USA Curling

The USCA has implemented a screening program through the National Center for Safety Initiatives (NCSI) in order to prevent known offenders from being placed in a position of authority in events or programs sponsored by the organization. Annual background checks are required of individuals the USCA formally authorizes, approves, or appoints to a position of authority over, or to have frequent contact with, athletes. This includes, but is not necessarily limited to, the following individuals:

  • All members of the USA Curling Coaches Association
  • The chair of the organizing committee, chief umpire, and deputy chief umpire for the USCA Junior National Championship
  • All Certified Course Conductors in the USCA Instructor program
  • All volunteers for junior camps and any other junior program receiving financial or administrative support from the USCA
  • All USA Curling employees and board members

Members of the USA Curling Coaches Association should use the self-pay codes for background checks conducted through NCSI. Click here for more information. Background check registration information for other groups can be obtained from USA Curling Growth & Development Manager, Kim Nawyn (kim.nawyn@usacurl.org), and/or Event Services Manager, Dawn Leurquin (dawn.leurquin@usacurl.org).
