California Assembly Bill 230 (Stats 2013) – Adult Criminal Background Checks
In accordance to California Assembly Bill 230 (Stats 2013), Business and Professions Code 18900., below is information regarding our Background Check Policy for adults who are rostered on teams and allowed to participate in our soccer program.
Any adult who is rostered on one of our soccer teams is required to have an approved background check, conducted by the California Department of Justice, which reports criminal history, and subsequent arrests in the State of California.
All California Department of Justice criminal history reports are assessed by our organization based on the following criteria:
- If the California Department of Justice (DOJ) reports to us no criminal history – conviction or arrest report – the adult is cleared – or is PASSED – to participate in our program.
- If the DOJ reports to us any crimes of violence, crimes against children, sex crimes, or possession of an illegal substance for intent to sell, the adult is DENIED and cannot participate in our program.
- If the DOJ reports to us an arrest report concerning crimes of violence, crimes against children, sex crimes, or possession of an illegal substance for intent to sell, the adult is put on SUSPENSION until the case is resolved and reported. Upon resolution of the case, a PASS or DENIED decision will be determined by our organization.
- Any other information reported back from the DOJ, not fitting the absolute criteria outlined above, will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
