Background Checks for Temporary Replacement of Managers and Coaches


Temporary replacement of a manager or coach must be entered each time an individual serves as a temporary manager or coach. After the first time an individual serves as temporary replacement for a manager or coach at any level of tournament play, that individual cannot be used again in the tournament until a Little League® Volunteer Application is completed and the League President or Tournament Director conducts a background check in accordance with Little League regulations and any respective state laws.

Violations of these requirements are subject to action by the Little League International Tournament Committee in Williamsport, Pa. When a manager or coach is permanently replaced, his/her original space on Page 3 of the affidavit should be marked with a HEAVY black line. Once a manager or coach on the original affidavit is replaced, he/she cannot return to manage or coach the team. Exceptions can only be made in writing by the Tournament Committee.
