To All Volunteers:
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.
All local Little Leagues are required to conduct background checks on managers, coaches, the board of directors’ members and any other persons, volunteers or hired workers, who provide regular services to the league and/or have repetitive access to, or contact with, players or teams.
In order to conduct these checks, Little League International has contracted with JDP to provide local leagues with a special Internet site that allows members to search a criminal records database of more than 450 million criminal records – instantly.
Additionally, in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, any entity or organization primarily engaged in providing activities or programs to children 18 years of age or less shall obtain “all available criminal offender record information” from the Department of Criminal Justice Information Services (DCJIS) prior to accepting any person as an employee, volunteer, vendor or contractor.
To begin the process: Please complete the online Volunteer Coaching registration for baseball or softball HERE. Print, complete and scan the CORI Form and send it to our Safety Officer (
) to begin the process of your background check.
Managers, Coaches, Parents, Spectators, Board of Directors Members, and all Sharon Youth Baseball and Softball Participants:
Welcome to another year of fun and exciting baseball with SYBSA! This is Sharon Little League’s “A Safety Awareness Plan” (ASAP) for the 2020 baseball season (insert hyperlink when approved). This plan was developed to ensure the youth of Sharon Little League have the opportunity to play and learn the game of baseball in a safe setting. This plan has been approved by the SYBSA Board of Directors and submitted to our District Administrator and Little League International for approval. This plan will be updated and revised on an annual basis, to ensure the safety of everyone involved with Sharon Little League.
Reading this plan is critical and mandatory for all managers at all levels. This plan will also be posted on the SYBSA website.
Your feedback and suggestions are welcome and an important part of our safety efforts. Please feel free to contact any Board member or Ben Thaler, at
We look forward to an exciting and safe season!
