Background Check screening is completed during the purchase or renewal process for your US Lacrosse Membership.
Instructions for US Lacrosse Background Check:
Coach will join or renew as usual. Initiate the background screening after you purchase or renew (and while still logged into uslacrosse.org) by navigating to the Background Check link located under the QUICK LINKS on the right side of the member's profile page.
Coach will be prompted to complete the background screening in the join/renew confirmation email -- please note that you will need your USL member ID# to enter when following the link from this confirmation email OR you can just log back into uslacrosse.org and navigate to the background check page.
The day you establish or renew your membership is called 'Day Zero.' You then have 10 days to initiate the background check process. You will get an email detailing this as part of your membership confirmation process. Reminder emails will go out every day. On Day 11, if you have not begun the background screening, you will receive one final email from US Lacrosse reminding you to initiate the background screening process.
The Day 11 email will be the trigger to convert your membership from COACH to FAN. This means you no longer have COACH membership status and therefore lose insurance coverage and will not be allowed to coach.
After Day 11, you can complete the background check by calling or emailing US Lacrosse Member Experience team. They will send you a link to kick start or re-initiate the process. It is YOUR responsibility to follow up with US Lacrosse to convert your membership back from FAN to COACH.
