MYBA requires that ANYONE that plans to be on the field either at practice or in games, submit to a background check, and then be cleared by the Board to be on the field with the players. This includes the dugout.
Coaches should make wise judgement calls about their Coaching Staff and who they allow to help Coach the team. It is expected that both Coaches and Parents alike will help monitor that all individuals working with the players appear on the Approved To Coach List.
If you are the Head Coach or have been selected by your Head Coach to be on the field with the players, please follow the directions below to have your background check submitted. The search will include all public records associated with the information submitted. Please, only submit for a background check if you are going to be on the fields, as each background check performed results in a charge to MYBA.
It is VERY important that you read the directions carefully, and follow them precisely. You must make certain that every field of the form is completed, For any field on the form that does not apply to you, please type "N/A" in that field but don't leave it blank. You may want to print the directions out to use as a reference, before proceeding.
PLEASE MAKE CERTAIN YOUR NAME DOES NOT ALREADY APPEAR ON THE "APPROVED TO COACH LIST" BEFORE PROCEEDING
