In accordance with Little League's Child Protection Program, all local leagues are required to conduct a nation-wide background check on managers, coaches, Board members, and other adult volunteers who provide regular service to the league and have regular contact with players. Massachusetts Law further requires that volunteers working with youth sports leagues undergo an additional screening (a CORI check) against the Commonwealth's database of criminal offenders.
In order to complete both background checks, volunteers must fill out two forms, the Little League Volunteer Application and the NLL CORI Acknowledgement Form and return these forms to the NLL Safety Officer (Jose Martinez) with a photocopy of your valid government issued photo ID. To coordinate this process, email

Unsportsmanlike or Disruptive Behavior
The NLL Board of Directors has adopted a policy regarding unsportsmanlike or disruptive behavior at NLL events. In doing so, we hope to maintain a positive, healthy environment where all children may thrive, and all children, as well as adults, may feel safe to enjoy the game. If you have any questions regarding the league policy, please contact the League President,
