READ BELOW FOR DETAILS

Thank you for volunteering with Burbank Little League. We believe in the power of youth baseball and softball to teach life lessons that build stronger individuals and communities. We are 100% volunteer-run by parents and Burbank community members just like you!

Background Check / Live Scan

A major part of our responsibility as volunteers is to keep the children safe. To that end, all volunteers must pass a background check and complete a Live Scan.

- The Little League-required background check will be emailed to you shortly after you complete registration. This will consist of an email questionnaire and authorization.

- The Live Scan must be completed by completing this form and taking it to a Live Scan provider. We have partnered with Pak & Ship All on San Fernando Blvd and if you complete your Live Scan at this location it will be at no cost to you. We will also try to arrange for a mobile Live Scan service to attend our Coach Safety Training event on February 3rd, which will also be at no cost to you. All volunteers must complete a Live Scan specifically for Burbank Little League this season, regardless of any Live Scans you may have done for any prior organization/year.

Training/Certifications

There are three (four if you are a Head Coach) required training courses that all volunteers must complete prior to the start of the season: Concussion, Abuse Awareness, and Sudden Cardiac Arrest. This training is required to be completed every year. In addition, head coaches have a new additional training requirement, the Little League Diamond Leader Certification. Information on the required training, and how to upload your completed course certificates, is below.

IMPORTANT: When you complete these courses, you must upload the certificates to the following Google Drive location: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/18lqXwxeEEcuhdyv4XYEmydtei0XDD7mx?usp=sharing

Please note that this training is now required every year, so a prior year’s certificate will not be accepted. When uploading, PLEASE use the following naming convention for your uploaded files: “LASTNAME_TYPEofCERT_DATEofCERT”.

examples: SMITH_CONCUSSION_110923, SMITH_ABUSE_110923, or SMITH_CARDIAC_110923

If you have trouble uploading the certs, please email them to [email protected]
