2017 NCAA DI Swimming and Diving Championships
March 15-27, 2017
Welcome to the 2017 NCAA Division I Swimming & Diving Championships!
The IU Natatorium on the campus of IUPUI will host the NCAA Division I Women’s Swimming & Diving Championships March 15-18, 2017 and the NCAA Division I Men’s Swimming & Diving Championships March 22-25, 2017.
Our community and the facility have a rich history of hosting these NCAA Championships. Since 1983, NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships have been hosted at the IU Natatorium 11 times. This is more than any other venue in the nation. It is the largest indoor swimming venue in the country and can seat approximately 3,500 fans.
Indiana Sports Corporation is once again recruiting dedicated volunteers who are ambassadors of the community and passionate about athletic events. Whether a veteran volunteer who takes pride in Indianapolis and exceeds all expectations just like the city itself, or a new volunteer with new ideas and energy, we are searching for those who will make our guests remember their unique experience in Indianapolis.
Key volunteer information you should know:
1. REQUIREMENTS: All volunteers must be 18 years of age or older. All volunteers are required to register for a minimum of three (3) volunteer shifts (2 shifts plus packet pickup).
2. UNIFORM: The official volunteer uniform shirt should be worn with clean and well maintained tan khaki or black pants or skirt and comfortable shoes. Please note that there will be no safekeeping of items at the event.
3. EVENT PARKING: Parking will be provided.
4. BACKGROUND SCREENING: Indiana Sports Corp (ISC) requires background screens for all volunteer positions that involve youth. These positions are marked with an asterisk (*) within the registration site that displays all available shifts. These background screens are done by an independent third party at NO COST TO YOU. Once you have signed up for a youth-specific volunteer position, you will receive an e-mail from ISC one month before the event with the link to National Center for Safety Initiatives (NCSI) for the background screen. NCSI will collect the necessary information from you directly and conduct the background screen. Your information is maintained by NCSI; ISC does not have access to your personal information.
Upon completion of your background screen, you will receive an e-mail directly from NCSI. The email will confirm that you have filled out the necessary information for the check and let you know it is processing. To check the status and results of your check you will need to return to www.ncsisafe.com and click “check your background screening status” at the bottom. You will not receive any communication from NCSI or ISC if you have passed (“green light”). If you failed (“red light”) the background screen for any reason including an incomplete application you will receive notification from NCSI. The notification will not include any other information or explanation supporting NCSI’s determination; however, the notification will include contact information should you want to discuss the results with an NCSI representative.
If you receive a red light notification, you will not be able to volunteer for youth-specific positions and your volunteer assignments will be cancelled. ISC will not ask you for details or explanations for a red light notification, and cannot assist you in researching or understanding a red light notification. ISC will abide by the notification provided by NCSI, and will not “override” that designation under any circumstances. You may have the opportunity to sign up for another volunteer opportunity to the extent that other assignments are available.
ISC follows the National Council of Youth Sports (NCYS) guidelines; a red light (fail) designation results for any of the following:
· Any felony (any crime punishable by confinement greater than one year)
o Defined on the basis of exposure for the offense for which the defendant was convicted, pled guilty or pled nolo contendere. If pled down, then the crime to which the defendant ultimately pled.
o Any lesser crime involving force or threat of force against a person
o Any lesser crime in which sexual relations is an element, including “victimless” crimes of a sexual nature (including pornography).
o Any lesser crime involving controlled substances (not paraphernalia or alcohol).
o Any lesser crime involving cruelty to animals
