After reading all of that, you probably still have some questions. Here are the basic facts surrounding this federal legislation, and how it effects us here at DYB.
Signed into law on February 14, 2018, the Protecting Young Victims from Sexual Abuse and Safe Sport Authorization Act of 2017 (referred to simply as the Safe Sport Act on this page) requires all managers, coaches, board members, as well as any other persons/volunteers, who provide regular service to the league, and/or have repetitive access to, or contact with, players or teams, complete Awareness and Prevention Training.
The Awareness and Prevention Training program is broken into two pieces:
Click HERE for more Frequently Asked Questions regarding this process. This page also contains a link to initiate the background screening and the Awareness and Prevention Training via SportsEngine.
The background screening process can take up to 5 business days to complete, so we encourage all board members, managers, coaches, assistants, or anyone who anticipates having involvement in team activities in any significant way to please start this process as soon as possible so there are no disruptions to your ability to be involved.

In our continuing effort to support our vision of providing a best in class baseball experience for all our players and families, we are constantly looking for ways to help our volunteer coaches grow and succeed. USA baseball is once again offering free coaches clinics, with the help of the MLBPAA and Family & Children's Aid. There will be former MLB Players, and members of the MLBPAA speaking at these clinics.
All coaches who were selected as the head coach for a 2020 travel team (all ages 8-12) MUST attend one of the two clinics being offered in our area at this time. The clinics are free to attend and are open to ANY and ALL coaches who wish to attend. The Board at DYB is strongly encouraging ALL of our in house managers and coaches to attend one of these clinics as well.
