Spring-Ford Youth Football and Cheer has partnered with National Center for Safety Initiatives for background screening of our coaches and volunteers. We have worked with National Center for Safety Initiatives to ensure that this process is convenient, secure and confidential. Please go to National Center for Safety Initiatives' web site to complete the background screening.
The results will be sent directly to one contact on the Spring-Ford Youth Football and Cheer Board of Directors. National Center for Safety Initiatives will contact you directly if there are any questions, problems or issues related to your specific information. An email address is required when completing the background check.
It is important when entering your name that you use your full legal name as written on your birth certificate or driver's license. Please also verify that your social security number is typed correctly. Using nicknames or failing to type a correct social security number may delay or invalidate your background check.

Spring-Ford Youth Football and Cheer, in cooperation with USA Football, is striving to make football a safer game. With the addition of a dedicated USA Football Representative, all coaches are required to attend training and practice drills associated with safer tackling procedures.
USA Football’s Football Certification is a step-by-step protocol to teach the core principles of the skills and sets a new standard in player safety. The program utilizes fundamentals through a series of drills to reinforce proper tackling mechanics and to teach players how to properly tackle with a focus on reducing helmet contact.
To begin in the certification process, please go to USA Football and create an account, choosing the appropriate group (flag or tackle/ contactless or contact) and age group. Once the certification is complete, please print or email the certificate. A printed version can be given to our USA Football Representative or a board member and an emailed certificate can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
