NCSI Background Check

The Marlington Little Dukes have taken important steps to ensure the highest level of safety within our programs. One of these steps is the implementation of a standardized approach to background screening for our coaches. This includes a comprehensive background screening program using NCSI's Full-Service product and a simple "Red Light/Green Light clearance report issued in accordance with the criteria chosen by the Eastern Buckeye Conference Youth Football League.

Please use this link to fill out all the required background screening information and provide legal authorization and certification.

The "Red Light/Green Light" Results will be sent to the Marlington Little Dukes organization. National Center for Safety Initiatives will contact you directly if there are any questions, problems, or issues related to your specific information. An email address is required when completing the background check, as our contact with you will largely be electronic.

If you have any questions or problems submitting your information, please call the National Center for Safety Initiatives at (866) 833-7100. Once you have submitted your information, you will receive a confirmation page. The background check generally takes 5 to 7 business days to complete.

Concussion in Sports Course

The NFHS has teamed up with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to educate coaches, officials, parents and students on the importance of proper concussion recognition and management in school sports. All coaches are required to take this course which highlights the impact of sports-related concussion on athletes, teaches how to recognize a suspected concussion, and provides protocols to manage a suspected concussion with steps to help players return to play safely after a concussion. 

A completed certificate is a requirement to coach in the EBC Youth league. Go to
