Coach's Background Screening - NCSI

Tewksbury Athletic Association thanks you for volunteering to be a coach.  To help facilitate a more streamlined and timely approach to conducting back ground checks on our coaches, we have contracted with the National Center for Safety Initiatives (NCSI).  We hope you find this new process improved over the prior process that required fingerprinting.  

LACROSSE COACH CANDIDATES:  The NJJLL (our League) requires that all coaches be members of and credentialed by US Lacrosse.  Please go to to join and register as a "Coach" and when prompted, from "Tewksbury Lacrosse".  In this registration process you will be provided a complementary background check by NCSI, which takes all of 5 minutes.  

All other coaches, please follow the directions below to start your background screening.  

Simply go to:  NCSI Background Screen.  Complete three easy steps:  

Step 1: Enter Self Registration Number: 75879736
Step 2: Enter Your Information as Requested
Step 3: Provide Legal Authorization and Certification 

It is important when entering your name that you use your full legal name as written on your current ID (state driver’s license, passport or state ID with name and DOB).  Please also verify that your social security number was typed correctly. Using nicknames or failing to type a correct social security number may delay or invalidate your background check.   

NCSI will contact you directly if there are any questions, problems or issues related to your specific information. An email address is required when completing the background check as NCSI's contact with you will largely be electronic. Please be sure to add to your list of acceptable domains in your email program to receive notifications from us.  

Note that during the screening process, you will need to provide NCSI with a scanned copy of your NJ State Driver's License or U.S. Passport.  If you do not have access to a scanner, please follow the prompts to provide NCSI with a mailed copy of the document.  NCSI will not complete your screen until they receive a copy of this document.  

The TAA covers all costs related to the NCSI Background Screening.

If you have any questions or problems submitting your information, please email [email protected] or call the NCSI at (440) 542-9833 or  toll free (866) 833-7100.  

Once you have submitted your information you will receive a confirmation page with a 16digit Applicant ID Number. The background check generally takes less than 10 business days to complete and you may check your status on our website under the "Check Your Background Screening Status" link at  

Thank you for your cooperation in this important process.
