The national USSSA office has contracted with an organization (JDP) as the background check service. When starting a new year, as an existing team Manager, when you log into the national USSSA web site, using your previous ID you will be prompted to re-register an existing previous team and once that is done you will be prompted to complete the JDP process for the next USSSA calendar year.
JDP background checks are done annually to coincide with the start of the new USSSA calendar year (Tuesday after the 2nd weekend in August) so any background check done prior to June 1st before the start of the next USSSA year will need to be redone.
Be sure and list each coach on the national web site's roster.
To add your coaches, after you log in on the national USSSA web site (www.usssa.com), you will:
1. Select the CURRENT team. 2. Click the Team Details & Photos link 3. Select "Manage My Coaches/Admins" 4. Add New Coaches Information and assign the permissions. Coaches will be emailed the JDP link to start their background check process.
To obtain the ID Badge each person must have completed and passed the JDP background check AND complete the CDC Concussion Training and once the background check is passed each person is to follow the below process:
Email, at one time, (once all items are complete), email@example.com with the below items once you have received notification that your JDP background check has been completed (We will be able to verify through the national office):
Photo copy of your driver’s license
Provide your cell phone number so we can text the picture of the badge to use until you receive the physical badge. The physical badge will be delivered to your next game.
Color JPEG of the photo you want on your ID badge. Unmodified or unfiltered, please.
Copy of the completed CDC Concussion Training Certificate. If you don’t have a copy you can print it from the CDC site. https://www.cdc.gov/headsup/youthsports/coach.html
Copy of the signed and current AAD/USSSA Code of Conduct
Make your $10.00 payment to the AAD Officials PayPal account.
To make the payment you’ll need to have a PayPal account and once logged in simply make the $10.00 payment to Amanda Coe's email address – firstname.lastname@example.org
The cost of these ID badges is NOT part of the team’s fees and are the responsibility of each manager/coach. Every person, 18 or older, on the field or in the dugout during any AAD/USSSA league game must have and wear an identification badge during each game. If you already have an ID Badge, from a previous league, you do not need to get another one until that badge expires.
ATTENTION ALL AAD/USSSA TEAMS
Effective July 1st 2018 any team or academy program that has in the past or with credible knowledge, plans in the future to violate, in the Albuquerque MSA, Article XVII, Section 7 (e) of the USSSA Constitution AND requests to participate in any AAD/USSSA event will require a Non-Compete Agreement (NCA) be enforce before being allowed to participate in any AAD/USSSA event.
This does not affect the individual participants eligibility. Each participant is welcome and encouraged to participate, just not on any team that has not meet the NCA requirement.
Contrary to propaganda distributed by some other event organizers, AAD nor USSSA has any restrictions on teams participating in non-USSSA sanctioned events. In fact, AAD/USSSA encourages all kids/teams to participate in their local Little League programs.
* Additional registration requirements may be required from teams with a history of Code of Conduct, AAD Policies or USSSA Constitution violations.
