Volunteer Requirements


The Babe Ruth League/Ripken Baseball Coaching Certification Program is developed and delivered by the American Sport Education Program in conjunction with Babe Ruth League, Inc. and Ripken Baseball, Inc.

Coaching Certification is required for all managers and coaches in Babe Ruth baseball and softball.  Baseball certifications are good for softball, and softball certification is good for baseball.



All Volunteers are required to complete background screenings.  This includes, our Board Members, Managers, Coaches and Team Mom's.  These screenings are required every two years.  National Center for Safety Initiatives (NCSI) is the website that we will be using for these screening.  Please see the information below to complete your screening.  Please note that this must be completed prior to being on the field with the players.

VARINA YOUTH SPORTS, INC. welcomes you to background screening with National Center for Safety Initiatives (NCSI). Please follow the directions below to start the online registration process.

Simply go to and click on "Applicant Submission and Status Check" in the upper-right corner of our homepage.

Complete three easy steps:

STEP 1: Enter Self Registration Number: 98698371
STEP 2: Enter Your Information as Requested
STEP 3: Provide Legal Authorization and Certification

It is important when entering your name, that you use your full legal name as written on your current ID (state driver's license, passport or state ID with name and DOB). Please also verify that your social security number was typed correctly. Using nicknames or failing to type a correct social security number may delay or invalidate your background check.

NCSI will contact you directly if there are any questions, problems or issues related to your specific information. An email address is required when completing the background check as our contact with you will largely be electronic. Please be sure to add to your list of acceptable domains in your email program to receive notifications from us.



This year, all volunteers (Board Members, Managers, Coaches and Team Mom's) are required to complete the updated Safe Sport Compliant Course of Abuse Awareness for Adults.  This does not take the place of the courses that were taken last year.  EVERYONE must take this course this year as well, even if you took the courses last year.  This course can be found on the website.  For returning volunteers, this is the same website that was used for the courses that we took last year.  For our new volunteers, please register an account on the website and go to courses.  You will then search for "Abuse Awareness fir Adults."  Place this in your cart.  This is a FREE online class.  You should be able to choose the "No Ship" Option and checkout.  Once you checkout, you should be able to complete the course.  This course must be completed prior to practices.  Once you have completed, please forward a copy of your certificate to your Division Director.  You should be able to save a PDF version of your Certificate and forward it via email or via text.  If you have any issues with this, please feel free to reach out.
