Play SAFE Youth Protection Program and Background Screening Policy

Overview

Approved by CYB Board of Directors

September 23, 2013

Claremont Youth Basketball (CYB) seeks to ensure the safety of all participants, and as such, CYB has implemented a Play SAFE Youth Protection Program and Background Screening Policy to ensure a safe environment for the individuals participating in its programs. The Play SAFE Program includes CYB’s policies, procedures, and guidelines related to the prevention and mitigation of abuse, molestation, or sexual misconduct, and the rejection of any volunteer who has been found responsible for child abuse, molestation, or other sexual misconduct.

 

The Play SAFE Youth Protection Program includes the following elements:

  • That all CYB volunteers or other representatives complete a Play SAFE application process;

  • That all CYB volunteers or other representatives review and acknowledge CYB’s:

    • Play SAFE Youth Protection Program and Background Screening Policy;

    • Play SAFE Youth Protection Code of Conduct;

    • Play SAFE Youth Protection Policies and Procedures for CYB Directors, Commissioners, Head Coaches, and Assistant Coaches; and,

  • That all CYB volunteers or other representatives complete a criminal background screening process.

 

CYB believes that the incorporation of criminal background screening process as part of its Play SAFE Program is a legitimate business necessity to further its mission.  

 

Criminal background screenings have been implemented by CYB in order to:

  1.  Ensure a safe, secure and fun environment for participants to compete and continue to develop and enhance their skills.

  2. Provide parents and legal guardians with a sense of security for their children.

  3. Prevent individuals with ill intentions from becoming involved with its programming. 

 

Background screening is designed as a preventative measure. It is not a guarantee against incidents of inappropriate behavior or criminal activity. CYB encourages parents and legal guardians to play an active role in their child’s development, both on and off the court, to ensure their well-being.
