Criminal Background Check and "Protecting God's Children"

All volunteers must have on file a BCI background check and must attend "Protecting God's Children" no matter how much or how little contact they have with children or youth, and no matter what time of the day or night they volunteer.

In addition to the above requirements all volunteer coaching staff must obtain a Coaching Permit through the Ohio Department of Education. The information to apply for a Coaching Permit is found through the ODE website.
