An individual who is required, but fails, to report suspected child sexual abuse is subject to criminal penalties. If an individual suspect a case of abuse within their league, they should report it to the appropriate child services organization and/or local law enforcement as well as, their league president and District Administrator. Information regarding reporting child abuse can be found, at: LittleLeague.org/player-safety.
