Background Checks

All Volunteers must be complete a mandatory background check.

This includes: Managers, Coaches, Team Coordinators, Concessions and Volunteer Team Parents.

Background checks will be completed through JDP Background Screening.  Screening can be accessed through the AHLL website.  The background will include checks from the Department of Justice’s nationwide sex offender registry and supplemental criminal records.

Individuals who have not been cleared or refusing the check will be excluded from participation with AHLL.

 

Coaching Fundamentals Training

At least one (1) Manager or Coach from each team must attend a fundamentals training program (hitting, sliding, fielding, pitching and practice planning).  Training qualifies the volunteer for three (3) years, but one team representative is still required yearly to attend. 


First Aid Clinic

At least one (1) Manager or Coach from each team must attend first aid and safety training.  This is mandatory. Training qualifies the volunteer for three (3) years, but one team representative is still required yearly to attend.  First aid, CPR/ AED, hydration, basic recognition of little league shoulder/ elbow and EMS activation were some of the topics covered.  Review of California state concussion law.  Concussion training provided using the Centers for Disease Control website (headsup.cdc.gov) as AHLL protocol.

A First Aid Kit will be issued to each team and will be required to have it during all practices/ games.

Concession Stand Safety

*Current policies are unchanged, however, due to COVID-19, concession stand will not be open until further notice.  Please see COVID guidelines section of this plan.

Written safety procedures for concession stand; concession manager trained in safe food handling/ prep and procedures will be posted in the snack bar.

Food Preparation and Snack Bar Safety

The consideration for safety in food preparation is of extreme importance.  The ramifications of lax safety procedures can be very great, with potential liability issues extending beyond the league. 

There are several basic tenets that must be observed while preparing food, as well as safety procedures within the physical confines of the snack bar itself.  Once again, the philosophy of “prevention”, or being proactive is the most advisable position. 

The basic food preparation tenets include:

1.      Clean:  wash hands and food contact surfaces

2.      Separate:  don’t cross-contaminate

3.      Cook: cook to proper temperatures

4.      Chill: refrigerate promptly

 

 

 

All Volunteers must wash hands.  Wash after:

1.      Using the toilet

2.      Touching uncooked meat

3.      Taking out the trash

4.      Touching soiled plates, utensils or cooking equipment

5.      Sneezing or coughing

Do not touch ready to eat foods with your bare hands.  Wear gloves and change them as often as needed.

 

 

 

 

Basic safety procedures while working the snack bar include:

1.      Only those authorized shall be allowed inside the snack bar; small children shall not be inside during business hours. 

2.      Working assignments shall be made to ensure proper operation of machinery and appliances.  These will be limited to those individuals adequately trained.

3.      Persons handling food shall wear plastic gloves.

4.      Spills shall be cleaned up promptly to avoid accidental slipping.

5.      Operating the cash drawer shall be limited to a minimum number of responsible persons. 

6.      Ensure training has been conducted and all persons are aware of all potentially hot surfaces; i.e. coffeepot surface plate and hot dog roller.  

 

The individual topics below identify specific areas in which proper safety and hygiene considerations will significantly reduce the potential for causing or spreading food-borne illnesses.  Initial training and subsequent periodic review by those working in the Anaheim Hills Little League Snack bar is encouraged so that the awareness of these issues remains fresh.

 

 

Time and Temperature Make a Difference

Time and temperature influence the growth of bacteria. Bacteria growth can cause food poisoning. Like other living things, bacteria need: (1) food to grow on, (2) warmth, (3) moisture and (4) time to grow and multiply.

A standard rule, recommended by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is to keep hot foods hot (above 140° F.) and cold foods cold (below 40° F.). The "dangerous temperature zone" is between the temperatures of 41 to 139° F. At danger zone temperatures, bacteria can double their numbers every 20 to 30 minutes. Food may not be safe to eat if you hold it for more than two to three hours at the danger zone temperature range where bacteria can rapidly multiply.

Food can reach the two (2) to three (3) hour time limit cumulatively. For example, cooked meat left for one hour at room temperature, refrigerated, then left out for another hour (without proper reheating) is the same as leaving it out for two consecutive hours. Refrigerating or freezing cooked meat stops bacteria from increasing, but any bacteria already on the meat will remain alive. These bacteria will multiply when you put the meat back into the danger temperature zone.

