Background Check - City of Pembroke Pines

For a new Coach/Volunteer who’s fingerprints have not been scanned, they must fill out the New Background Screening Form and the Vechs Waiver Form. They will then need to attend a Background Screening set up by the City at one of the Parks or they will need to contact the Police Department and make an appointment to go down to Police Headquarters to complete their scan at 954-431-2705.

For Coaches/Volunteers who need a renewal, they must fill out the attached Background Screening Renewal Form. They can then email the form to the Police Department at [email protected]. They will then receive an email with their new TCN# in which they will need to pay for their Background. They will go to, and complete the process by submitting their TCN and payment.

Game Changer Team Manger App

As the coach of your team you can use the  GameChanger Team Manger application to view your schedule, chat with the parents and score the game.

You can import your team, along with its roster and schedule, from Sports Connect into GameChanger. Before importing your team, you must download the GameChanger app from the App Store (iOS) or Google Play (Android). Additionally, the following requirements must be true: 

  • You are using the same email address for GameChanger that you use for Sports Connect.
  • Your team's roster is posted on the Sports Connect website.
  • You are an allocated volunteer for your team on the Sports Connect site.

How to import your Sports Connect Team

  1. Sign in to GameChanger with the same email address you use with Sports Connect.
  2. Tap Create Team or the "+" sign to create a new team.
  3. Choose the option to Import Sports Connect.
  4. If you haven't already confirmed your email address, click Open Email App which will direct you to your email. Select Confirm Email Address, and you'll be redirected back to the GameChanger app.
  5. Select the team(s) to import. Make sure the team(s) you want to import have a check next to them, and then tap import in the upper corner of the screen. You will see the status of teams importing at the bottom of the screen. 


  • Any updates made to your schedule or roster will automatically update to the GameChanger GameChanger app. However, events that are listed as "Rescheduled" or "Postponed" on Sports Connect will not appear in GameChanger. You can manually trigger a schedule reimport via these steps.
  • Results from games scored in GameChanger will not appear on Sports Connect. Please make sure to head into the GameChanger app to view results (or, if you've created an Organization, you can try our Scoreboard Widget feature to show those results elsewhere).

If you have further questions please email [email protected].

Updating Your Sports Connect Schedule in GameChanger

All schedule changes made on your Sports Connect team site will automatically update in the GameChanger app. This includes the addition of games, cancellations, and any changes made to the game details. Schedule changes made in GameChanger will not sync back to Sports Connect.

You also have the option to manually re-import your team's schedule from Sports Connect through the following steps:

  1. Select your team.
  2. Select the gear icon to go into Team Settings.
  3. Select Schedule Sync.
  4. Select Re-Import Schedule.

Please note that events listed as rescheduled or postponed will not sync with the GameChanger app. For baseball and softball teams, changing a game's opponent will not sync to GameChanger. You will need to create a new event to solve either of these issues.
