New Background Screening Criteria

Jan. 27, 2020, 4:19 p.m. (ET)

Effective January 1, 2020, the USOPC is requiring USA Judo (and ALL NGBs) to implement new background screening criteria. This requirement is in conjunction with the continued implementation and modification of SafeSport Policies in line with the Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Policy. These new screens include more robust search criteria as well as an automatic re-check at 12 months for each applicant. Screens will continue to be valid for two years from date of clearance. The cost for this upgraded search is $30.00.

For those members who have a current screen, you will be required to go through the upgraded process when your current screen expires after its two-year term. The process to apply for these screens has not changed.

To apply for a background screen, please log into your USA Judo profile, click on the Background tab on the left side.
