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 and Virtus Information Fingerprinting: You can find the form you need here. To register, go to this page and enter 2F1J3Y in the space marked “Enter your service code to get started.” From there, choose “Schedule/Manage and appointment.” It is very important to arrive on time for your appointment, and to bring your completed form with you. *The cost of fingerprinting for volunteers is currently $24.05 for volunteers, for which you will be reimbursed. When you have completed fingerprinting, please submit the form with receipt to the administrator of the program you are volunteering/working with so we can have your reimbursement sent to you.

Virtus Certification:

The Diocese is currently offering Virtus in an online module, in a format that allows you to work at your own pace; once begun, it must be completed within a two-week time frame. In order to take this online module, you will first need to create a Virtus user account if you do not already have one. To create an account, click here and choose "First time registrant" (do not select a session when prompted). If you have any problems creating an account, please contact Merry at [email protected]

When you have your account set up, please send Merry your name, Virtus user ID, and whether you need initial training or re-certification. She will then register you for the online module, and you will receive the information you need to begin from 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: [email protected].
