Partner with the leaders in youth safety

Together with the National Center for Safety Initiatives (NCSI), we’re on a mission to make youth sports safe for every participant with thorough background checks.

We’ve partnered with NCSI to bring their unmatched youth sports background checks right into SportsEngine HQ backed by expert guidance and support.

Run industry-leading background checks

NCSI background checks search more than twice the number of records that other background screening providers search—uncovering pivotal information other screenings may miss—including two independent multi-jurisdictional searches, containing over 800 million records.


Get clear, fast results

NCSI screens individuals based on your needs and criteria, then flags the information you need to see to make an informed decision—all in as little as two days.

Trusted by sports leaders

We wanted to be thorough, so we used multiple background screening services and you found records that no one else could - even at the local level. Thanks to you, we have the peace of mind that our kids are safe every time they come to play. That alone is worth the cost.

NCSI has made running background checks very simple and inexpensive. Just enter the client's information online and in a couple of days, you are notified via email that the background check is completed.

At the end of the day, if we’re going to put attention on making sure that the fields are in great shape, and that the sports equipment is adequate, then we should put that same effort into making sure that the volunteers who work with our kids are of the highest standard. The children playing the game - they are our greatest asset. We want to do everything we can to make sure that they are safe.

I really think NCSI has a great system and an easy-to-follow program that allows you to lessen liability, but more important protect your citizens.
