My profile shows that I am invited to join a club and is asking me to accept or deny the request. What does this mean?
This means that your club administrator has sent you a specific invite to join the club vs. you requesting to add yourself. Click ACCEPT if you wish to associate with this club. If you are unfamiliar with the club shown, it is likely the invite was sent in error as some coaches have similar names. In this case, click DENY.
I am a coach and also an athlete - do I need separate memberships?
Yes. You will need to have two separate memberships under two different email addresses in the USASF system. Membership fees must be paid and abuse prevention education must be completed in each account. Your background check should be completed through your coach profile (included in the membership fee) and then shared at no added cost to your athlete profile.
How do I complete my coach background check?
Log in to your COACH profile. From the DASHBOARD, click START BACKGROUND CHECK. Follow the prompts to complete and submit. The all-inclusive coach membership fee covers the cost of the screening.
How do I share my background check?
