Coach's Clearance Links

Pennsylvania Child Welfare Information Solution
Access To Criminal History


For the safety and well being of the kids, WVRAA requires all coaches and volunteers to complete the PA Child Welfare and PA Criminal History clearances before they begin coaching and mentoring children. Going even further, WVRAA has also instituted a Code of Ethics for both Coaches and Parents.  These exist to ensure a safe and healthy environment for the kids, as well as ensuring the kids have the tools and adult mentors needed to achieve the objectives of the programs.  These Codes of Ethics can be viewed below.



I will be on time for all practices and games.

I will refrain from the use of alcohol prior to any game or practice.

Iwill refrain from the use of tobacco during practice or games.

I will be as fair as possible in giving playing time to all players.

I will do my best to teach the fundamentals of the game.

I will set reasonable expectations for each player and for the season.

I will teach players the values of winning and losing.

I will be open to ideas or help.

I will never swear or yell at any member of my team, the opposing team, umpires, or fans. Any confrontation will be handled in a quiet, respectful, and individual manner.

I will always remember I am coaching children in a game that is supposed to be fun.
