Did you know that all Class A volunteers’ background clearances will expire on July 1, 2016? The new Pennsylvania law goes into effect on July 1, 2016.  Therefore, all SOPA Class A volunteers must complete all new background clearances by July 1, 2016 OR before the volunteer begins their Class A role.  For example all Management Team Members and Fall Sports Coaches need to begin the process now, while Winter Sports Coaches may wait until the fall to start the new clearances. Contact the SOMC office to start your new clearances.
