VIRTUS & Fingerprinting

VIRTUS is a program that identifies best practices programs designed to help prevent wrongdoing and promote "rightdoing" within religious organizations. The VIRTUS programs empower organizations and people to better control risk and improve the lives of all those who interact with the Church. 

As a Sacred Heart CYO League Rule, any parent or guardian that will be in the dugout during the season for any purpose must have completed VIRTUS Training along with fingerprinting for a background check.  This goes for Coaches and Team Parents if you want to be in the dugout area.  If you have not completed these 2 requirements, by league rule you are not allowed in the dugout area during games and practices.  You only need to complete the VIRTUS training once, but fingerprints need to be completed every 3 years.  Below are the scheduled VIRTUS Training dates at Sacred Heart.  If you are a new coach this season please try and attend one of these sessions, if you cannot make the sessions below please email the league and we can let you know of classes that may be in the surrounding area.  Information for fingerprinting is located in the documents section.  All new coaches will need to provide the league with a certificate of completion from the VIRTUS class that they attended in order to be allowed to coach for the season.

Fingerprinting:

In conjunction with VIRTUS, the Parish also requires coaches to be fingerprinted, with a background search conducted. Fingerprints are valid for a three year period (unlike VIRTUS, which is good for life).

Fingerprinting is done by an outside service with reports sent directly to the Parish. You must register for a fingerprinting appointment, by visiting:http://www.identogo.com/FP/NewJersey.aspx. The two nearest locations are in Cherry Hill (57 Haddonfield Road, Suite 110 - near the Cherry Hill Mall, on the Pennsauken side) and Ewing (1230 Parkway Ave, Suite 102 - near the Airport). 

Before registering for fingerprinting, please print out the fingerprinting form at our League Information --> Document Center section of the website so that you have relevant identification information relating to Sacred Heart Parish and the Diocese.

New coaches will are mandated to undergo the fingerprinting process conducted by the outside service (employer or police versions are not accepted). Returning coaches who had fingerprinting performed several years ago should wait to go again until being asked to do so.

If you have any questions about VIRTUS or the fingerprinting program, please email us at: SHCYO.Board@gmail.com.
