All coaches and volunteers will be required to obtain clearances every 36 months. Volunteers are required to obtain updated clearances as follows:
• Within 36 months of the date of the most recent certification;
• By July 1, 2015 if their clearance is older than 36 months; or
• By July 1, 2015 if they have not received a clearance because they previously were not required to obtain clearances.
