Note: Only one background check a year is required. If you completed the JDP application in the spring, you are good for the year.
On an annual basis all coaches, managers and league volunteers must complete the volunteer application and submit to a background check. Starting in 2019 FNLL will be using a company, coordinated through Little League Baseball, called J.D. Palatine (JDP). The JDP QuickApp solution allows leagues to upload basic information (name and email address) so that volunteers can complete their own volunteer application and background check. All personal information is secured inside the JDP environment with no other sensitive, personal information released or visible to any third party.
The 4 step application process:
1.) Watch the video below.
2.) Click the green Register button below. We will ask for your name and email address.
3.) Wait for the email titled "FAIRFIELD NATIONAL LITTLE LEAGUE Background Questionnaire Notification" with a link to start the JDP application process. The link is only valid for 14 days.
4.) Follow link in email to JDP website and complete their application.
The video below explains the online volunteer application and background check process known as JDP's Volunteer QuickApp.

Note: A letter or email, which includes a copy of the completed background screening report & Summary of Rights, will be sent to every volunteer where a criminal record from the public records database is reported to your local Little League. A toll-free number is listed on the letter if the volunteer decides to dispute the information reported.
