MANDATORY CLEARANCES


We strongly urge you to complete the clearance applications ONLINE, using a credit card; rather than by mail using a cashiers check.  Results can be obtained within a few days when applying online; whereas, mail applications can take up to 6 weeks to be processed and returned to you.

Volunteers requiring clearances will also need to attend a mandatory league meeting to become mandated reporter certified (see dates HERE).  ORIGINALS of all clearances must be brought to the mandatory meeting.  Badges will be issued and MUST be worn at EVERY practice, game, or other league event.  Failure to wear the badge will result in fines and suspensions.  NO ONE without a badge will be allowed on the field for practices, games, or any other event.  If for some reason you feel you will need access to the field but do not fall under the categories requiring clearances please see your Athletic Director prior to taking any other action.
