Volunteer Overview

LGLL is an all-volunteer league and parent volunteers are essential to the success of our league. 

In addition to the Registration Fees, each family is responsible for four total hours of volunteer work during the league season per enrolled player.  You can sign up for an available position at Baggerly/Blossom Hill and/or Balzer.

One parent from each team will be the Team Coordinator (TC) to ensure that their team’s volunteer requirements are met. TCs will work with the League’s Concessions Director(s) to make sure that commitments are fulfilled and documented.  Parents will receive an email from their team’s TC regarding signups for Eval Day, Opening Day, and Snack Shack.  Parents who do not fulfill their volunteer commitment will be required to pay the buyout fee (see below).  Players whose parents do not fulfill their volunteer commitment or pay the buyout fee will not be allowed to register for LGLL next year. 

Volunteer Opportunities - Applicable hours listed in ()

  • Evaluation Day Volunteer  (2 hours) – working one shift during evaluations (January)
  • Opening Day Volunteer  (2 hours) - working one shift during Opening Day (March)
  • Snack Shack (2 hours) - On game days, we need adult volunteers to help staff the snack shack. This involves set-up, food prep, money handling, and tear down depending on the shift. The snack shack is by far the most popular shift and is usually what all our kids remember during the season. It's also a main fundraiser for the league which carries significant importance.
  • Manager (ie: Head Coach) (fulfills obligation)- responsible for their players, parents & coaching staff. Leads practices & games and ensures Good Sportsmanship.
  • Assistant Coach (1 per team, fulfills obligation)- one official assistant coach per team. Other "assistants" will still need to fulfill 4 hours per player. 
  • Team Coordinator (TC)  (1 per team, fulfills obligation) – one per team; Ensures all volunteer requirements are met for the team and reports to the Volunteer Director. Will coordinate snack shack cards for the team. May also include coordination for printing on shirts, team party and coaches gifts. See Team Coordinator Page for more info.
  • Division Commissioners (fulfills obligation) - Each division (TBall, A, AA, AAA, Majors, and Juniors) will have a commissioner assigned to help the season run smoothly. A division commissioner will partner with the league president and VP of operations to distribute information to managers, help determine practice and games schedules, be the main POC for managers, and help handle issues as they arise during the course of the season. This is a great way to get more involved with the League and help the board deliver a world class experience for our kids. 
  • Scorekeeping (AA, AAA & Majors only) (1 per team-fulfills obligation if full time) in charge of keeping official score using GameChanger, home team is the official scorekeeper for all games. Must attend GameChanger training class.
  • Umpire (1 game = 2 hours) - From AA up to Majors, we rely on volunteer adult umpires to help our season run smoothly. You'll receive training and be paired with an experienced umpire. This is also a great way to develop empathy for our adult kid umpires who are out here for the love of the game and to support the league. 

TCs will ensure that team families meet one or more of these obligations. Not all of these commitments will require the same amount of time, so the League’s Concessions and Volunteer Directors will be providing TCs with guidelines and templates as to how they can account for the contributions of each family.

Volunteer Commitment Buy-Out

We realize that not all families are able to meet the above volunteer commitments.  Therefore, during on-line registration, you may elect to “buy-out” this obligation with a $750 per player donation to the League.  As mentioned above, parents who do not fulfill their volunteer commitment will be required to pay the appropriate Volunteer Commitment Buy-Out(s) or their child (ren) may not be allowed to register for LGLL next year.
