following the existing procedure if you would rather, but let us compare the
By registering directly online, you will pay by credit
card a fee of $28.00 directly to ACXIOM. This will generate your request
electronically and will enable you to receive a copy of your screening and proof
that you have been screened and approved or denied by return email directly to
you. You will be able to print off a copy of your screening so that you
can use it for either your travel or high school team to show proof that you
have been screened. This screening is also acceptable to outside firms for
you to use outside of USA Hockey if you need to. To register for
screening, go online to
www.mybackgroundreport.com and use partner code USAH1133. On
the first page, choose "I'm a new user" to set up your account.
We encourage everyone to register online as it is cheaper
for you as well as your being able to receive reports back to you. This is
a much more efficient way to registering as well as a quicker way of getting
In an effort to make this as simple as possible, the following
are guidelines to use for screening all coaches and managers:
Who needs to be screened?
Any new coach/manager to your organization MUST be screened.
This is regardless of whether or not the coach/manager came from another
club last year. The question to ask yourself: Is this person new to
your organization this season? If the answer is yes, then they need
to be screened.
If the answer is no, then you need to check the file listed above to
see if your coach/manager is listed that they were previously screened
and on record as screened and if they are part of the “re-screening”
process. If they are not listed on our file, then you must send in a
screening application for that person as we have never received one.
How can you tell if any of your coaches/managers are
part of the 25% check?
Check the file above to see if any of your coaches/managers are listed
with the note: 25% check 2011-12 season, re-screening needed.
What if the coach/manager was not active last season
or is not listed?
Check the file to see if the coach/manager is listed. In comparing USA
Hockey’s database with ours, we have noted the coaches/managers
that we found to be inactive. Once a coach/manager has been found to
be inactive, they must be re-screened to become active. Any coaches
who have not responded to our 25% check or have been in-active, have
been dropped from the website screening database and must be re-screened.
