The safety of all children participating in Downers Grove Youth Baseball has always been the number one priority of the board of directors of DGYB.
On February 14, 2018 the “Protecting Young Victims from Sexual Abuse and Safe Sports Authorization act of 2017” was signed into law and became effective immediately.
We are required to have back ground checks of all managers and coaches which DGYB was already administering. We will continue to have this program as a requirement to manage and coach for DGYB. We are also required to have a safe sports policy in place, which we have included links on our site. All volunteers will receive this plan along with educational documentation.
Also, please find the following links on our site: Parents Guide to Child Abuse/Molestation Risk Management Program along with the Abuse/Molestation risk Management Program document. Before the season begins these programs will be discussed with the coaches and they will sign off that they have received this information.
