New Background Check Provider

As of today (March 1, 2018), Little League® International will provide its local leagues and districts with 125 free background checks exclusively through J.D. Palatine (JDP).

The JDP system has access to more than 450 million records, and includes criminal records and sex offender registry records across 50 states and the District of Columbia. If a league or district wishes to continue to use First Advantage to satisfy Little League® Background Check regulation I (c) 8 and 9, it will cost $1.20 per check.

The JDP system also allows local or district board members responsible for conducting the background checks to send an electronic link to individual volunteers in order to complete the Little League Volunteer Application online. A league board member can enter the volunteer's information, name, and email address, on the JDP website by using the "Quick App" navigation. The Quick App allows the league volunteer to personally and securely complete the volunteer application, including the social security number. The Little League Volunteer Application is tied with the background check and can be viewed on the leagues JDP Portal. Leagues must still verify the volunteer's application with a government-issued photo ID.

Free online JDP tutorials are available to help local league and district officials become familiar with completion of the background check process, and offers user support (855-799-8753; Other background check resources and information will also be available on the website's Child Protection page.

Little League's background check regulations will remain unchanged for the 2018 season, as JDP is comparable to First Advantage. However, expect the regulation to change prior to 2019. More information will be available on the new regulation following the 2018 season. If you have any additional questions, please contact Little League Support at
