Coaches Applications and Background Check Information
The Tift County Recreation Department implemented a Coach / Volunteer Background Check process in 1995. Coaches and Volunteers must complete and pass a Background Check prior to coaching or assisting with any Recreation Team/Activity. Locally we utilize the Local Law Enforcement to run our background checks. Sometimes the public asks if there is another group that can run the background checks that would be accepted by the Tift County Recreation Department. Since those discussions we have secured an online Coach / Volunteer Pay Background Check Provider - Protect Youth Sports that performs acceptable Background Checks.
