Are There Any Volunteer Requirements?

Yes, all volunteers must undergo background checks. See below for forms and links.
For more information please click here for all the background check information and requirements you will need to volunteer. 

Why Are Background Checks Necessary?

All little league programs nationwide are required to annually conduct background checks on Managers, Coaches, Board of Directors members and any other persons, volunteers or hired workers, who provide regular service to the league and/or have repetitive access to, or contact with players or teams. Pennsylvania State Legislature passed a series of new state regulations for increased protection of children from potential predators.

The purpose of these background checks is to protect our children by providing as safe an environment as possible. Therefore, failure to complete and submit the volunteer application form by those required to do so will result in that person being barred from participation in Bellefonte Little League.

All information received by the league will be treated as confidential. Should you have questions regarding this requirement, please email [email protected]. Please click here for all the background check information and requirements you will need to volunteer.
