Additional Cal South Requirements:
KIDSAFE Risk Management Program (For Legal Adults Only)
If you are 18 years old or older you will need to adhere to our KIDSAFE Risk Management Program. All legal adults must have their fingerprints cleared by the Department of Justice before they are allowed on the field with our youth. To complete this, you will need to download our live scan form which can be taken to any servicer. You can do a quick google search for “local live scan locations” and take your form to them. The cost will range anywhere from $15-$30. Keep your copy of the live scan form after the service is done until you have received an email confirmation that we have received your results. On average it takes from 1-14 days to receive results back from the Department of Justice. We will update your Cal South profile as soon as that clearance comes in.
