The USATT Board had a teleconference last night. It was schedule for 7:00-8:20PM, but I think went on until after 9:45PM. There were three main items on the agenda, which I list as separate items, designated with a "=>". There was also a fourth, sort of, "New Business."
Here's the USATT page on this which actually went up a few years ago. (Click on the three "Attachments" at the bottom for more info.) Basically, it means that a huge number of people are going to have to get background checks, and do so every two years. These include (and I'm copying this from the USATT page):
- USATT Certified Coaches
- USATT Board Members
- USATT Staff
- USATT Committee Chairs and Committee members
- Affiliated Club Owners and Operators
- Referees and Umpires
- Tournament Directors and Organizers
- Anyone else who has access to minors within USATT sanctioned competition or club activity.
