Volunteer Background Checks

Pittsburgh's 14th Ward Youth Baseball Association is committed to the safety of our players.  We are affiliated with the national Babe Ruth League baseball organization which utilizes background screening by NCSI for our coaches, directors, and contractors.  Background Screening by NCSI is the Gold Standard in youth and amateur sports because of the quality of service provided by NCSI and the depth of the background check. Unlike most discount screens, NCSI will do an in-depth identify verification, search over 800 million records from the national multi-jurisdictional databases, and sex offender registry, and then go to the local state and county searches. This is a key component missing from many discount searches, as many localities do not consistently report up to the national database providers. NCSI will then always do a thorough quality control review on the report before sending results back to the customer.

What is the process for Pennsylvania background screens?

In addition to the Gold Standard background check, 14th Ward Youth Baseball Association coaches, directors, and contractors remain compliant with Pennsylvania Act 153 of 2014. This Act requires that any adults who come into contact with children while serving in Pennsylvania, either as paid employees or unpaid volunteers, provide the following clearances before participating:

    • Criminal History Record Search from the PA State Police (PATCH) system.
    • Child Abuse Clearance obtained through the PA Department of Human Services.
    • One of the following:
      1. FBI Fingerprint screening submitted through the PA State Police
      2. Signed Volunteer Affidavit (volunteers with continuous residence in PA for the past ten years)
