USA-Swimming Coaches Background Check Vendor Change
On April 1, USA Swimming transitioned from its current background check vendor, SterlingBackCheck, to its new partner, IntelliCorp Records. This should not have a significant effect on the process by which members complete their background checks. The process remains as follows:

1. Members will initiate the background check through the USA Swimming website at www.usaswimming.org/backgroundcheck.

    a. New members will select Option 1: New Member Background Check

    b. Renewing members will select Option 2: Renewal Background Check

2.The member will be redirected to the IntelliRecords USA Swimming portal where they will be asked to (1) digitally sign a Disclosure, Authorization, and the USA Swimming Code of Conduct; (2) fill out their personal information and submit payment.

3. The cost for all members the first time they complete a background check with Intellicorp is $38. Subsequent renewal checks are $18.

4. Results will be returned to the member via email within 7-14 business days.

5. Results will be automatically updated in SWIMS to reflect the new BGC expiration date.

We understand this is an additional cost, but the new provider should provide much better customer service for our members. Some background checks have been taking more than a month to come back; this vendor should be able to turn them around quicker. You will be able to go back to the vendor’s website, log in and check the status of your background check if you think it is taking too long.
