Help protect our swimmers in the youth sports programs

As you probably know by now, participating in summer league swimming is a great way for young people to build character and learn valuable life skills that carry on beyond the pool deck. Unfortunately, youth sports programs (including summer league swim programs) can also attract dangerous individuals in search of young victims to groom for future abuse. Because of the age and vulnerability of many summer league swimmers, it’s imperative that all swimmers are assured a safer and more secure environment-an environment with a reduced risk of physical, emotional, mental, or sexual harm.

For those reasons, regular background checks for summer league swim coaches, officials, volunteers, and staff at summer league swimming events are fast-becoming a requirement in many cities and states. If they’re not required today, they will be soon – and for good reason.

To start the process, please have you or your candidate click here to join Summer League Swimming to be eligible for our background check.

Did You Know There Are Over 1,200 Background Check Companies in the US?

It’s true! And many of those 1,200 companies offer low-quality background checks. These low-quality background checks have plagued the youth sports sector – a major factor in creating unsafe environments for children and youth on and off the pool deck.

At SLS, we want to do better so you can do better. So allow us to introduce you to our partner in creating a safer environment…

Sterling Volunteers
(Don’t let the name fool you-it’s not just for volunteers!)

To help improve the sport and change this trend, Summer League Swimming has formed a strategic partnership with Sterling Volunteers, an industry thought leader and trusted advisor in background screening.

Sterling Volunteers is the only background check platform tailored to the specific needs of youth sports organizations, and is designed to make background screening of SLS members faster, easier and less costly.
