Baseball is a great game when it can be learned and enjoyed
to its fullest. We want to make Little League baseball a safe and enjoyable
experience that the players and their families will remember for a lifetime.
Sunnyvale Little League follows the guidelines set by LL international for
safety preparedness and training as well as the regulated background checks
that are also now required by CA state law.
As required by Little League International (Regulation I(c) 8), we will be performing
background checks on volunteers to prevent those who would pose a danger to our
children from associating with the program. If you intend to participate as a
volunteer, it is mandatory that you completely fill out the Little League
Volunteer Application online thru the JDP quick app process (see below).
Sunnyvale Little league will begin using this JDP process beginning in the
Spring season of 2019. This together with in person verification of a copy of
government issued photo ID to the Safety Officer/League Official.

Safety on the Field
The safety of players, volunteers, families and spectators is a priority of
the Sunnyvale Little League Board of Directors, managers and coaches. Please
make it your own priority, as well.
Sunnyvale LL provides training for
all managers, coaches and board members. We provide the training materials,
available to everyone, on this website so that we can all be observant for
possible safety issues and be ready to assist anyone injured during a game or
practice. First Aid kits have been provided to each team and must be brought to
every practice and game. A larger First Aid kit is kept in both Snack Shacks
(Serra Park & De Anza Park).
All uses of the First Aid kits should
be logged and more significant events should be reported through the
Safety Incident Reporting
Process. As supplies are used, replacement materials must be requested from
Officer before they reach critical levels. An exchange of a seriously
depleted First Aid kit can also be requested from the Safety Officer.
