RASA Background Check Procedure

RASA Background Check Procedure

RASA has instituted the following background check procedure for all adults volunteering as coaches, assistant coaches, and for any activity that requires direct and routine contact with children participating in a RASA activity. The following three (3) items are required for all RASA volunteers:

1.    Pennsylvania State Police Criminal History Record:  This document can be obtained online at https://epatch.pa.gov/home

2.    Pennsylvania Child Abuse History Clearance:  This document can be obtained online at https://www.compass.state.pa.us/CWIS/Public/Home

3.    A copy of your Driver’s License (or another State / Federal ID with picture) showing your current address (must match the address on both of your background checks)

These background checks are currently offered online for free. Criminal History and Child Abuse records are considered valid for 5 years.  However, RASA may request a copy of any / all of these three (3) items (State Criminal, PA Child Abuse Clearance, State Identification) from you at any time.  

All volunteers must submit the three (3) documents before any RASA activities commence.

Please send the forms to RASA
