Background Check Info

Little League International has established criteria for each chartered league's performance of an investigation into the background of all individuals who volunteer in any capacity. Each volunteer will be required to complete a volunteer application from and provide a copy of their photo identification. The minimum requirement for these background investigations is verification that volunteers are not registered sex offenders. In order to provide additional protection to the children of Alderwood Little League, we will submit a list of all volunteers to LexusNexus. A background investigation that will list any type of convictions nationwide will be completed. Each volunteer with Alderwood Little League will be required to have clearance of individual background investigations.
