The Pennsylvania State Legislature passed a series of new state regulations for increased protection of children from potential predators.  The new regulations include requirements for additional background checks for volunteers who have regular direct contact with children.  These new requirements took effect July 1, 2016.  All volunteers will need to fully comply with these new state requirements.  It is also important to note that the state requirements do not replace existing Little League requirements for volunteer applications and background checks - the state requirements are 
in addition to the Little League requirements.  These requirements apply to anyone who has direct and regular contact with players:  managers, coaches, volunteers, and regular umpires.

Please note that there are three clearances required but one of them, the Federal Criminal History Check, is not required for non-profit youth program volunteers if the volunteer has resided within Pennsylvania continuously for the past 10 years.  If you previously have these clearances and they are less than FIVE years old, they are still valid for volunteer work.  Please be sure to check with Ciara Nixon that your clearances have been retained with the Penns Valley Little League.
