Updated 2021 Coaches Information





Coaches Background Check Process (UPDATED March 2021 to comply with Babe Ruth League charter)
As required by the state of NJ and local regulation, coaches must have a current background check clearance and Rutgers SAFETY course completion in order to volunteer as a youth coach.  

IMPORTANT: In 2021, Babe Ruth League released updated national rule changes requiring that all managers, coaches, and league board members must have a National Verified Background Check and Abuse Prevention Training completed and approved through Babe Ruth League, Inc. every 2 years.  More specifically, the Babe Ruth League rule change requires chartered leagues, such as FRB, to use NCSI SportsEngine platform for ALL background checks and abuse prevention training. 
 
Accordingly, ALL 2021 volunteer coaches and FRB Board Members must complete the background check and abuse training process through the NCSI SportsEngine Platform.  This includes coaches with current background checks completed within the last 3 years via the old IdentoGO system.   No exceptions -- you will not be allowed to coach without completion and certification. 

To alleviate the burden of this new process, the FRB Board has elected to proactively cover the cost ($25.50) of the process for all 2021 coaches.  All coaches registered in the FRB system should receive an email from the FRB Board with the following instructions along with a prepaid code covering the cost of the background check and abuse prevention training.  

Background Check and Abuse Prevention Training Process:
(1) Go to Babe Ruth League's background screening registration page;
(2) Create an account;
(3) Complete the background check registration process using  the prepaid code provided by FRB to cover the cost;
(4) At the end of the background screening registration, you will be provided with a link to continue on to the required Abuse
Prevention Training (you will also receive an email from SportsEngine with this link).  Complete the training.
(5) FRB will receive updated reports directly from Babe Ruth League regarding completion status for all coaches.
