Mandatory Abuse Awareness training

  • It is important that all volunteers in a league complete the training on an annual basis. Even though it may be a training an individual has completed in the past, it is important to keep the information that is taught through Abuse Awareness Training fresh in everyone’s mind. The more individuals involved in a league that have the information that Abuse Awareness Training provides, the better.
  • USA Baseball’s BASE Abuse Awareness Training is a FREE online training that is SafeSport-compliant. This course can be completed in approximately 30 minutes online, producing a certificate of completion that you will share with the individual at your league who is responsible for overseeing your league’s background checks to verify you have completed the training. Regardless of which training program is used, each individual is responsible for providing their league with documentation to show that they’ve completed Abuse Awareness Training, annually.
