- Clearances are required prior to the commencement of service.
- Volunteers between the ages of 14-17 are NOT required to have
clearances. Adults (18 and up) who only volunteer one time, are
NOT required to have clearances.
- Each organization must keep records of volunteer/employee clearances
- All adults (within the context of the new laws) are “mandatory
reporters.” Volunteers are not required to have child abuse training or
certification, although it is recommended.
- Organizations may choose to pay for their volunteers to complete the
background checks. Organizations may set up a business account
through the Child Welfare Information Solution or by contacting the PA
- The clearances are good for 36 months. They are portable and
may be used with other organizations.
- Volunteers who do not reside in PA have a 30 day provisional status,
so long as they provide clearances from the state or country where they
reside. Longer than 30 days requires the clearances stated above.
- Employees, including independent contractors, must have all three

- Referees, trainers, camp staff etc… would be considered as
employees in this context.
At present, the Child Abuse History Clearance may take 14 days for
volunteers. The State Police records check is, or should be,
instantaneous. Please plan accordingly.
We will continue to refine our state risk management policy as the laws
and compliance continues to evolve. Our current standards for
disqualification will remain in accordance with US Youth Soccer and US
Soccer policy: conviction of a felony, crime of violence or a criminal
offense against a person. The state association reserves the right
to institute stricter guidelines and additional
All organizations will be required to affirm their compliance with
these laws. For travel programs, all adults who seek to be placed on
a roster will continue to register themselves through our risk management
portal. Adults who have not obtained their clearances will not be
placed on a roster.
We will continue to work with members of the state legislature to
refine the laws and procedures to reduce unintended consequences and
enhance the safety of our children. We recommend that you visit with
your local state representative as well. If you have further
questions, we will assist as best we can but will also refer you to the
appropriate authorities. Again, for more in depth information,
please visit www.keepkidssafe.pa.gov.
Thank you for your understanding,
