CHILD ABUSE CHECK
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 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.
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.

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).
