All volunteers should click Little League Volunteer Application to fill out the volunteer application form.

2. PA Child Abuse History Clearance

This takes a few days to up to a week to receive the results.  The applicant needs to monitor their inbox for an email that will allow them to log back on and download the clearance document.  Please print the clearance document and submit along with your other necessary background clearance forms.  The cost is free for volunteers.

The PA child abuse document and the PA state criminal document are good for a period of five years. Please retain a copy of this document for your records. Please submit your documents along with the other documents all at the same time.
Volunteers under the ages under the age of 18 are not required to have clearance documents. However, these volunteers should only be allowed to work with the players if supervised by a background- cleared- adult.

4. FBI check ONLY for those to whom it applies

An FBI Criminal Background Check if you have NOT been a continuous resident of Pennsylvania for 10 years.  For the FBI check (if needed) the applicant needs to go to a location for finger printing and then they can submit for that check.


5. Disclosure Statement

Volunteers not requiring an FBI check, and have been a continuous resident of PA for the last ten years, must swear or affirm in writing that they have no other convictions that would disqualify them. This is a document that will need to be printed out, signed and submitted with your other clearances.
