California District 54 Little League

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 and safe participation.

Safety Information


  • There are 2 types of background checks required in California:
  • (1) All Little League volunteers, including administrators, coaches, umpires, and league volunteers (concessions, team parent, etc.) must complete an ANNUAL background check, as required by Little League (*see below). Most leagues in District 54 use J.D. Palatine (JDP) for these background checks.
  • (2) The State of California, via the California Penal Code, requires Live Scan fingerprinting background checks for volunteers who are 18 years of age or older and are administrators of a youth sports organization (e.g. board members) and/or who spend 16 or more hours per month or 32 hours per year in direct contact with or supervision of children (this would include managers and coaches). Live Scan does not need to be repeated annually, however, please refer to your local league's background check policy for details regarding if and when Live Scan would need to be repeated.
  • NOTE: All local leagues should have a background check policy that clearly states the league's procedures for reviewing background check results, taking action on red flags, and managing Live Scan reports.

    *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.

Q: Why do volunteers need Live Scan fingerprinting?

A: California law 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.
