Background checks are required for all volunteers who will come into contact with the players in the roles of Managers, Assistant Coaches, Extra Coaches, and Umpires. All Board Members are also required to pass a background check and be fingerprinted.
Please register as a Volunteer through your Sports Connect account and choose which role you will be volunteering for. Once teams have been formed, Managers and Coaches have been finalized the volunteer coordinator will initiate the Background Check Process through JDP.
Background checks are done annually. Most are done before the spring season, and that check is good for one year. For new volunteer staff joining us for the fall season, background checks will be submitted for those volunteers in the fall and the are good for one year from that date.
All volunteers in roles that require a background check are required to submit a background check annually. No exceptions.
Applicable volunteers will have their email submitted to our 3rd party vendor, JDP Risk Associates, the vendor recommend by Little League International.
The volunteer coordinator will submit your name and email to JDP and you will receive an email request asking for additional information to submit a background check. Social Security numbers are required for this process. There is no way around it and it is why DLL does not handle this process personally and uses a vetted and approved vendor recommended by LL International.
Applicable volunteers not adhering to this requirement will not be allowed to volunteer in a coaching or umpiring role.
Background checks are NOT required for the following volunteers:
- Team Parent Volunteers
- Field Prep Volunteers
- Snack Shack Volunteers
- Any other volunteer role where you will NOT come into personal contact with a minor.
For any questions about this process, please email Keli Martinez - [email protected] - DLL Volunteer Coordinator.
