ID BADGES & BACKGROUND CHECK

In order to keep our children safe while playing for North Snohomish Little League; we comply with Little League International's requirement that each volunteer submit a Signed Volunteer Application (along with a driver's license photocopy) prior to any contact with the children of our league. Your social security number must also be submitted for a valid background check.

First Advantage, a national registry organization has contracted with Little League to provide local leagues with a special Internet site that allows the Board to search a criminal records database of more than 200 million criminal records instantly. This site provides searches of available criminal records from various repository sources and state level sex offender registries across the United States. Though Little League International requires members to search a minimum of the Department of Justice National Sex Offender Registry, this special Internet site includes state level sex offender searches for the entire United States that may uncover violent criminals who could pose potential danger to players and associates. Therefore, North Snohomish Little League has voted to use this service offered by First Advantage and implement a higher standard than required.


ID Badges Must Be Worn At All Times!

Please understand that under NO CIRCUMSTANCES will anyone who has not been cleared by First Advantage be allowed into any situation where they will have contact with the kids of our league. This includes (but is not limited to) assisting at practices, umpiring, or supervising a group of kids while the coach is busy. Team Parents and Safety Parents must also have a valid NSLL badge. Managers, coaches and volunteers who do not visibly wear their id badges at practices or competitions will not be allowed on the field.

Concession workers will not be required to obtain a badge; however, it is recommended. If you will not be on the field, in the dugout, or assisting with the players in any manner and intent to only work your required shifts in the concession stand, you will not be required to have a badge.
