Background Check Policy

Little League Background Check Policy
Volunteers within our league (managers, coaches, members of the Board of Directors, and other persons, volunteer or hired workers who provide regular service to the league and/or have repetitive access to or contact with players or teams), MUST submit annually a "Little League Volunteer Application." 

Falls Little League conducts a National Criminal File database search that includes criminal records and sex offender registry records across 50 states.  

Health and Safety

The safety and well-being of all participants in the Little League program is paramount. As adults, we want to ensure that the young people playing in the Little League program are able to grow up happy, healthy and, above all, safe. Whether they are our children, or the children of others, each of us has a responsibility to protect them. 

Only cleared volunteers are allowed to participate in youth practice, game activities, scorekeeping, umpiring, etc.  This needs to be completed on an annual basis.

After completing our Volunteer Application Registration, you will receive an e-mail where you will receive a background screening invite from Little League's background screening provider J.D. Palatine (JDP) .  The application must be filled out in it's entirety and our Falls Little League will be notified once your application has been processed.
