All Volunteers Must Meet Fingerprinting & Background Check Requirements

The City Of Vineland requires all North Vineland Little League volunteers to be fingerprinted and to submit to a National Criminal Background Check to ensure the safety of its participants. The Fingerprinting and National Background Checks are being conducted and processed by a private company under contract with the State Of New Jersey.
To register for the fingerprinting and background check service, all volunteers must acquire a registration form from the North Vineland Little League President. To make arrangements to pick up the form, contact the clubhouse at 856-794-8806. The process is quick and easy and the verification is good for three (3) years.
"Check 'Em Out" was developed by the Megan Nicole Kanka Foundation to help non-profit sports organizations in New Jersey pay for state and federal fingerprint checks on their coaches and managers.New Jersey law allows non-profit organizations throughout the state to apply through the New Jersey State Police Bureau of Identification to have background checks done.

Because of the increasing awareness of child sexual abuse and newspaper accounts of coaches in New Jersey who were arrested for allegedly molesting children on their teams, the foundation created the "Check 'Em Out" Program to help pay for fingerprint background checks through grant funding.
In the event that an individual has a conviction on either the state or federal level, the State Police Bureau of Identification will notify the head of the organization that the individual has a record. The organization head is not given any personal information on the individual's conviction only that the individual is not recommended to coach.
