All volunteers, including coaches, assistant coaches, and team managers must have a cleared background check on file before they may volunteer for Hartwell. The background checks are valid for two years.
DO NOT USE YOUR SMART PHONE TO COMPLETE THIS PROCESS. Get on a computer and use either Google Chrome or Firefox. We've seen the most success with those browsers.
HOW TO COMPLETE or REFRESH YOUR BACKGROUND CHECK REQUIREMENTS IN BLUE SOMBRERO (see screenshot below):
Log in and click on "VOLUNTEER" - NOTE: Give this page at least 30 seconds to fully load. It will look like nothing is happening, but that page is accessing external databases and will need a minute to pull it all together. Once it loads, you will see something like the screenshot below.
Check the Risk Statuscheckbox. That is the where the background checks are initiated or updated. Then click on "Renew & Update".
For background checks, the system will require your social security number. NOTE: Hartwell and Blue Sombrero/Sports Connect do NOT store your social security number. It is immediately encrypted and transmitted to the vendor for processing.
