Clearances Information

Coaches clearances.  No one will be permitted to be on the practice facility or on field during game day without getting approved BCYFL Clearance Badge.  Follow Links below to gather the proper paperwork which is required to be submitted to the BCYFL for review and approval prior to the beginning of the season.  This is a timely process and the league has taken a no excuse, hard line to required submittal dates with no exceptions.

Which certifications are needed? 

All prospective volunteers must obtain the following certifications:

• Report of criminal history from the Pennsylvania State Police (PSP); and 
• Child Abuse History certification from the Department of Human Services(Child Abuse). 

Additionally, a fingerprint based federal criminal history (FBI) submitted through the Pennsylvania State Police or its authorized agent is NOT required as long as: 
• The position the volunteer is applying for is an unpaid position; AND
• The volunteer has been a resident of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania for the entirety of the previous 10 years. Volunteers who are not required to obtain the FBI  certification because they are applying for an unpaid position and have been a continuous resident of Pennsylvania for the past 10 years must swear or affirm in writing that they are not disqualified from service based upon a conviction of an offense under §6344.

Lastly, the Volunteer Affidavit must be printed, signed and notarized to complete the process.  See file link below to print a copy.  Lil Cougars will have a day where we will have a notary present to notarize all affidavits free of charge, however you must be present.  Or feel free to get them notarized where ever you'd like.
