NVYFL Coaches Requirements

Below you will find the the mandatory coaching application form which must be completed and signed by all league coaches.

Coaches are required by the league to pass a Vermont records background check. It is free, however, it ONLY covers criminal convictions within the state of Vermont. A national record can be run through USA Football. The USA Football background check is $20 per coach for two years. The league commissioner is notified anything within that two years if the person is convicted of anything within the United States.

Pursuant to changes made to Title 20, Chapter 117, Section 2056(c) during the 2007 - 2008 legislative session, a person may obtain from the Vermont Criminal Information Center (VCIC) a criminal conviction record for any purpose provided the requestor has filed a user agreement with VCIC. This means that the conviction records on file at VCIC will be open and available to the public effective July 1, 2008. Please note that the procedures described herein apply only to Vermont criminal conviction searches and not to national record checks acquired from the FBI.

To perform the VCIC background check you must log in using the league administrative code for this process to be free. Please email Kerri at to get the login and password to this website

You must have the coach's full name, any alias and their date of birth.
