In addition to conducting background checks on all individuals who are hired to work at local curling organizations and those who volunteer to work with children, clubs are encouraged to do a search in the U.S. Center for SafeSport’s Disciplinary Records Database.  Searches will provide clubs with information on people who have been recently banned or suspended from USA Curling and/or other Olympic sports. Please check with the Center directly to confirm whether an individual is the same as the person in the search, especially the name is common.
