PA Background Screening Requirements

Please do not shoot the messenger. The PA Legislature enacted Act 153 of 2014, and recently amended it making some minor changes. So in addition to the Little League screening requirements, all volunteers will be required to obtain three additional screenings and present them to the assignor in order to be eligible to participate in activities involving youth teams. You will need to provide the piece of paper for each one with the results – these will be kept on file with the league.

The screenings you’ll need are:

The screenings are not something we can avoid. For officials in the Atlantic District the Assignor is responsible to insure compliance. For youth sports organization it is the Head Coach. Failure to enforce the requirements will result in criminal prosecution. For more information visit http://keepkidssafe.pa.gov/. Please note that on the fingerprint report, if you have lived in PA for over ten (10) years, as a volunteer, you can submit the affidavit as well in place of the fingerprinting results.

Again, please don’t shoot the messenger. If you want more information on PA Act 153 of 2014 Google it. There are plenty of documents available on the internet.
