The American Legion’s National Executive Committee adopted Resolution 16 during the 2012 Fall Meetings. The resolution mandates a background check screening for coaches, managers and volunteer staff of junior and senior American Legion Baseball teams. This policy goes into effect Jan. 1, 2013, and requires background checks each season prior to any meetings, events, practices or games that involve youth participants. During the annual online baseball registration process, each coach, manager and volunteer staff of an American Legion Baseball team will have to have been verified as passing the mandated background check screening requirements for the upcoming season. The Legion has teamed up with Protect Youth Sports, Inc., to exclusively conduct background screenings of staff and volunteers for the Legion’s national programs, including baseball.
