Santa Teresa Little League

Volunteer Information

 

As you may not be aware, all of the coaches, managers and board members of Santa Teresa Little League are volunteers, some of whom are volunteering – literally – hundreds of hours each year for our organization.  None of them are paid for their long hours of dedication in support of our league.  However, like most parents in our community, the coaches, managers and board members are also busy “off the field,” working and raising their families.  Like each of us, they can only give so much of their time.  

 

For this reason, each participant family must volunteer for its child’s team to help cover that team’s “snack shack” and umpire assignments, which your child’s team manager will tell you more about before the season begins.  Basically, each team (including T Ball, A, AA, AAA and Majors) must contribute an adult (or two) to operate the “snack shack” for each of the team’s home games.  Additionally, each team must cover a handful of umpire assignments each season (for  AAA. Major, and Jr games).  When you meet your team’s manager, please be sure to let the manager know that you will be supporting him/her and your team as needed.  

 

In addition to “snack shack” and umpire assignments, we need each participant family to volunteer at some point during the season.  Please select one or more of the following positions where help is most needed.
