Professional Background Check

Criminal Background Check

In keeping with the standards set by the United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee, as well as many youth sports organizations, schools and recreational programs in America today, USA Gymnastics requires criminal background check screening to help ensure a safe and secure environment for our members and additional gymnastics participants.

USA Gymnastics mandates criminal background screening on all USA Gymnastics Professional and Instructor members over the age of 18. This process also includes all USA Gymnastics employees and all members of our Board of Directors.

USA Gymnastics conducts the criminal background screening program in partnership with the National Center for Safety Initiatives (NCSI). Through NCSI, all professional/instructor members complete a criminal background check that screens for previous criminal behavior which may be inappropriate for contact with children. Screening covers criminal background, sex offender registry and identity verification.
