    All the steps below must be submitted BEFORE volunteers begin volunteer activities (including any practices, meetings or games.)  The Little League Volunteer Application can be completed through our system by following these steps:

    Step 1: Little League Volunteer Application

    All volunteers are required to complete a Little League Volunteer Application each year.

    1. Log into your Morrisville Little League Account

    2. Click “Volunteer” on the left-hand side of the page.

    3. Click “Find Volunteer Roles” on the right-hand side of the page.

    4. Select your role and complete the form.  Please attach a copy of your Driver’s License to the form.

    Step 2: Little League International Background Check

    Once the volunteer application is complete, Morrisville Little League will process the application.  Each volunteer will receive an email to complete a brief form to proceed with the background check.  Please complete and submit the form when you receive it.

    The screening includes the JDP National Criminal Search, plus Developed names, and collects data from more than 685 million criminal records, sex offender registries in 50 states, OFAC, FBI Terrorist List, Proprietary Offender Data, Department of Public Safety, Administrative Office of the Courts, Department of Corrections, Federal/State/Local wanted fugitive lists, as well as searches of the SafeSport Centralized Disciplinary Database and Little League International Ineligible/Suspended List.

    Step 3: Pennsylvania State Clearances

    Each volunteer that works with youth participants in Morrisville Little League is required by Pennsylvania Law to complete clearances.  Details of each required clearance and how to obtain them are below.  Please note that the requirements for the FBI Criminal History Clearance depend upon where you lived during the past 10 years.  Select the option that applies as described below.

    1.  Pennsylvania Child Abuse History Clearance (Cost: Free for Volunteers) (Valid for 5  years)

    2.  Pennsylvania State Police Criminal History Clearance (Cost: Free for Volunteers every 57 months)

    3a. If you've lived in Pennsylvania during the last 10 years: Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) Affidavit

    3b. If you've lived outside of Pennsylvania at any period during the last 10 years:
    Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) Criminal History Clearance (Cost: $22.60)
    Digital Fingerprinting Service Code: 1KG6ZJ (Pennsylvania DHS Volunteer)

    Once you have obtained these clearances, please email them to Brad Fryer, MLL Safety Officer at [email protected].

    Morrisville Little League will review all volunteer applications, background checks, and clearances to ensure volunteers meet the standards and policies set forth by Little League International.  Little League International, through District Administrators and the League's Board of Directors, may deny individuals the privilege of volunteering for reasons, past or present, that may be detrimental to the postive development of young people, other volunteers, and/or Little League International.
