Coaching or Volunteering?

Volunteer Information – Background Check Requirements
County Background Check Website Update! A new background check website was implemented in Summer 2020. Any volunteer badge expiring March 31st, 2020 – Jun 30th, 2020 will have an extension through July 31st, 2020.

If you are volunteering in our program as a Coach, Assistant Coach or Team Parent you must register as a volunteer.  Make sure you register yourself at https://farc.siplay.com and select the Volunteer option.  There is no cost to register.

To start your background check, go to Carroll County’s custom application online submitting portal at https://carrollcountyrecreationandparks.quickapp.pro/positions and click the Apply button for Freedom Area.

  • All volunteers are required to abide by Carroll County Department of Recreation and Parks Code of Conduct
  • Volunteering is a privilege, not a right; volunteers serve at will and may be released at any time
  • All volunteers serving youth must be credentialed and wear their volunteer ID badge at the time of service
  • $3.00 replacement fee for volunteer ID badges

Volunteers 18 and older must complete the Carroll County background check. Carroll County Department of Recreation and Parks requires background checks for all Board Members, Head Coaches, Assistant Coaches and Team Parents involved in youth sports who are 18 and over. There is no cost to any volunteer for the background check.

For volunteers younger than 18, a legal guardian must complete the Minor Consent Volunteer Waiver Form (PDF).
