It is the policy of Mokena Baseball / Softball Association (MBSA) to: communicate guidelines and related materials that are intended to foster safe experiences, and initiate risk management registration / background checks for adults participating in team management activities of its organization. Therefore adult volunteers (18 years and older) participating in the MBSA sanctioned role of Team Manager must have a background check.
Background Checks and Clearance to Participate in Activities
MBSA has developed a convenient, private, cost-effective way for you to fulfill the requirement of a background check. This on-line method is available to any adult who can complete ALL of the required information and affirmatively check the agreement box.
The information provided must be truthful and complete, and MBSA has the right to have the information verified by a third party company. Failure to provide complete and accurate information may result in your disqualification from volunteering in the MBSA program. Generally, risk management clearance will be provided within a few days of your submission, however, if the information you provide is not verified by the third party, YOUR RISK MANAGEMENT CLEARANCE WILL BE DELAYED.
MBSA will contact you if your background check reports either a criminal record or does not verify your personal information. During the time it takes to communicate with you to obtain the correct information, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO PARTICIPATE IN ACTIVITIES. Therefore, you are advised to CAREFULLY review the information you are submitting.
This system ensures that only authorized representatives have access to your personal information. As such, convictions and your social security number are only viewable by the MBSA Risk Management Administrator. Other administrators only have access to view if you have registered or not, and are eligible to volunteer or not. If your background check reveals information that would result in your disqualification, you will be sent a certified letter with a copy of the background check information.
