GHLL is using First Advantage, a Little League endorsed and recommended service, to perform our background checks this year.
First Advantage performs background checks that include state criminal and sex-registry history information and does not obtain subsequent arrest notification for those individuals.
The sex offender registry data in a few states is obtained through a Name-Only-Search and uses no other identifiers such as date of birth and/or social security number. If a criminal record is identified in any of these states that use Name-Only-Searches, that person will receive a report from First Advantage® showing that his/her name was identified on a criminal record. Please note, this may or may not be the person for whom the league is conducting a background check.
Please contact GHLL President, Gary Simkins, to obtain additional information about GHLL's background check policy.
