The safety of players, volunteers, families and spectators
is a priority of the Serra Little League Board of Directors, managers and
coaches. Please make it your own priority, as well.
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, including
printed copies of the training materials, have been provided to each team and
must be brought to every practice and game. A larger First Aid kit is kept in
the cabinet above and to the left of the refrigerator in the Serra Snack Shack.
There are also three, white plastic, "Band Aid" boxes with the Snack Shack
First Aid kit that can be used 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
the Safety Officer
before they reach critical levels. An exchange of a seriously depleted First
Aid kit can also be requested from the Safety Officer.
As required by
Little League International, we perform 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
complete, physically sign and deliver a
Little League Volunteer Application together with a copy of
government issued photo ID to the Safety Officer.
It is the
responsibility of each manager, coach or administrator who uses volunteers to
verify with the Safety Officer that each such volunteer has passed the
screening requirements. At some point this season, we plan to implement a
limited trial of issuing ID Cards for some types of volunteers and creation of
a mechanism to directly verify volunteers with the master list of those
eligible to participate as volunteers.
