What is required of all Babe Ruth volunteers?

All volunteers will be required to have an annual Babe Ruth League Membership. Within that membership, the following Eligibility Credentials will be required every two years.

  1. "Gold Standard" background screen, available through SportsEngine/NCSI
  2. Abuse Prevention Training, available through SportsEngine's APS Training
  3. Waiver

How do volunteers complete the required items?

  • A League will first need to Claim their HQ before any coaches or volunteers can obtain a membership
    • This only needs to happen the first year the League is on SportsEngine 
  • A League can share their Direct Membership Link (anyone with the link can register), send a Direct Request (registrant must be in your Directory), or obtain memberships "on behalf of" members. For more detailed instructions, click Need Help? and search for these walkthroughs:
    • Babe Ruth - Share a Public Membership Link 
    • Babe Ruth - Send a Direct Club Assignment Invite from the Member Directory
    • Babe Ruth - Buy Memberships on Behalf of Members

Note: Please use the correct email address for the staff member. Failure to do so will result in technical consequences that lead to member duplicates or merging complications.

What link do I send my coaches/volunteers to submit their background screens?

Background screens are now within the concept of memberships. Coaches and volunteers will get the same link and this link is specific to the league. 

To find the membership link, look within HQ--> Members--> Memberships. For more detailed instructions, find this walk-through in the Need Help? tab.

  • Babe Ruth - Share a Public Membership Link 

How do I cover the cost for my volunteers?

The $25.50 cost covers the background screen. If a League Admin wants to pre-pay for bulk codes (good for one season) for their coaches, you may submit through the following registration link. 

As a league admin, how do I track results for my volunteers?

This can be done on the Leagues HQ under the Members > Membership Tab. Select the 'three ellipses' and see which members are eligible.  For those members still needing to complete eligibility requirements, you can easily send them reminders from the system.

For more information, search for these walk-throughs in the Need Help? section: 

  • Babe Ruth - What are Eligibility Reminders
  • Babe Ruth - Send Eligibility Reminders to Staff


Pending Status for Background Screens: 

Please allow 5 business days for pending screens to be processed.  

If a screen has been pending for more than 5 business days, your coach may contact the NCSI Screening division directly at for any questions.
