Every JVA member and all adults listed on rosters at JVA insured events, must complete the Background Screen and APS training.

    • A Club will not allow any individual who refuses to consent to a background screen to participate in any club activities. The Junior Club will immediately remove from any involvement with the club an individual who receives a negative background screening report.
