ALL Coaches & Volunteers
For more information on the BCJSA Background policy, please visit our website at www.bcjsa.com.
The information is listed under Documents on the left column.
Note that BCJSA is seeking to protect the most vulnerable group of people within our community – our children. As such, our standard of review of these matters is higher than a court of law finding an individual guilty or not guilty by the “beyond a reasonable doubt” standard.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at President@bcjsa.com
