The following paragraphs detail the CORI policy of Amesbury Little League. ALL is compliant with the Massachusetts General Laws that require CORI checks for an organization such as ours.

Our organization will request CORI on individuals that have expressed an interest to become a volunteer in the organization. One such volunteer position is coaching. Coaching positions within the league will be assigned based on available open positions as of date of team assignments.

The number of open positions is not clear until the registration of participants is completed, and the board determines the size of each team roster. Those that are not selected as coaches will still be allowed to volunteer in other capacities, thus still requiring a CORI check.
