HVAA depends on volunteer coaches to assist with the running of our sports. With each season, we seek motivated, conscientious volunteers to assist us with the task of coaching our players. The success of the leagues depends on our volunteer coaches and assistants.

  • FBI BACKGROUND FINGERPRINT CHECK (Only if you have lived outside of PA in the last 10 years)

2. Once you have the clearances in PDF form, you can take the steps to upload them.


We are using a new service to monitor and track our coach clearances. It takes 5 minutes and is mandatory. Make sure you have the PDFs are in separate files on the computer you are using before you start. Go here:

Click on: Giant Green Button "Start Background Check"

Enter Organization Code: hvaa

Follow the steps.

If there are any issues or questions with uploading your clearances, please contact Background Manager directly. You can connect with them online through their "Contact Us" webpage here: or contact them via phone Monday through Friday, from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM, at 1-877-643-0047. 

I know it seems like a lot, but it really takes very little time to comply with everything and the clearances are good for 5 years.
