New Child Protection laws that affect CB Raider volunteers
Any CB Raider volunteer ages 18 and older who accepts responsibility for a CB Raider wrestler and has direct contact* with our players is defined as a mandatory reporter under Pennsylvania law:
*“Direct contact” is defined as the care, supervision, guidance or control of children and routine interaction with children. “Routine interaction with children” is defined as regular and repeated contact that is integral to a person's employment or volunteer responsibilities.
As a mandatory reporter, certain clearances will be required for an individual to participate within the CB Raider Organization, the following forms must be submitted to Brandy Decembrino at firstname.lastname@example.org prior to the start of the 2018/19 wrestling season. At a minimum this applies to all Head Coaches and Assistant Coaches in our program.
