Cumberland Valley Youth Cheer Association

Welcome to CVYCA's Background Check System!

The PA Child Protective Services Law change effective January 1, 2015 affects all clubs (and all youth sports organizations).  All background checks must be completed using providers designated by the state of Pennsylvania.  CVYCA does not provide the background checks. We have provided an outline of what is needed and links to each of these clearances below.  Please review the information on this page thoroughly. Once you have received ALL the required clearances you will submit the paperwork to CVYCA's President, Dani Mumma.  Cumberland Valley Youth Cheer Association has taken important steps to ensure the safety of our programs and its participants.  

Advisors and Volunteers must provide the following: 

  • State Police Criminal Record Check
