Background Checks

Korrio understands the importance of safety and privacy for our children. One important part of this is to insure that coaches, team managers, volunteers and various administrators who interact with children have proper background checks.

To describe how Korrio handles the background check process, we’ll use an example from Washington Youth Soccer which uses the Risk Management Application (RMA) process. An RMA is an authorization for a background check, and it is required for employees or volunteers for any organization within Washington Youth Soccer.

Let’s get started…

Viewing a member’s RMA

To verify that a coach, team manger and any other administrator or volunteer who is required to have an RMA  has one:

  1. Go to the person’s profile in Korrio. You will see a profile tab at the the top of each member’s screen. Select the profile tab.
  2. In the Member Information section of the profile, check to see if they have a valid RMA number.

Requesting and Authorizing RMAs

There will be occasions when a new person needs an RMA before they can start working with a team, club or association; this RMA must be requested by an administrator or registrar of the organization. To request an RMA:

  1. Go to the person’s profile in Korrio.
  2. If the person is not yet a member of Korrio, use Create Member under your organization’s Roster or Personnel tab to create an account in Korrio.
  3. Ensure that the person has a valid email address. This is required so the applicant can authorize his or her own background check.
  4. Click the box to “Request an RMA”
  5. Washington Youth Soccer will process the requested RMA background check and will set the applicant’s RMA status accordingly.
  6. The applicant’s RMA information, including RMA number and RMA Status, will also appear in the Applicant’s Profile page.

Adult-only Programs and RMAs

An RMA can also be requested for Adult-only registrations, such as Coaches Clinics. If this option has been set in your Adult-only program, the registrant will be prompted to sign the background check form and their RMA status will automatically be set to ‘requested.’ The rest of the process is the same as described in Steps 5 and 6 above.
