The minimum penalty shall be suspension of all members of the offending club/entity until background screening and enforcement requirements are met. Additional measures may include financial penalties and/or extended suspensions against disqualified individuals and the junior club.
Who Needs to Complete a Background Screening/APS Training?
All individuals, 18 years of age or older, involved in any capacity with a JVA member club or JVA insured event must be screened:
Trainers who register, affiliate and/or participate with a junior volleyball club or team.
Any official 18 or older who intends to work a junior sanctioned event will also be screened (with the exception of a junior player).
A background screen will not be required for those individuals who are classified only as junior players. Clubs that register junior players as coaches will ensure that those coaches are screened upon reaching the age of 18 years old.
