Volunteer Positions Requiring Background Checks:
Manager - The team manager is ultimately responsible for the team including the players and the parents. This individual is in charge of the roster, lineup, and the coaches and must uphold the standards of quality and leadership expected in Little League.
Coach - The coaches are critical for the skill development of the players. In support of the manager, the coaches work with the players to improve each player on an individual basis, which ultimately improves the team as a whole.
Team Parent - The team parent is the greatest supporter of the team and works with the team manager to insure that the parents on the team help organize a great season for the players.
Umpire - Each team will be responsible for providing umpires for games. So each team will need at least one individual who will either umpire games themselves, or who will be responsible for making sure that adequate umpire coverage is provided for each their team.Clinics will be offered for those individuals who are unfamiliar with this aspect of the game but who are willing to learn.
