 Coaches Background checks (please click link and complete): https://opportunities.averity.com/EastLouisville

Coaches, the website that ELS is directing you to will provide ELS ONLY with information from the following:
 -          National Criminal Database Search
-          SSN Verification
-          National Sex Offender Registry

The website offers much more extensive background checks for business, industry, etc… than ELS is using. That is reflected in the wording of their disclaimer. ELS, however. is not collecting or receiving credit history, educational information, etc… on its coaches. The information we receive is held in strict confidence and is only used in an attempt to protect the children and families we are serving. There is no cost to you to complete this background check.
