All Alexander Soccer Club coaches, referees and officers have to complete a background check. The Athens County Sheriff’s Office will do background checks for the Club. The Club will pay the cost ($4.00). You need to complete this PDF and provide a copy of your driver’s license. You can give the documents to me or another club officer. We can take all the documents to the Sheriff's Office and we will get the background checks back directly. If you take the paperwork to the Sheriff's Office, you will need to give us the background check they give you. If you want the Club to reimburse you, get a receipt so we have it for our financial records.
Alexander Soccer Club will follow the Ohio South Risk Management (background check) information. We will follow these guidelines for convictions that will disqualify someone from coaching or refereeing games. The list starts on page two of the attached PDF. This is part of Ohio South's by laws and that is why it's pages 70 to 72. Ohio is divided in to two governing organizations for youth soccer in Ohio. We are in Ohio South's area.
Let me know if you need a printed copy of the local background check PDF or a way to make a copy of your driver’s license. We will also have copies at the in person registration and the coaches meeting.
Everyone has to complete the form before coaching or referring.
Let me or any of the officers know if you have questions or concerns. Brian
