The policy of the Diocese of St Petersburg requires a Covered Volunteer Application and a background screening for all covered volunteers in Catholic Youth Sports. A covered volunteer is an individual who will have the care, responsibility, and or supervision of a child or youth or unsupervised access to vulnerable adults. Covered volunteer positions are Coaches, Assistant Coaches, and Referees. Because you will be volunteering for Catholic Youth Sports and working with young people, we also require some basic information about you, which assures the best possible program and safety for all.
