The mission of the Rancho Buena Vista Little League is to provide a safe, supportive environment for the children of our community in which to learn sportsmanship, teamwork, skills and a respect for the game of baseball.

The Managers and Coaches of Rancho Buena Vista Little League are the most important part of our organization. They are in a position to greatly determine the quality of each player’s experience. Rancho Buena Vista Little League strives to select those individuals for managing and coaching positions who will best exemplify the values of the Little League Baseball. The League will support the managers and coaches through coaching clinics, safety clinics and other activities designed to enhance their teaching and leadership skills and knowledge.

AS A CONDITION OF VOLUNTEERING, I give permission for the Little League organization to conduct background check(s) on me now and as long as I continue to be active with the organization, which may include a review of sex offender registries (some of which contain name only searches which may result in a report being generated that may or may not be me), child abuse and criminal history records. I understand that, if appointed, my position is conditional upon the league receiving no inappropriate information on my background. I hereby release and agree to hold harmless from liability the local Little League, Little League Baseball, Incorporated, the officers, employees and volunteers thereof, or any other person or organization that may provide such information. I also understand that, regardless of previous appointments, Little League is not obligated to appoint me to a volunteer position. If appointed, I understand that, prior to the expiration of my term, I am subject to suspension by the President and removal by the Board of Directors for violation of Little League policies or principles.
