- Volunteer Application
As a veteran parent or new parent to Rye Little League, there have been some changes that we want you to be aware of as a result of the implementation of the ASAP (A Safety Awareness Program). This program was launched by Little League International in 1994 after a focus group saw a need for improvement in the safety of the environment and the people that work with Little Leagues around the country. Their mission is to “increase awareness of the opportunities to provide a safer environment for kids and all Little League participants”.
In accordance with Little League International, all local Little Leagues are required to conduct background checks on managers, coaches, board of directors, members and any other persons, volunteers or hired workers, who provide regular service to the league and/or have repetitive access to, or contact with, players or teams. The form can be found on the Registration System under "Volunteer Registration". A copy of the applicant's driver's license will also have to be uploaded into the system.
Instructions are provided.
This Volunteer application will be sent to LexisNexis for a national background check. Your application and information will remain confidential and results released to our President Ray Hindle. The background checks will remain on file for the entire season and destroyed at the end of the season. Each year Rye Little League will continue to meet the requirements of Little League International with new background checks EVERY year. To see more information on LexisNexis or more information on project ASAP, go to www.littleleague.org
. If anyone has a concern or question on this new policy we ask that you contact Ray Hindle 2014 Rye Little League President
