Volunteer Information

Baltimore County Government is invested in increasing the safety of participants and families while they are participating in Recreation and Parks activities and programs.  We are extending our efforts to include conducting background investigations for all volunteers who participate in Recreation/Nature Council, Therapeutic, PAL., and other County-sponsored recreation programs.

The background investigation will be conducted by a nationally recognized security screening firm, SSCI.  This screening will include a review of each applicant's criminal history and the development of an investigative report.  The results of the investigation will determine each volunteer's eligibility to volunteer in our programs.  To protect the privacy of all volunteers in the program, Baltimore County staff will not have access to any detailed information regarding this background screening.  SSCI will only provide a list of passed applicants to Recreation and Parks staff.

This program is a preventive measure.  It is not meant to take the place of parental involvement and participation.  It is meant to work in partnership with parental efforts to ensure that their children and all constituents enjoy programs and activities in a safe environment.

Who must complete the background investigation:

•             Board of Recreation and Parks Members

•             Recreation/Nature Council Board Members

•             Recreation/Nature Council Chairpersons

•             Head and Assistant Coaches

•             Instructors and Assistant Instructors

•             Volunteers who have care, custody or control of children

Thunderstorm Policy Reminder

A reminder...It might be sunny right now! but thunderstorms are predicted...  Just a reminder of the policy for thunderstorms while on the fields.

1 rumble of thunder/lightning - off the field for 30 minutes.

DO NOT go back on to the field for 30 minutes from the LAST rumble of thunder/lightning.

DO NOT wait by the backstop.

DO NOT wait under a tree.

Everyone must wait in their cars.
 
The official Baltimore County Department of Recreation and ParksPolicy is:
Upon the first sound of thunder or sighting of lightning all in attendance at the outdoor activity should immediately go to their cars or enter a building. No one will be allowed to resume play until 30 minutes after the last sound of thunder and/or the last sighting of lightning. Recreation staff has complete authority to enforce this policy at a Baltimore County facility. In the absence of recreation staff, volunteer coaches and officials must follow this policy.

WEATHER? FIELD CONDITIONS?

Parks & Rec decides if our fields are playable or not.  If they state that all outdoor activities are cancelled (regardless of the weather at that time) - we are CANCELLED. 

To check for any cancellations - there are three options...These are all updated in the event of changes by 4PM.

Call Parkville Rec Weather Line for a recorded message - 410-372-8169

Text PRCSOFTBALL to 84483.  This will opt in to a text message for cancellations/changes.
