Upcoming changes to the PGCBGC Background check procedures:

Staring March 15th, 2019, the PGCBGC background check will now be processed through our Sports Engine website.

The new background check will still be facilitated by NCSI and their partner Sports Engine and will be good for the standard 2-year period. 

The cost has decreased to $20.00 per background registrant.

2019 Abuse Prevention Training

Also new for 2019 PGCBGC has adopted a new "Abuse Prevention and Training" (APT) course mandated by the federal government for all youth volunteer organizations.

The APT course will be coupled with the 2019 Background check at an additional cost of $5 per registrant, and also will be good for the 2-year period.

Cost for the APT course only will be $5.00 per registrant.

 

If your current 2018 PGCBGC background check is valid and you only need to take the APT course for the 2019 sports season.  You can access this course separately in the links below
