Background Checks
Process for screening of volunteers has changed, no longer fingerprint based, but social security number based.     Anyone fingerprinted since August 2011 will be “grandfathered” in; all coaches fingerprinted prior to that must submit to a new criminal background check and will have to do so every five years ($25 each time).
Go to   www.virtus.org. create an account and follow directions.
Concussion certification
The required National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) online Concussion Course in response to Ohio House Bill 143 took effect in April 2013.  This course remains current for three years from the date you view the video, so re-certifying coaches may be required to view it again depending on when they initially viewed it.  New coaches may take this online course by visiting https://nfhslearn.com/courses/61037/concussion-in-sports and following the attached instructions.  Coaches must then provide CYO with a copy of the Certificate of Completion – this must be done electronically to CYO@toledodiocese.org.  This Concussion Course will NOT be included in certification classes, so coaches must complete this 30 minute course on their own time.
