Click on the question to reveal answer.
Due to new Pennsylvania law changes this year, ANYONE who would like to volunteer within the GABSA organization this 2016 season will need to complete a 4-step background verification process. Each of these 4 steps can be completed by you in 5-10 minutes each, however it’s possible one or more of these items could take 1-2 weeks to have the results returned. With that in mind, the GABSA Board of Directors encourages anyone who would like to volunteer this 2016 season to begin this process as soon as possible. Items 1-3 in the list below are valid for 60 months once completed, so once we have these on file it is not required to repeat every year. Item number 4 (Little League Volunteer application) will be required for completion every year.
