Class A and Protective Behaviors
Class A Volunteers
All Class A Volunteers must complete a Class A Volunteer & Unified Partner Application. Active Class A Volunteers will be re-screened automatically on a 3-year cycle.
Class A Volunteers are volunteers who have regular, close physical contact with athletes, who are in a position of authority or supervision with athletes, who are in a position of trust with athletes and who handle substantial amounts of cash or other assets of SOKS.
Examples of Class A Volunteer: coaches, chaperones, Unified Partners, Athlete Leadership Program mentors, family members who drive non-related athletes and GMT members.
