Volunteers play a vital role in our program. Thank you for your interest in volunteering.

Below is the info and links on the clearance requirements put into place with the 2019 chartering year by Babe Ruth/Cal Ripken Baseball. In order to be compliant with the State of PA we are required to have the following on file for every volunteer in our organization:

The following clearances are required by all volunteers:

1. Pennsylvania Child Abuse History Clearances (CY113) – Go to

2. Pennsylvania (State Police) Criminal Record Checks for Volunteers (SP4-164A).  Go to

3. Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) Criminal Background Check or Disclosure Statement Application for Volunteers who have lived in PA for more than 10 years.

4. Three items listed below using this site (cost of the Ripken requirements is $25.50 and has to be done through their portal). You will need PDF copies of your PA Child Abuse History, PA State Police Background Check and Disclosure Statement Application for Volunteers for upload into the portal.

1. National criminal database background screen
2. Sex offender registry search
3. Completion of online Sexual Abuse training

If you do not have a copy of your PA clearances which have already been submitted to UPYBA, please email Brian Carnesi at [email protected] and he will email you scanned copies. 

This screening is required for all Head Coaches, Assistant Coaches and Team parents…essentially anyone with frequent and direct contacts with kids and who will be on the field or in the dugout.
