All athletic volunteer coaches in Northshore are required to complete an online volunteer application for the 2022-23 school year, even if they submitted a volunteer application last year. It is also important to note that all volunteers will be expected to renew their volunteer application annually.
· Step One - read the Northshore School District Volunteer Orientation.
· Step Two - complete a background check (level 2) through Safe Visitor Solutions. There is a $12.95 cost to the volunteer to process this background check. In some cases, additional fees may be requested to obtain information from certain jurisdictions. If this cost creates a hardship that will prevent you from volunteering your time, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. After your first year of volunteering, you will be asked to complete a free Level 1 background check at your yearly renewal.*
**Current NSD employees who wish to volunteer as an athletic coach and need Level 2 clearance, please complete the following NSD Employee Level 2 Clearance Request form. Once Partnerships has received the request, they will verify the applicant’s active employment with HR, and make a note in their Safe Visitor profile that they have been cleared as a Level 2 through our verification process.
· Step Three - Make sure to complete Athletic Volunteer Interest Form. Upon completion of this form, the athletic director at your school of choice will be notified of your interest and you will be contacted if a volunteer opportunity becomes available. All gym and sports volunteers must be current on CPR, First Aid, Sudden Cardiac Arrest and Concussion Courses.
*A criminal conviction will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis and does not necessarily disqualify an applicant from volunteering.
