The U.S. All Star Federation is committed to promoting a safe environment within our All Star member organizations and we have implemented various measures to safeguard our athletes. One such measure is the mandatory background screening for individuals who are 18 years of age and above and are present in the warm-up or backstage areas at USASF sanctioned competitions in a given year. This requirement applies to club owners, coaches, volunteers, non-coaching staff, and adult athlete members associated with a club. By implementing this requirement, we aim to prioritize the safety and well-being of all participants involved.
We are proud to collaborate with JDP as our trusted partner for conducting background screenings of our adult members. JDP facilitates a comprehensive screening program using their full-service product, and the results are presented in a simple red light/green light determination report based on criteria specified by the USASF. Only individuals who receive green light determinations and complete all other membership requirements are eligible for membership.
*Adult Athletes: athletes 18 years of age and above and those who will turn 18 on or before May 31 of the current membership term.
The U.S. All Star Federation has elected to implement the same comprehensive screening that the United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee requires all National Governing Bodies to follow for members involved with minor athletes. JDP is named as a screening provider under the USPOC screening policy to fulfill its screening program.

The USASF screening program includes:
JDP handles ALL aspects of the screening process from start to finish saving time and money and helping to protect athletes and youth sports organizations with thorough background screenings.
Screenings are initiated as follows:
Background screenings completed by JDP will yield two possible outcomes:
COACHES, CLUB OWNERS and PERSONNEL: the cost of the JDP domestic background screening is covered by the USASF membership registration/renewal fee ($75).
ADULT ATHLETES: The fee for each JDP domestic background screening is $18. This is in addition to the USASF membership registration/renewal fee ($49).
The purpose of the club account is so USASF member clubs with adult participants (i.e employees or volunteers with regular contact or authority over minor athletes who are NOT members of the USASF) may run background screenings on these individuals using the same parameters as that of USASF members. USASF members must complete their background screenings directly through their individual USASF member profiles.
How to set up your club account through JDP
COACHES, CLUB OWNERS and ADULT ATHLETES (those who are 18 years of age and above or will turn 18 on or before May 31, 2024)
PERSONNEL (non-coaching adults who interact with minors)
NOTE: Only the club administrator may create, renew and pay for personnel membership accounts through the club account portal. Once paid through the club account portal, the personnel applicant may log in and begin the background screening process and other membership requirements.
The initial background screening will be valid for a one-year single membership expiring on May 31 of the current competition season. Once an initial background check is completed by JDP, each membership renewal will require a rescreen of the individual covering the time since the last background check.
