Background checks are mandatory for all league coaches, managers and staff in 2021. These checks must go thru SAFE Sports Engine. Pennsylvania is different than other states as you must obtain clearances from Pennsylvania and then upload them to SAFE sports. ALL volunteers must have clearances completed prior to the first team activities for the season. Volunteers will NOT be permitted to help in any way until these clearances have been submitted to SAFE Sports.
The PA state clearances can be obtained at no charge. However, the upload to SAFE Sports (required by PA Cal Ripken and Babe Ruth) costs $25.50. Follow the steps below to submit your clearances.
