Volunteer Policies and Clearance Requirements

Each season we need parent volunteers to help the practices and meets run smoothly! All parents and/or guardian volunteers will need to submit Volunteer State Police and Child Abuse Clearances in order to participate.  If you are a parent member who has not lived in PA for the last 10 years, you will also need an FBI fingerprinting clearance.

We do require parent/guardian volunteering throughout the season, so we strongly encourage all adult members of ACWS to obtain the proper paperwork. For volunteers, clearances are free and can be completed online. 


Submit Your Clearances

If you have an electronic copy of your existing clearance paperwork, you can simply email them to the ACWS Volunteer Coordinator at [email protected].


Get Your Clearances

If you do not have your clearances, apply for them online using the following links:

Our database of the clearances submitted to ACWS is confidential. It protects all of our swimmers as well as swimmers from opposing teams when they come to our pool for swim meets. It also ensures that when we arrive at away swim meets our team can compete as all of our parent/guardian volunteers and officials have proper clearances.
Any questions or concerns, please email the ACWS  Volunteer Coordinator  at  [email protected] .
