Starting in 2017, a local league participating under Little League within the United States must conduct a Nationwide Mandatory Criminal Background check utilizing First Advantage or another provider that is comparable to First Advantage in accessing background check records for sex offender registry data and other criminal records. No local league shall permit any person to participate in any manner whose background check reveals a conviction, guilty plea, no contest plea, or admission to any crime involving or against a minor or minors. All local leagues must take into consideration criminal records when making the determination whether the individual is unfit to participate in any manner in the league.
This will require ALL coaches AND parents that they allow on the field to interact with the team to submit their 2017 Volunteer Form(s) with their social security number.
Failure to comply will result in canceled practices and/or games until further accommodations can be made for the team.
