New Background Check Procedure

Just a reminder to all the clubs to get their background checks done by May 1st.
Checks must be completed for coaches, administrators, and anyone who
spends alone-time with an athlete (i.e. chaperones). Background checks need to be completed annually and are good for a calendar year (January-December).

The service that we we're using is TClogiQ and it's available online
through the USATF website. There will be a cost of $8 per check, but
the Youth PNA will reimburse you/your club so hold on to your receipt.

Procedure for background check:

1) buy a USATF membership at
2) Go to to fill out the
background check.
3) Click "Criminal Background Check Program" (make sure your pop-up
screen blocker is off)
4) Click on "Begin Your Background Screen"
5) If you are a returning coach you must log-in to your account

Once you're done, you will receive confirmation via email from TClogiQ
within 24 hrs and your name will be listed on the USATF website
which is also accessible from our PNTF website.
