Background Checks Program

The USAIGC REQUIRES a 100% Mandatory Employee Background Check for ALL EMPLOYEES & CLUB OWNERS 18 years and older.  If you have a current background check on file you will simply verify your information and not be required to process a background check.

This process is the Club Owners responsibility. They must do their due diligence and provide their parents, clients, children, staff members and coaches the safest environment possible.

The USAIGC requires each Club Owner(s) to provide the USAIGC verification online form that includes the names of all Club Owners and their entire Staff 18 years and older paid or non-paid that work with their students and team members. This becomes a legal document and is done every two years from the Club expiration date. Clubs that successfully complete this mandatory requirement are designated on our Club Directory Page with the Clubs Background expiration date.  

The USAIGC will post the names of all Club Owners & Coaches on our website for Competition Directors to check. If a name is not listed on this page the individual may not step foot onto the Competition Floor.

WE as an Association have set the bar higher on safeguarding our student population. USAIGC Clubs are safer than other Gymnastic Clubs who do not background check every employee including owners and administrative staff. The USAIGC provides its Club Owners the most thorough and inexpensive background checks available. We accept no rebate from SportsEngine except protection for our Club Owners and their gymnasts!

USAIGC POLICY: The USAIGC has established standards for hiring and screening applicants and volunteers. The USAIGC Membership supports the 100% Background Check because we have a professional and moral responsibility to provide a safest environment possible for our students to grow and develop in as well as a legal responsibility.

For Club Owners, a 100% Employee Background Check provides a small "peace of mind" in knowing you have done everything possible (due diligence), in checking ALL employees. If you do not, YOU, the owner and Club will be held legally liable for abuse or sexual misconduct, which occurs in your facility. Recent reports indicate that sexual abuse claims have increased over 200% in the last several years. Background screening has become a responsible way to manage risk in an increasingly difficult environment. Consequently, we have put into motion a process to help identify and eliminate those who pose a threat to our young people.
