Welcome to the Nazareth Soccer Club

Volunteer Information

Nazareth Soccer Club offers successful programs thanks to the dedicated volunteers we have.  Volunteers can perform a wide range of functions, it all depends on how involved you want to be.  The majority of NSC volunteers are coaches for our Micro and Classic Teams, but we also have dedicated individuals that help with field maintenance, team parents, help organize the Annual Spring Picnic, and participate in a Board positions.

Interested in volunteering? Please contact NSC (info@nazarethsoccer.org) for more information on how you can get involved.

This year, NSC is required to collect additional information. Recently, 23 pieces of legislation were enacted, changing how Pennsylvania responds to child abuse. These changes significantly impact the reporting, investigation, assessment, prosecution and judicial handling of child abuse and neglect cases.

All volunteers, whether it's for NSC, Nazareth School District or other organizations where you volunteer and interact with children will be required to obtain a clearance.

Which clearances are needed?

All prospective volunteers must obtain the following clearances:
  • Report of criminal history from the Pennsylvania State Police (PSP); and 
  • Child Abuse History Clearance from the Department of Human Services (Child Abuse).
Additionally, a fingerprint based federal criminal history (FBI) submitted through the Pennsylvania State Police or its authorized agent is not required if:
  • The position the volunteer is applying for is unpaid; and
  • The volunteer has been a Pennsylvania resident continuously for the past 10 years.

If you fall under the following circumstance you do not need to complete the FBI Criminal Back Ground Check, you can complete the Act 153 Volunteer Affidavit.  
Volunteers who are not required to obtain the FBI Clearance because they are applying for an unpaid position and have been a continuous resident of Pennsylvania for the past 10 years must swear or affirm in writing that they are not disqualified from service based upon a conviction of an offense under §6344. Please have the waiver notarized.  

For more information on the new requirements, please visit http://keepkidssafe.pa.gov/index.htm.

Clearances can be obtained from the following organizations:

**As of July 26, 2015 the State Police and Child Abuse Clearances are being offered at no cost to volunteers.**

        NOTE: Choose “Volunteer” from the option list on the form. 

Please mail a copy of your clearances/affidavit to:

 Jennifer Bennet, NSC Registrar, PO BOX 614, Nazareth, PA  18064

For those that volunteer to coach, NSC will reimburse* you the cost of the clearance as a THANK YOU for your time and effort in making NSC a success.
*Reimbursement will be in the form of a coupon code (valued at the clearance completed)  that can be used toward your next registration with NSC.
