Hudson Boosters

2018 Coaching/Volunteer and Background Screen



Welcome to the 2018 Coaching/Volunteer & Background Screening Registration with Hudson Boosters!

In this session, you will be asked information, which will be used to conduct a background screening, conducted by SportsEngine Safety.

In addition this session serves as the way for you to register yourself as a coach or volunteer for the Hudson Boosters, and filling out this registration is REQUIRED to receive the DIBS waiver.

All Coaches:

This registration is meant for coaches to register themselves with Boosters and agree to the coaching policies of the club, both in-house and traveling.  This applies to anyone coaching for Boosters, T-Ball level and higher.

Coaches/Team Managers who need Dibs credit:

If you have one or more baseball or softball players at the 3rd grade or higher level (Junior League and up, or 10U and up) then you automatically have a Dibs committment.  Booster policy is to waive this for our coaches up to the 12 hour family maximum.  Filling out this registration is mandatory to have that Dibs requirement waived.

Other volunteers/club members:

Additionally, those who volunteer time for the Boosters OUTSIDE OF THE DIBS SIGN-UP SYSTEM must also fill out this background check registration.  

Dibs/volunteer requirements in 2018 - 6 Hours per player, with a family maximum of 12 hours

In 2013 the Hudson Booster club added a volunteer requirement to our baseball & softball registrations.  Running the Booster baseball and softball leagues takes a tremendous amount of behind the scenes work which is entirely done by volunteers.  We feel by getting more volunteers involved, the work it takes to run the programs can be spread out amongst the families that benefit from the youth sports experience.  Then more bandwidth can be applied to improving these programs even further – field maintenance & improvements, increasing the training for coaches & umpires, running more regional tournaments, etc.  By getting involved, families will gain a greater appreciation of everything the Boosters do for the youth and community as a whole.  Volunteer programs have become common among youth sports programs, as both Hudson Soccer and Hudson Hockey run similar programs.

The Booster club has set the requirements for 2018 at 6 hours per player with a family maximum of 12 hours.  

NEW for 2018 -

  • Dibs is now tracked within one calendar year, January 1  to November 1.  
  • Families not fulfilling their DIBS hours by November 1 will be charged $249 for 6 hours, up to $499 for a family requirement of 12 hours.
  • This payment will be deducted on November 15 from the same account used to register your children in our Booster programs.

All traveling programs, plus in-house programs 3rd grade and above will have this requirement.  Tee-ball and machine pitch leagues do not have this requirement.

Coaches, assistant coaches, and team managers who have been selected and are on the roster as a coach/manager and have completed the background check will have their DIBS/volunteer hours WAIVED.  This is a great chance for you to volunteer, teaching sportsmanship and game skills to the youth of Hudson.
