Background Checks

Criminal Background Check Information

Please be advised that Lake Wales Little League obtains criminal background checks for volunteer managers, coaches, board members, assistant coaches, umpires and any other persons, volunteers and/or hired workers who provide regular services to or who have repetitive access to, or contact with, players or teams. Additionally, please be advised that the criminal background checks (conducted through JDP) include a state and federal criminal history with sex offender information. The criminal background check, which is conducted annually, does not include a subsequent arrest notification after the background check has been completed. Finally, please be advised that depending on the information provided by individual states, some background checks are conducted by name only. If an applicant’s name matches a criminal record or a name on a registry in one of these states, the applicant will be notified by mail of the match.

Please note this notification is required by law and does not mean the criminal record is now associated with your personal information. For additional information about Lake Wales Little League’s background check policy, please contact Lake Wales Little League or JDP’s Consumer Center at (844) 899-9424.

Per Lake Wales Little League's background check policy, all Volunteer Applications with sensitive information, copies of Driver's Licenses, and results of the background check are confidential and not open to the public. These sensitive materials are kept in a locked file cabinet behind two locked doors in a secure building of our Little League Complex. 

To submit a Volunteer Form for approval: please download the form, complete it in it's entirety including your social security number, and email the application along with a copy of your valid Driver's License to [email protected].
