Recently one of our former coaches was arrested for a felony. He was not a coach for us this season. However, I feel it is a good time to state our policy on situations such as this.
It is our policy that if anyone involved with our organization is under investigation for a crime that would cause them to fail their background check with us, whether it is a coach or staff member, that person will be placed on administrative suspension immediately and may not return to their position until the investigation has been completed and they are found to be cleared of any wrongdoing. If the person is convicted, they will be terminated from our organization and will not be able to return as they would no longer be able to pass our background check.
We take this very seriously and have policies and procedures in place as well as background checks done for each coach and staff member to make sure that we are taking whatever steps we can to keep our players safe.
If you have any questions about this or anything else please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 352-552-8902.
