Cal South has once again made advancements in the KIDSAFE Risk Management program by switching to Live Scan fingerprint technology. This switch solidifies Cal South's position as having one of the most progressive risk management programs in the country, with a focus on keeping all of Cal South's 204,000 members KIDSAFE.
Live Scan digital submissions provide the quickest way to submit and process fingerprints and background checks through the California Department of Justice. They also provide for seamless integration into the California Department of Justice Subsequent Arrest Notification program. Through use of this program, we retain the ability to screen subsequent arrest activity and make decisions towards keeping KIDSAFE and protecting the best interest of our 300+ Cal South Affiliate Member leagues and clubs.
1. Quicker California Department of Justice turnaround on all fingerprint submissions.
2. More sessions, shorter lines and Live Scan options available to your league.
3. Keeping your league and players KIDSAFE!

What Is the Cal South "KIDSAFE" Risk Management Program?
It is a one-time Live Scan digital submission providing the quickest way to submit and process background checks through the Department of Justice. This program notifies Cal South when subsequent arrest activity occurs and allows Cal South to make decisions that will minimize risk and keep kids safe, while protecting the best interest of our members, leagues and clubs.
Why is Cal South requiring Live Scan for referees?
It is the intent of Cal South to provide an environment that fosters the well-being and safety of all its players and members.
Are all referees required to have Live Scan done?
All USSF certified referees, 18 and older, who wish to officiate Cal South sanctioned youth matches will need to go through the Live Scan Program.
When will the program be implemented?
This requirement will be effective January 1, 2010. Referees should complete the ONE-TIME Live Scan process to ensure eligibility for youth match assignments.
How much will the cost be and who will be responsible for paying the service?
The cost is $15.00 when the Live Scan is performed at an event scheduled through Cal South or at IBT (Integrated Biometric Technology, LLC), the exclusive Live Scan provider for Cal South. The 25 IBT fixed locations can be found at www.l1enrollment.com/locations/?st=ca. The referee will be responsible for paying for the service. It may cost up to $35.00 at independent retailers.
What do I need to have Live Scan done?
You will need a Cal South Live Scan form, an official government ID (driver license, passport) with photo, and $15.00.
If someone was fingerprinted for their job, will they still need to go through the process for Cal South?
Yes. Due to the privacy act, information may not be shared from one agency to another. You will have to do the process again through Cal South.
If I already have a Risk Management ID with Cal South as an administrator, will I have to go through the process again?
What course of action will Cal South take if referees refuse to participate in the Live Scan procedure?
The referees will not be available to referee any Cal South youth games until they have completed the process.
Who will be the person/persons at Cal South who will process the information from the Live Scan screening, and what safeguards will be in place for the referee?
The chairperson of the Risk Management Committee is the only member involved in the notification process, along with the referee in question.
What criteria will be used to determine if a referee is disqualified as a result of Live Scan screening?
The Risk Management chairperson reviews the notification and determines if the data represents a risk to our youth members. A negative determination is appealable by the referee.
What happens if an association assigns a referee to a match who has not been Live Scan qualified?
Upon confirmation of the assignment of an unqualified official, the assignor will then be notified by the SRA. Appropriate training and direction will be given to the assignor to prevent future occurrences.
Does the referee receive notification letting them know they have been approved?
The referee can go to www.CalSouth.com, where an updated Approval list can be found after October 31st 2009.
How will the assignors get access to the approved list?
All assignors will have access to the Risk Management approval list.
