JDP/Sports Connect Integration FAQ’s

About the Integration

Sports Connect (formerly Blue Sombrero), the Official League Technology provider of Little League® Baseball and Softball, and J.D. Palatine (JDP), Little League’s Official Background Check Provider, have integrated their technologies to make the volunteer registration process easier by including the ability to conduct national background checks on local and district volunteers.

These technologies allow for the process of registering volunteers and the initiation of their background checks to be done directly through Sports Connect. This eliminates the need for a volunteer to re-enter any of the information that they already provided during registration into the JDP QuickApp, thus saving time and increasing the likelihood that the background check application will be completed.


Below is a list of common questions and their answers that will likely assist you in understanding this integration and how it can be used to benefit a local Little League or District.
