Background Checks

Minnesota Legion Baseball requires ALL coaches and managers to complete an annual background check in accordance with the National Rules of American Legion Baseball.

We have set up a direct link for all Minnesota Coaches and Managers. You can access the link by clicking HERE.

All Legion Managers, Coaches and Team Volunteer Staff must undergo Background Screening, before beginning any 2018 Season Activities.

Beginning with the 2013 season, the National American Legion made it mandatory that all team Managers, Coaches, Assistant Coaches -- and other volunteer staff who meet certain criteria -- must undergo annual background screening, prior to engaging in any meetings, events, practices or games that involve youth participants. 


To ensure consistency and protect confidentiality, all screening must be conducted by one designated vendor ("Protect Youth Sports"); if an individual has previously undergone background screening through/for another organization, those results may not be substituted. The cost of each individual's background screen will be billed to, and paid by, Minnesota American Legion Baseball.  Those who do not complete it -- or who fail the screening -- are ineligible to particiapte.
