   c.  PA Resident Affidavit OR FBI:

When you register to coach, the PA resident Affidavit information is stated in our process. If you check the box YOU are confirming that you have been a Resident for 10 years or more. 


OR, FBI criminal clearance with fingerprint submission is required if you haven’t been a PA resident for at least the last 10 years. There is a fee for this that you as the volunteer must pay and it is good for three years. We will need a copy of the certificate when you receive it.


Information on law:




If your job or other volunteer services has already required the above clearances, we will accept copies of same. We still need the “SI PLay” registration to be current in our volunteer registration.
