Cards are valid through 12/31/2020.
Again in 2020: In compliance with the 2017 Safe Sport Act, which has set higher standards of care to protect youth, Blue Springs Baseball has adopted a Child Abuse/Molestation Risk Management Program.
ALL managers, coaches, (including bench coaches), umpires, scorekeepers, volunteers, and staff are required to obtain BSB League Credentials - which includes a Background Check as well as awareness training on identifying various types of abuse/molestation and the tactics that are used by child predators..
The League Credentials/Background Check should be completed at least 2 weeks prior to the start of the season, allowing ample processing time.
The cost of League Credentials is $25 and must be completed prior to the dates below to avoid a $20 late fee:
April 15, 2020 (Divisions 5U - 14U)
May 15, 2020 (Divisions 15U - 18U)
August 26, 2020 (All Divisions)
Once your information has been verified, you have passed your background check, and you have confirmed you have completed the awareness training, BSB will issue your League Credentials. Please do not wait to do this as this process takes a few days to complete.
New this year, we will be taking photos and printing the credentials at a few of the General Meetings. We are hoping this will help to eliminate some of the confusion about where to pick up credentials. Please note - Your background check must be completed and approved before your credentials will be printed.
Please ensure you have your credentials with you at all times, when you are participating in a BSB practice, game, or tournament. Our umpires will be checking for League Credentials prior to each game and Board Members will be making random checks throughout the season - if you don't have credentials, you will not be permitted to coach, keep score, volunteer, or work for Blue Springs Baseball.
