HLL Volunteer Opportunities
Below are areas in which Huguenot Little League needs your help. If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to inquire at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Become a Team Manager or Coach
Being a manager or coach requires time, patience and basic knowledge of the game of baseball. You may be required to attend meetings, instructional sessions or seminars. You will communicate with the parents/guardians of your players to inform them of any schedule changes, rainouts and Huguenot Little League events and activities.
As a manager or coach, you have more interaction with young people than anyone else in Little League. Therefore, it is important that you understand the goals and virtues of the Little League program in order to effectively communicate them to your players. To gain a better understanding of what those goals and virtues are, visit Little League's homepage or speak with your league's president.
Become a Team Parent
The Team Parent is the liaison between the Manager and the team parents and allows the Manager and Coaches to better focus on leading the ballplayers. Each team needs one parent to help the coaches coordinate activities and communicate updates. This is a great way to get to know all the families on the team!
Help with Field Maintenance
Huguenot Little League volunteers work hard to keep our fields in shape. As a field volunteer, you can help with preparing the fields for opening at the beginning of the season, taking down equipment and cleanup at the end of the season and periodic field maintenance throughout the season.
Help at Registration
Volunteers may be needed to help with distributing and flyers advertising the beginning of registration.
The responsibilities of the HLL concession stand volunteer are standing behind a counter and filling orders. There is always an experienced volunteer working during shifts to help bring new volunteers up to speed.
Help with our Special Events/Fundraising Committee
For 2015, Huguenot LL has created a Special Events/Fundraising Committee. Volunteers will get to help with our Opening Day and Family Day Events as well as provide assistance wherever we may need it. This committee may require planning and attending meetings, organizing and participating in fundraising events, and managing and distributing funds. While an unlimited number of fundraisers using adults are permitted, only one fundraiser using players, in or out of uniform, is permitted per year.
