Additionally, coaches are required to complete Concussion in Sports Training.  All heads coaches and assistant coaches are REQUIRED to complete concussion training and produce a Certificate of Completion to their League Director.  The free online training will require you to Register for an account ( and select the "Concussion in Sports" course.  Note that there is a TEST at the end of the online course.  Please be advised that it will take approximately 45 minutes for you to complete.  If you have previously completed concussion training for another youth sports program and can produce a Certificate of Completion, we can accept that as evidence of your compliance with State of Maryland law.  We also have records if you successfully completed the training as a coach last year.

Background Screening Policy

Background Screening Policy
Adopted April 07, 2019

It is the intent of this policy to establish certain guidelines wherein the Savage Boys & Girls Club (hereinafter referred to as “SBGC”) and its affiliated programs can seek to protect our program participants by investigating the background of all volunteers (hereinafter referred to as “candidates”) who will be involved in SBGC approved programs.

A. Criminal background screenings are conducted by an outside third party who specializes in such work.

B. Any person who has been found guilty, pled guilty; or pled no contest, regardless of adjudication, or has a pending charge pertaining to, any of the disqualifying offenses listed in this policy will be immediately disqualified from all volunteer positions with SBGC. SBGC also reserves the right to disqualify a person for any crime that would be considered a potential risk to children and/or vulnerable populations. A candidate who willfully fails to comply with this background screening policy shall be automatically disqualified.

C. This policy will apply to all SBGC volunteers to include, but not limited to, head and assistant coaches participating in sanctioned SBGC leagues and programs. If there is any doubt as to who should be screened, the general rule is Board members, head and assistant coaches and commissioners. Each volunteer will be screened every 12 months for as long as he or she continues participating in SBGC approved programs.

The criminal background screening is mandatory, there are no exceptions.

All candidates must submit a background screening application. This screening is executed directly, through NCSI - National Center for Safety Initiatives, and the secure URL at which candidates can execute their SBGC background check is:

The cost associated with these background screenings will be paid for by SBGC.
If the third-party contractor reports any “fail” grades to SBGC, SBGC shall notify the candidate that he or she is disqualified for their desired position. SBGC will also notify the appropriate sports Director if their candidate is disqualified. Upon request, the candidate will receive a copy of the background check from the third-party contractor.

If a candidate’s background check includes a charge set forth on the list of disqualifiers below, SBGC shall immediately disqualify a person from their position. There shall be no appeal of a decision to disqualify a candidate, if the candidate’s relevant criminal history is accurate; all decisions are final.

If a candidate wishes to dispute the content of the profile report, the candidate shall contact the third party responsible for conducting the background check by calling the telephone number listed on the report. The candidate is responsible for providing any or all documentation to support his or her claim.

If a candidate (1) has been convicted of, (2) has a charge pending against him or her in which it is alleged that he or she has committed any of the following crimes, or (3) has a record of a conviction of an equivalent offense in another state, the candidate will be disqualified from the position with any program approved by SBGC.
