Background Check

From AYSO Wiki

Check your email. You should have received an invite from Sterling Volunteers once you completed your volunteer application to submit a background check.

Please click on the link you received in the email to take you to the Sterling screen that has your information.

Enter the same email address, Date of Birth and Zip Code used during your volunteer registration then, click Continue.

Your information should now be validated. Create a username and password to continue submitting your background check and to log back into Sterling for future uses then, click Create Account. (You may want to use the same username and password you used for your Sports Connect account for easy remembering but, it’s your preference)

Now begin Step 1 of the 4-step background check by filling out the required information, matching what you entered on your volunteer application then, click Continue at the bottom of the page.

Step 1 of 4 – Fill in the required address information then, click Continue.

Step 2 of 4 – Check off the 4 boxes and enter your First Name and Last Name then, click Continue.

Step 3 of 4 (cont.) – Answer the self-disclosure question with the same answer used on the registration application then, click Continue.

Step 4 of 4 – Confirm personal info is correct then, check the box “The Information above is correct” or click Go Back & Edit. If your region is paying for volunteer background checks, you will be given the option to contribute up to $25.00 or you may choose “Not at the time”. It may look like you are required to pay $25.00 but it is optional. Please review the screen carefully.
