Cyprus Track XC, Inc. is dedicated to ensuring the safety of all athletes, parents, and coaches. Our organization requires that members pass the established USA T&F program as outlined below.
USA Track & Field Coach Background Check Program
USA Track & Field has implemented a criminal background screening program on coaches and volunteers of youth clubs.
Background Checks have been implemented by USATF to:
- Promote a safe, nurturing, and supportive athletic environment in which youth athletes can pursue their athletic goals;
- Provide an environment where parents can feel good about allowing their child to participate in the sport of track and field.
- Maintain the sport of track and field as a hostile environment for those who would seek to harm youth athletes
Please note that this screening is not intended to serve as a pre-employment background-screening program, nor can screening guarantee that incidents of abuse by coaches/volunteers will not occur. Background screening is designed as a preventative risk management tool, but does not ensure inappropriate behavior will not occur.
