District 54 Safety Mission Statement

Our goal is to provide the safest Little League experience for every player, umpire and adult volunteer in our leagues.

Safety is the responsibility of every participant and we all work together to ensure a safe environment and to promote a culture of injury prevention.

Safety Information

BACKGROUND CHECKS

  •  All volunteers must complete an annual background check, as required by Little League (*see below).
  • NOTE: for the 2022 season, per California Assembly Bill 506, fingerprinting will also be required: "An administrator, employee, or regular volunteer of a youth service organization shall undergo a background check pursuant to Section 11105.3 of the Penal Code [which includes fingerprinting] to identify and exclude any persons with a history of child abuse." (**see below)

    *Little League International requires all leagues and districts in the United States to conduct an annual background check, including a nationwide criminal search and a search of the National Sex Offender Registry. Little League's preferred provider, J.D Palatine, has a Criminal File database that contains more than 600 million records, including criminal and sex offender registry records covering 50 states and the District of Columbia, meeting the current Little League Regulation 1(c) 8 & 9 requirement.

Got Safety Questions?

Q: Why do volunteers need Live Scan fingerprinting this year?

A: New California legislation (AB 506) requires "An administrator, employee, or regular volunteer of a youth service organization shall undergo a background check pursuant to Section 11105.3 of the Penal Code to identify and exclude any persons with a history of child abuse." This background check, per the Penal Code above, includes fingerprints.
-CA AB 506, Section 1, Chapter 2.9 Youth Service Organizations," 18975 (b)
