Background Check

UpdatedWednesday March 11, 2020 byKYBSA.

KYBSA conducts a background check on all managers, coaches, team parents, board members, as well as any other persons/volunteers, who provide regular service to the league, and/or have repetitive access to, or contact with, players or teams.

This is done in an effort to create a safe environment where kids can have a positive and rewarding experience playing baseball or softball.

KYBSA uses the USA Baseball platform to conduct a standard check.  This check is performed by JD Palatine

The Standard Background Check includes an SSN ID Search, a JDP National Criminal Search (+ Developed Names - All Hits Confirmed at County Level Included) and a JDP National Sex Offender Records Search.
