Dear Little League District Staffs, Local League Presidents and Local League Officials:
Each year, Little League International affords all of its leagues in the United States the opportunity to conduct 125 free criminal background checks through Lexis Nexis. These national checks are designed as a safety measure, and must be completed before any volunteer assumes his or her duties with the local league.
Lexis Nexis background checks are made even more cost effective by the $1 charge for each background check conducted after the first of your league or district’s 125 checks are completed.
It is not mandated that Lexis Nexis be used to complete this requirement, but it is strongly recommended by Little League International.
Per Little League Regulation I (c) 8 and 9, a national check of the sex offender registries in all 50 states must be done on each volunteer with “repetitive access” to children. By using Lexis Nexis, the regulation requirement is met, and leagues also have access to an annual database of 270 million individual criminal records.
Background checks are required for:
- Practice Coaches
- Board Members
- Misc. positions
- Equipment manager
- Field maintenance
- General volunteer
- Concession worker
- Team Parent
If you have any questions, or require additional information on conducting background checks, please contact Jim Ferguson, Assistant Director of Risk Management, at 570-326-1921, ext. 2212; or email@example.com
See the document titled “Major Gifts and Grants” in the documents section of this site for some new ideas about applying for grants for your league. Also included is information about fundraising via MissionFish and eBay. More information can be found at missionfish.org or givingworks.ebay.com.
