NFL Flag Official League


Central Mass Flag Worcester is committed to the safety of our participants.  All of our coaches and staff go through thorough background checks.  The Background Check program used by Central Mass Flag Worcester is outlined below: 

Background checks are REQUIRED for all Coaches and Staff.  The organization used by Central Mass Flag Worcester is CHECKR.

Central Mass Flag Worcester League Coordinators are vigilant in the protection of our youth.  Coach’s tee shirts and rosters are not given to coaches until a background check has been completed and passed. 

Background Checks have been implemented by Central Mass Flag Worcester for the purpose of: 

1.       Promoting a safe, nurturing, and supportive athletic environment in which youth athletes can pursue their athletic goals.

2.       Providing an environment where parents of children can feel good about allowing their child to participate in the sport of flag football.  Please note; this screening is not intended to serve as a profiling tool nor can screening guarantee that incidents of abuse by coaches will not occur.  Background screening is designed as a preventative risk management tool, but does not insure inappropriate behavior will not occur.

3.       Central Mass Flag Worcester has selected CHECKR as our national provider for background checks.  More information about CHECKER is available on their website at

 What Coaches can expect from a background check:

1.       We require any coach who has access or direct contact with youth athletes (under the age of 18) during scheduled practices or games to submit information for a background check and to review and acknowledge the Coaches Code of Conduct waiver

2.       Background checks will require an applicant’s full name, social security number and date of birth.

3.       Coaches will be screened for convictions of the following crimes:

·        Felony (best described as but not limited to, any crime punishable by confinement greater than one year)

·         Any crime involving force or threat of force against a person

·         Any crime in which sexual relations is an element, including “victimless” crimes of a sexual nature (including pornography)
