Parks and Recreation : Volunteer Background Screening
On August 3, 2009 Shelby City Council adopted a comprehensive Volunteer Background Screening Policy for all Parks and Recreation volunteer youth sports coaches as well as other volunteers working with vulnerable populations. The policy has very clear disqualifying factors that will provide assurances to players and parents their coaches do not have a criminal background. This screening policy along with our mandatory National Alliance of Youth Sports Coach's Training Program are to ensure that all participants are in the care of trained coaches and in a safe environment.
