Background Checks
Background Check Policy Co-Sponsored Youth Organizations

Chesterfield County Board of Supervisors approved the National Background Check for those individuals associated with cosponsored youth leagues (i.e. coaches, board members, etc). All NEW coaches will be required to go through the new background check process, which includes fingerprinting. All approved individuals will be sent a national background check card with an expiration date of three years. Current background check cardholders may be selected for random background checks.

Background Check Policy

Background Check Policy for Chesterfield County Parks and Recreation Co-Sponsored Youth Organizations 

Policy Changes  

  • Felony violation relating to drug distribution is now a barrier crime.
  • Felony violation of drug possession has changed from within five (5) years to eight (8) years.

Procedural Changes (effective January 2005) 

All new coaches will be required to go through the new national background check which will require coaches to submit in person a new application form, show a picture ID and be fingerprinted.

  • Existing coaching card holders who received their cards prior to January 2005 will start to receive a letter in the mail stating that they have been randomly selected to go through the fingerprint process to receive a current National Background Check coaching card. If you receive this letter, you have 60 days to attend a background session. Existing coaching cardholders should NOT come to be fingerprinted at a background check session until they receive the renewal letter in the mail.
