Volunteer coach compliance is paramount to sports safety and athlete well-being. Volunteer coach compliance requirements differ among organizations but typically include training, education, and screening necessary for a youth coach via background checks. In theory, it might seem like a no-brainer - to protect athletes and stay compliant - but many organizations are falling short. It can require significant time, staff, and oversight to ensure that organizations maintain up-to-date training and complete the proper requirements.
