Positive Coaching Alliance and Sterling Volunteers are working together to promote safer coaching within youth sports. Joining Sterling Volunteers will help you:

  • Make More Informed Decisions: Background checks are NOT created equal – quality and consistency vary widely. Sterling Volunteers background checks are the most comprehensive and accurate available.
  • Achieve Peace of Mind with FREE Monthly Updating: Other checks are “one and done.” Sterling Volunteers provides updates, at no charge, for one year from the original date of the background check – helping you identify any new crimes that may have been committed.
  • Reduce Overall Costs: Give coaches the option to help preserve your budget by allowing (or requiring) coaches to pay for all or part of their screening – or asking for an optional contribution. Our clients report saving an average of 40% on screening thanks to volunteer contributions.
  • Remove Administrative Burdens: Sterling Volunteers’ first-class, easy-to-use screening platform allows you to manage all coaches with 3 easy ways to order background checks. Coaches can enter their own information online, you can enter individual coach information, or you can upload a list of coaches and send those coaches invitations with just a few clicks.
  • Keep Compliant: Sterling Volunteers’ secure and compliant background checks are housed in a completely secure environment and are fully FCRA compliant.
  • See The Full Picture: Sterling Volunteers’ advanced level background check includes local and national searches, a DOJ Sex Offender Registry search, current county/state of residence search, and FREE monthly monitoring for the first year to identify new criminal records.
