CHILD ABUSE CHECK



NEW UPDATE ..... CHILD ABUSE CHECK MUST be completed as part of your volunteer application.

For those of you volunteering as a team manager or coach (includes practice coaches), team mom/dad, umpire, grounds maintenance, board member, or any other position that would require you to be around the children daily. If you have a recent clearance from teaching or from other recent volunteer applications you can use submit that completed clearance. Those of you that don't have the certification you can go to the PA Child Welfare Portal and create an account to complete the check.

https://www.compass.state.pa.us/cwis/public/home

This is per PA Statue .... Section 6344.2 applies to an adult applying for or holding an unpaid position as a volunteer with a “program, activity or service”, as a person responsible for the welfare of a child or having direct volunteer contact with children. “Program, activity or service” is defined in part as a sports or athletic program in which children participate and which is sponsored by a school or a public or private organization.

Little League Registration



2016 Registration.

Registration for the 2016 Little League Season will be held on: Monday - January 25, Tuesday - January 26, Monday – February 1, and Tuesday – February 2, 2016 from 6 to 7:30 P.M. at the Minersville Fire Rescue Annex located at the intersection of Sunbury and 5th Street

Registration is open to boys born on or after May 1, 2003 through August 31, 2010 and girls born on or after January 1, 2003 through December 31, 2010 and live in the Minersville Area or attend a Minersville Area public or private school.  Players are to sign up for t-ball (age 6), minor league (ages 7 & 8),  major division baseball and softball (ages 9 - 12).

Registration fees are $30.00 for the first child and $20.00 for any additional children residing in the same household. What is required of the parent(s) at sign-up is a photo copy of the child’s birth certificate, medical release form, and 3 proofs of residency / or proof of school attendance for families who reside out of the Minersville Little League jurisdiction but attend Catholic or Private school in Minersville.

Candy Fundraiser - One of the fundraisers is a candy bar fundraiser (one box per family) during the season. We understand economic times are difficult and have also learned that many families simply purchase the candy bars themselves. So parents are being offered a “buyout” opportunity at sign-up time ONLY. To opt out of selling candy bars, an additional $30.00 (per family) would be required at sign-up. Again, this "buyout" opportunity is ONLY available at the time you sign up your child(ren).

New Age Determination for 2016 (BASEBALL only) 

For players born on or before April 30, 2005: The new age determination date of August 31 will be effective starting with the 2018 Little League Baseball Season. For the 2016 and 2017 seasons, these players will use the April 30 age determination date.

For players born between May 1, 2005 and August 31, 2005: The new age determination date of August 31 will be effective starting with the 2019 Little League Baseball Season. For the 2016, 2017, 2018 season, these players will use the April 30 age determination date.

For players born on or after September 1, 2005: The August 31 age determination date will be effective immediately, starting with the 2016 season. This was the implementation used for the 2015 season, with players turning 4 to 9 years old during the 2015 calendar year to use the December 31 age determination date. That implementation remains in place, except instead of using December 31, you will use August 31.
