Background Screening

All adults who need to complete a background screening for the 2020/2021 seasonal year will need to wait until the new process is launched in July.  Please check back for updates.


Background Screening

Ohio North is teaming up with Player's Health in partnership with the JDP to provide best in class background screening and ensure all adults interacting with youth athletes are playing by the rules. Player's Health will also help leagues and clubs take care of the off-the-field management of participant safety compliance, including, but not limited to, SafeSport training, concussion training and Lindsay’s Law.

Effective for the 2019/2020 seasonal year, Ohio North’s new Participant Safety program (formerly referred to as Risk Management), will require adults to complete their background screening (every two years) and applicable participant safety compliance (as required by state/federal laws and/or Ohio North policy) directly in Player's Health regardless of your current registration platform.

An adult is defined as all coaches, team managers, trainers, organization staff/employees, board members, referees and any other person age 18 or older who may have the opportunity to have direct and unmonitored access to children in your organization.  


If completed between It is valid through
July 1, 2019 - June 30, 2020 July 31, 2021
July 1, 2020 - June 30, 2021 July 31, 2022
July 1, 2021 - June 30, 2022 July 31, 2023

The cost is $20 per background screening, which will be payable online 1) by the adult requesting and completing the application, or 2) a code from your club/league.

Background screening results will typically be available to Ohio North in five (5) business day; however, the specific time frame varies based on the amount of time it takes counties and states to return results.
