From the beginning, NCSI | SSCI identified abundant deficiencies in the traditional methods utilized for background checks. Aggressively addressing the need to upgrade the background screening process for volunteers, NCSI | SSCI has become the leader in youth-centered background screening solutions, providing the “Gold Standard” in protection for individuals and organizations. Through in-depth investigations, NCSI I SSCI goes beyond a standard database-only search to ensure that all applicants are thoroughly screened before they work with children and communities.
Together, NCSI | SSCI has one goal - to protect vulnerable populations. NCSI | SSCI is trusted by thousands of sports organizations, faith-based organizations, city and county agencies, park and recreation departments, and national governing bodies to provide training, education and comprehensive volunteer background checks.
The mission of NCSI | SSCI, formed in partnership with the National Council of Youth Sports (NCYS), is "to serve as our country's premiere resource in an overall effort to eradicate harm and loss in organizations and communities across the globe through increased awareness and training, the creation and implementation of national standards and the integration of fully-managed risk management programs, inclusive of background screening."
SportsEngine, Inc. is the leading software provider of sport life management solutions for coaches, parents, athletes and youth sports associations. Safety is a fundamental piece of SportsEngine’s mission to help more kids get out and play. As a result, in 2017, SportsEngine acquired the two leading providers of background screening services, NCSI and SSCI. While NSCI and SSCI services are fully-integrated with the SportsEngine platform, they remain as an independently-operated company to ensure data privacy and security.
Going forward, NCSI and SSCI will be combined under the unified brand of NCSI as the two companies advance together as a national leader in background screening solutions.

NCSI has one goal – to protect vulnerable populations. Our children and seniors, young athletes, those with disabilities and others who trust you can’t always protect themselves from predators. With our help, you can protect them.
Organizations that serve these individuals need to have protocol and systems in place to prevent harm and protect their participants.

Through our NCSI 360™, we formulate programs that help organizations gain visibility to potential threats to make more informed decisions about the people who represent their organization.