This means cooked foods should be rapidly cooled to refrigerator temperatures below 40° F. Reheat quickly to temperatures above 160° F.

Check the refrigerator and freezer periodically. Keep the refrigerator at about 40° F. and the freezer at 0 ° F. Use a thermometer to be sure.  Thaw meat in the refrigerator. Do not thaw food on the kitchen counter at room temperature. For faster thawing, place frozen packages in a watertight plastic bag under cold water and change the water often.

Remember, keep foods out of the danger zone temperature. Keep cold foods cold at 40° F and hot foods hot above 140° F, and remember to figure time periods that food is held 2 hours at room temperature. After 2 hours at room temperature, throw the food out before it makes you or your family sick.

 

HACCP - Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points

By following 6 simple HACCP principles for safe food, the occurrence of food-borne illness in prepared food can be reduced.

1. Buy cold food last and get it home fast. Check cans for leaks, dents, or bulging lids.

2. When storing food, don’t wait to refrigerate. Use plastic bags on plates to keep raw juices from dripping on other foods. Store canned goods in a cool dry area. Never store any food under the sink, keep it off the floor, and away from cleaning supplies.

3. When preparing foods, keep everything clean. Don’t cross contaminate. Wash hands, counters equipment, utensils and cutting boards with soap and water immediately after use. Sanitize with a chlorine bleach solution of 1-teaspoon bleach to 1 quart of water.

4. Cook foods thoroughly. Use a meat thermometer to determine if meat, poultry, and casseroles have reached a safe internal temperature of 160° F to 165° F.

5. When serving food, keep hot foods hot (above 140° F) and cold foods cold (below 40° F.) Never put cooked foods on a dish that held raw foods unless the dish has been washed with soap and water. Use a metal stem thermometer to check the temperature of food before serving.

6. Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours of cooking. Discard food left out longer than 2 hours. When reheating leftovers, heat thoroughly to a temperature of 165° F or until hot and steamy. Bring soups, sauces, and gravies, to a boil. When in doubt, throw it out!

2.      Routinely use gloves to prevent mucous membrane exposure when contact with blood or other bodily fluids is anticipated.  (in First-aid kit)

3.      Immediately wash hands and other skin surface if contaminated with blood

4.      Clean all blood-contaminated surfaces and equipment.

5.      Managers, coaches, and volunteers with open wounds should refrain from all direct contact until the condition is resolved.

Hepatitis A Virus

Hepatitis A is a highly contagious virus. It is related to many other types of viruses that cause disease like the common cold. In the last decade, Hepatitis A was the fourth leading cause of reported food-borne illness outbreaks. Symptoms of Hepatitis A may be unrecognized in children under two and are a silent source in spreading the disease. It is most often spread by adults changing a child’s diaper and then not adequately washing their hands. Food or work areas are then indirectly contaminated by the Hepatitis A virus when the adult prepares or handles food.

 

 

 

Equipment Officer to Inspect all Equipment in the Pre-season

All equipment was inspected prior to the 2021 season by Cesar Carrillo, AHLL Equipment Officer.
Managers/ Coaches will inspect equipment prior to each game.

Child Protection Program 2021

 

The safety and well-being of all Anaheim Hills Little League and Softball players is our main priority.  We want to ensure that everyone playing in our League can grow up happy, healthy and, above all, safe. Whether they are our children, or the children of others, each of us has a responsibility to protect them.

Unfortunately, there are those who would seek to do harm to these children, to rob them of their right to feel safe and grow up in a free and healthy environment. These are child abusers, and although it is not an easy or pleasant topic for any of us to think about, the fact remains that child abuse happens. In 1998, Little League International launched the Child Protection Program to educate local league volunteers, with the goal of creating local league programs where only those who have the best interests of children in mind are involved. Like many national youth organizations, Little League seeks to attract the most qualified and enthusiastic volunteers to assist our programs. At the same time, we must be aware that this could make us a target for child abusers, since statistics show that the largest number of sexually abused children are young children. Clearly, dealing with child abuse is a major concern for everyone involved in Little League, from the Little League International staff to the local league volunteers.

The Abuse Awareness for Adults courses provide resources to create a positive and safe environment for all athletes, coaches, parents, legal guardians, umpires and spectators by understanding how to recognize misconduct and abuse of all types. Topics covered include how to identify and report incidents and what abuse awareness policies should be in place. A short four minute video can be found at
