Babe Ruth is committed to creating a safe and positive environment for its participant’s physical, emotional, and social development and to ensure that it promotes an environment free from abuse and misconduct.
League Rules which were modified to meet the standards of the Safe Sports Act:
- Rule 0.01, Paragraph 7 – Background Checks (Cal Ripken Baseball, Babe Ruth Baseball, Babe Ruth Softball) - Once a volunteer has successfully completed and passed background screening, it is valid for a two (2) year period.
- Rule 0.04 – Paragraph 5 (Cal Ripken Baseball, Babe Ruth Baseball, Babe Ruth Softball) – Babe Ruth League, Inc. rostered managers and coaches in all Divisions are required to complete coaching education, a nationwide background screening, and Abuse Prevention Training in accordance with the Safe Sports Act.
ALL COACHES MUST DO THE BACKGROUND CHECK AND ONLINE ABUSE PREVENTION TRAINING. THIS IS NOT A POINT PLEASANT POLICY BUT A NATIONAL STANDARD UNDER THE NEW SAFE SPORTS ACT. THERE WILL BE NO EXCEPTIONS.
IF YOU COMPLETED THIS LAST YEAR YOU ARE GOOD FOR THIS YEAR. IT IS VALID FOR 2 YEARS. IF YOU ARE UNSURE, PLEASE SEND US AN EMAIL AND WE CAN CHECK FOR YOU.
The Cost is $25.50. This is run by a third party and reported to our league, so please try to get this done right away. We will be picking teams on 3/23 so you MUST have this done before then in order to be a Manager/Asst Coach/Volunteer. You will find the background check in the registration process. See below.
YOU WILL BE PRESENTED WITH A LINK AT THE END OF YOUR BACKGROUND SCREENING REGISTRATION. PLEASE CLICK ON THE LINK TO CONTINUE ON TO THE TRAINING. YOU WILL ALSO RECEIVE AN EMAIL FROM SPORTSENGINE, WHICH CONTAINS THE LINK TO THE TRAINING. YOU MUST SUPPLY US WITH A PDF OF YOUR COURSE COMPLETION CERTIFICATE.
