Beginning with the 2024 Little League regular season, Abuse Awareness Training will be a mandatory part of the annual Little League Volunteer Application and background check.  During the “Safety Plan” submission process, leagues will be asked to provide information about how they are implementing and tracking this requirement in their local league program.

Each league must determine which Abuse Awareness Training its volunteers must complete (SafeSport, USA Baseball Abuse Awareness Training, Players Health, Praesidium, County or State Training, Other).  Our League is recommending USA Baseball’s BASE Abuse Awareness Training because it is a FREE online training that is SafeSport-compliant, and it facilitates tracking.  This course can be completed in approximately 30 minutes online.  Downloading your certificate is recommended, but our League plans to use the User Directory to track volunteer training completion.

When Central Vermont Little League (CVTLL) volunteers link their USA Baseball account with our local Little League, Central Vermont LL - Montpelier, VT, League volunteers can then search the USA Baseball Directory by Little League – Local League = Central Vermont LL - Montpelier, VT and find all CVTLL volunteers.   If you have an existing USA Baseball account, click your name in the top right corner, select MY ACCOUNT, and then UPDATE MY PROFILE to link your account with your local Little League.  More detailed instructions are linked here:
