It has become the standard among youth organizations to require volunteers working with children to complete a background check. The purpose of the required background check is to deter individuals who should not be working with young athletes from applying to volunteer. Additionally, it serves to identify any unsuitable criminal history of those individuals who do apply as a volunteer. Babe Ruth League, Inc. cares about the protection of your players and feels confident that through your leadership as League President, as well as that of your local league's Board of Directors, we can achieve our goal of making Babe Ruth League, Inc. the safest program in which our youth can enjoy the great games of baseball and softball.
All managers and coaches, as well as any other persons and volunteers, who provide regular service to the league and/or have repetitive access to, or contact with, players or teams are required to complete the background check and abuse prevention training.
