All local Little Leagues are required to conduct background checks on managers, coaches, board of directors members and any other persons, volunteers or hired workers, who provide regular service to the league and/or have repetitive access to, or contact with, players or teams.
Individuals are required to complete and submit a Little League Volunteer Application to their local league.
These checks are required to be processed each year.
Background checks are processed through JDP, the official Little League provider for background checks. New for 2019 is a bulk upload feature, and online form submission. We no longer have the PDF or paper that we print out and submit. Now, the safety officer will take all names and emails of the volunteers, upload to JDP and the members will receive a link to fill out their information. This will submit the background check securely online and give a pass or fail back to our league, clearing you to volunteer on and off the field with our players.
We expect to upload these names the week of January 15th for the mass member list.
Little League does not allow individuals to work or volunteer who have been convicted or pled guilty to charges involving or against a minor, no matter where the offense occurred.
Additional information about the league's background check policy can be obtained by sending an email to [email protected].
