Player Safety

The safety of players and anyone that attends a Turlock National Little League event is top priority. It is important to understand that safety is "everyone's job". Prevention is the key to keeping accidents to a minimum.  Players should wear Little League-approved helmets and other equipment to keep them safe while playing.

Little League Child Protection Program

In accordance with Little Leagues' Child Protection Program, all leagues (including Turlock National Little League) are required  to conduct background checks on managers, coaches, board of directors members and any other persons, volunteers or hired workers, who provide regular service to the league and/or have repetitive access to, or contact with, players or teams. Individuals are also required to complete and submit a Little League Volunteer Application to their local league. Select from the links below to learn more about this vital aspect of Little League’s mission.

Accidents

Turlock National Little League is committed to providing a fun, safe, quality experience for all of the players, coaches, umpires, volunteers and families that participate in our league.

  • Any accident/incident involving a player, manager, coach, umpire, volunteer or spectator that leads to medical treatment and/or first aid, should be reported to the leage Safety Officer within 24 hours.  [email protected]
  • ALL incidents that have caused harm or could potentially cause harm to a player, manager, coach, umpire, volunteer or spectator need to be reported on an Incident Tracking Form and turned in to the Safety Officer ASAP.  The Incident tracking form is a way for us to keep a record and report safety hazards that may be contributing to injuries.
  • If an accident occurs that requires medical treatment, the coach, player’s parent/guardian and the league's safety officer need to complete an Accident Notification Form and forward it to Little League International within 20 days of the accident.  Instructions for filling out an Accident Notification Form can be found here.  Additional information about "What Parents Should Know About Little League Insurance"can be found here.

**Any player who sustains an injury that requires professional medical care must have a written note from their medical professional stating when they are allowed to return to regular baseball/softball practices and games.  Players will not be allowed to participate in TNLL activities until such note is turned in to the Safety Officer.
