Jan. 3, 2013 - PRLog -- Monday, January 7th, ABC Youth Sports will be in Sacramento lobbying to find an author for the Safe at School, Safe on the Field bill.

Alliance for Background Checks in Youth Sports (ABC Youth Sports) is a coalition of individuals, organizations, government agencies, and community businesses who advocate on the behalf of our communities’ youth and sports programs.

ABC Youth Sports is asking California State Legislature to join the ranks of other states in their efforts to protect our children, and our community sports programs.  We call for a state-wide policy requiring all California youth sports league chapters to operate with the same background check requirements held by California public school sports programs.  We want our children to be safe at school and safe on the field.

Inconsistencies and lack of background checks of volunteer sports coaches allow individuals with criminal histories, including violent crimes and crimes against children, to obtain and hold positions in our local sports leagues.  Under these conditions, people with questionable backgrounds have access to hundreds of youth in their care, and can endanger these vulnerable members of our communities.

ABC Youth Sports invites you to join in our fight!  Contact us at info@abcyouthsports.org, 619. 7 S-P-O-R-T 6, www.abcyouthsports.org, or on Face Book!
