As part of its ongoing efforts to prevent child abuse, Henry County requires everyone, including coaches and other volunteers 18 years of age and older, to obtain a background check. Background checks are required regardless of the length of time someone has been associated with North Henry Youth Baseball, or youth sports in general, and must be renewed annually.
Upon successful completion of the background check, a personalized clearance card with the person's name and photograph will be issued. This card should be carried at all times, and is required to be obtained before being permitted to be on the field, in the dugout, etc. when any child(ren) other than their own are present. Should someone be asked to present a clearance card and they cannot do so, they will be asked to immediately leave the field or dugout areas, and may be subject to penalties up to and including arrest.
