League Development: Local leagues are encouraged to participate in the expanded 50-70 Pilot Program and District Staffs are asked to promote chartering this program. Here is information on the third year of the Pilot Program. http://www.littleleague.org/media/newsarchive/2011/Sep-Dec/LLOffers5070PilotProgram2012.htm. Contact the Little League International League Development Department - Dan Velte, Director of League Development and Affiliation, dvelte@LittleLeague.org; or Sam Ranck, League Development Manager, sranck@LittleLeague.org for assistance.

Background Checks: In addition to meeting the minimum requirement of checking the United States Department of Justice National Sex Offender Registry, (www.nsopr.gov), Little League strongly encourages all leagues to also utilize the national criminal records search available through the Little League website. Information on how to utilize this benefit, as well as how to conduct background checks, can be found on the Little League website, at: http://www.littleleague.org/learn/programs/childprotection.htm.

Background Checks/Insurance Claims: If requested to do so by the local league, all local league volunteers must provide their Social Security Number when completing their 2012 Little League volunteer application, which can be completed online and found on the Forms & Publications Page. An individual's Social Security Number is required for all background checks conducted through LexisNexis. An individual's Social Security Number also is required for all 2012 insurance claims, according to federal law. Regardless of whether the claimant is a child or adult, his/her Social Security Number will be required for processing.

2012 ASAP Information: The majority of the 2012 A Safety Awareness Program (ASAP) materials are currently available online at the Little League website. Find the information on the Forms & Publications Page.
