GDYBL – Both Leagues

Important Info for Both Leagues

gdybl cori sori overview
  • Criminal Offender Record Information (CORI) and Sex Offender Record Information (SORI) checking is required for all volunteer organizations serving youth under age 18 by Massachusetts state law.
  • The law recognizes the conflict between an individual’s right to privacy and the need to protect children.
  • Every GDYBL adult volunteer, regardless of role, will be asked to authorize their criminal record to be sent to the GDYBL CORI Administrator (Steve Liljigren).
gdybl cori overview
  • The GDYBL Board of Directors has established a list of disqualifying offenses which would indicate that a person is not suitable to serve as a volunteer in the league.
  • The CORI data will be seen only by the CORI Administrator who will be committed to total secrecy, under threat of severe legal penalty.
  • Those having a disqualifying offense on their record who have not already stepped aside will be discretely asked to resign from any role in the league.
codes of conduct
Codes of Conduct
  • All coaches are required to read, sign, and abide by the Coaches Code of Conduct.
  • All parents and players are required to read, sign, and abide by the Player / Parent Code of Conduct. Coaches are to collect these from their players before the 1st game.
coaches code of conduct key points
