Changes to background screening requirements for Safesport

Beginning in September 2019, per the updated USOC/ NGB Background Screening Policy, USA Fencing will no longer be able to accept travel cards, such as Global Entry, Nexus and Sentry, in lieu of a Background Screen.  Our records indicate that you provided a copy of your Global Entry or Nexus Card to satisfy the background screen requirement. 

In order to meet the background screen requirement for the 2019-20 membership season, you will need to complete a background screen through your membership profile.  Once you renew your membership and upgrade to +Checked the link to the background screen will be active in your membership profile.  Click the link and it will take you to NCSI to complete the screen.  If you need to complete an international background screen, contact safesport@usafencing.org to get instructions and a self-registration number.
