VOLUNTEER HEAD & ASSISTANT COACHES – 2017

Thank you so much for coaching to volunteer your time.

There are requirements that both Little League International and the State of Pennsylvania need us to take care of for you to be approved as a volunteer who will be interacting with children.

ARE YOU A RETURNING VOLUNTEER?

If you coached in Devon Strafford Little League last year and submitted clearances, you only need to complete a 2017 Little League Returning Volunteer Application.  Once completed, upload here.  There is no cost to you. 

ARE YOU A NEW VOLUNTEER?

New coaches need to obtain the following documents . Once completed, upload here

1.    2017 Little League Volunteer Application

2.    Pennsylvania State Police Criminal Record Check (valid for 5 years).  Please note browser requirements. 

3.   Pennsylvania Child Abuse History Clearance (valid for 5 years).  Please note browser requirements. 

4.     a.  Volunteer Affidavit for volunteers who have lived in PA for ALL of the past 10 years (valid for 5 years)

         or

        b.  FBI Criminal History Clearance for Volunteers who have not lived in PA for all of the past 10 years (valid for 5 years)

If you have obtained Clearances 2, 3, or 4 in the past for another volunteer role, like TEYSA, Paoli Wildcats, or TESD, these approvals are valid for our league and just need to be uploaded in accordance with the submission requirements above.

There is no cost to you for Clearance 1.

Effective July 25, 2015, the fees for obtaining Clearances 2 and 3 have been waived for volunteers by the State of Pennsylvania.

The fee for clearance 4 is $27.50.  Devon Strafford Little League will reimburse you for any required compliance fees, not to exceed $50.00.

MANDATORY  REPORTING OBLIGATIONS 

All volunteers are required to submit the clearances described above and are considered 'Mandatory Reporters' under Pennsylvania law. You should familiarize yourself with these requirements here.  Mandatory reporters are obligated to make an immediate and direct report of suspected child abuse to ChildLine by calling 1-800-932-0313. After making the report to ChildLine, you are required to immediately thereafter notify Devon Strafford Little League.  In addition, if you are arrested for or convicted of an offense that would constitute grounds for denying participation in the Devon Strafford Little League programs, or are named as a perpetrator in the statewide database, you must notify the Devon Strafford Little League in writing within 72 hours.

If there are additional coaches or volunteers that will be working with children in our league that we are unaware of, please let me know.

Thank you for your prompt actions requiring this important matter.

If you have any questions, please contact me at
