Baseball Alberta now requires background screening (also known as a Criminal Record Check) of individuals involved in baseball who hold positions of trust. The policy is designed with the safety of all participants in mind. It specifically applies to coaches, team managers, umpires, team trainers and medical personnel, and chefs de mission. This includes these roles in teams in age categories up to and including the Junior (22U) age category. It may apply to other individuals as determined by Baseball Alberta or a Member Association based on an assessment of their role with children or youth and the nature of the situations where they interact with these individuals.

All individuals mentioned above who are 18 years or older as of May 1st of the current season, are required to complete Criminal Record Checks. Failure to complete the criminal record check by the start of the season may result in ineligibility of the individual for the full season.

A new Criminal Record Check is required every (3) three seasons. In addition, each individual in a position of trust must complete an application declaration form in years 2 and 3 of their background check to confirm nothing from the original check has changed.
