Interested in Coaching for the 2021 WCLL Season?

We are currently underway in fielding interest for potential coaches (and assistant coaches) for the upcoming 2021 WCLL Season. If you are interested in coaching a baseball, softball, or Challengers team, please visit the 2021 WCLL Coaches Registration page.

Mandatory Volunteering Information

Walnut Creek Little League requires many volunteers to be able to function.  We encourage everyone to find a way to volunteer so you can contribute to the league.  We require a refundable $200 deposit to encourage volunteerism with an exception for the Challenger division.  The deposit will be refunded upon accruing 10 volunteer points, as documented and verified within the refund form.  Refund forms are verified via signatures from managers, coaches, and/or board members. No partial refunds will be granted (i.e. at least 10 volunteer points will be required to receive a refund).

We understand that some cannot volunteer.  If your circumstances will not allow you to volunteer, you hereby understand and agree that the $200 volunteer deposit will not be refunded to you.

We truly appreciate your efforts in making WCLL a wonderful league.

**PLEASE NOTE:  The volunteer fees WILL NOT be returned if you have not completed your online background check.  Background checks are MANDATORY for all volunteers - this includes Board Members.**

Background checks are completed online.  All parents will receive an email upon completion of registration.  If you need the link resent to you, please email wcllvolunteers@gmail.com

Information Regarding Online Background Check

Little League® International has long been committed to the safety of its players, families, and volunteers, both on and off the field. To that end, all local Little League programs in the United States are required to conduct national criminal background checks, in addition to a search of the Department of Justice National Sex Offender Registry, for each volunteer with regular service to the league or repetitive access to children.

Beginning with the 2018 season, Little League® changed its provider to J.D. Palatine (JDP), which has access to more than 450 million records, which include criminal records and sex offender registry records across 50 states and the District of Columbia.

This is an online only procedure with a secure site that eliminates the need for completing, turning in and storing paper forms and private information. Volunteer candidates simply provide their full name and email address to the league’s board officer, the officer enters this information into the JDP system, and the candidate receives an email link with instructions to complete the background check. Once complete, the board officer receives approval (or denial) notification and the volunteer is ready to go.

The reports available to the board officer only show volunteer name, date ordered, and date completed. All social security or other private information is unavailable to the local board.  

Visit the JDP website if you would like additional information.
