Sports Connect and JDP Make It Easier, More Efficient for Local Leagues, Districts to Conduct Registration and Background Checks.
Sports Connect, the official league technology provider of Little League® Baseball and Softball (formally Blue Sombrero), 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.
This integration of these technologies allows for the registration of volunteers and the initiation of their background checks to be done directly through Sports Connect. This eliminates the need for a volunteer to reenter into the JDP QuickApp any of the information that they already provided during registration, thus saving time and increasing the likelihood that the background check application will be completed. The search results produced through the JDP QuickApp tool meet Little League’s base background check requirements. As was the case previously, this process may not necessarily satisfy any state-mandated background check requirements, but the integrated process can be used to also track those inquiries.
