Initiating a Background Check
OPTION 1: NEW MEMBER BACKGROUND CHECK:
Passing a criminal background check is a requirement for all non-athlete members. If you are a new member in USA Swimming and have never completed the USA Swimming background check, please select the correct link below.
Option 2: RENEWAL background check
The USA Swimming background check completed through SterlingBackCheck is valid for 24 months. After that time, you will need to renew your background check to keep your membership current. If more than 30 days has passed since your background check expired, you will need to compete the New Member Background Check in Option 1 above.
All USA Swimming members will all use the link below and complete the same renewal check. It costs $18.
Please enter your name and date of birth or USAS ID below to find out when your current USA Swimming background check expires. Click "This is Me" to move through to the renewal screen.
