Review Rules and Regulations: Schedule to meet with league presidents to review the new Little League Baseball® and Little League Softball® rules and regulations that will be in place for the 2014 season. The significant changes are available for review.
Little League® 75th Anniversary Guide: The Little League® 75th Anniversary Celebration Guide provides direction on how local leagues and districts can celebrate the diamond anniversary of Little League®. We encourage all D.A.s to speak with their local leagues about these opportunities and ask that they be made aware of the information available at LittleLeagueToolkit.org.
Get Technology Questions Answered for Your Leagues: Help your leagues by getting more information about the technology available to make your leagues run better. Little League® has partnered with ACTIVE Network to provide tools that specifically address the needs of your leagues, including online registration, online league management software and self-setup websites.
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 2014 Little League® volunteer application, which is available online. An individual’s Social Security Number is required for all background checks conducted through First Advantage. An individual’s Social Security Number also is required for all 2014 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. For more information on background checks watch a brief video presentation here.
