Volunteer Opportunities

Our Little League is run entirely by volunteers. The league relies on parent and community involvement to be successful. Please consider volunteering for an open league volunteer role or team support position - or both!

Our volunteers do the following:

  • Register/assign over 600 kids, over a hundred coaches and managers & dozens of umpires.
  • Schedule over 60 teams, 500 games & thousands of practice/training sessions.
  • Maintain/distribute over 600 jerseys (in numerous sizes), thousands of baseballs/softballs, and safety equipment.
  • Coordinate, allocate, and help maintain a limited set of play fields.
  • Support managers and coaches with snacks, pictures, Mariners Day, the Jamboree.

If you are interested in helping, please contact me.

Open Volunteer Positions

Division Coordinators for Tee-Ball:

The Division Coordinator's role is to support team managers in the logistics and operations of the season. Among their duties are helping to form teams, meeting with managers and coaches prior to the season to insure alignment on goals, schedules, playing time requirements, and so on, working with managers on schedule issues during the season, enforcing pitch count reporting, serving as a resource to managers on safety, equipment, rules, etc. and helping administer the post-season playoffs. The role is crucial to Little League because it insures coaches spend as much time coaching as possible. Some time in late Feb and Mar forming teams and helping organize coaches, then some time during the season with administrative tasks.


Summer Ball Coordinator

Each summer, NCLL organizes a sandlot-style baseball and softball league with no practices and teams sometimes chosen at game-time. Season runs in late June through early Aug. The coordinator would help organize teams and ensure communication to registrants and coaches was carried out well. 

Umpire Coordinator:
The Umpires Coordinator schedules umpires for games, using preferably our fine volunteer umps, or if necessary, professional ones, to insure adequate coverage of the games. This position will require some modest effort throughout the season. No umpiring experience necessary! Strictly an admin role. Responsibility for umpire training, etc. lies with our Umpire-in-Chief.

Jamboree Support:
Assist our Jamboree Coordinator with organizing out annual mid-season classic. Helping schedule games, organizing concession sales, and so on. Somewhat busy in early season and then nothing after Jamboree.

Company-Paid Volunteer Time

Many companies in this area (e.g., Microsoft) will donate to NCLL as much as $25 per hour for your volunteer time! Don't miss this opportunity to support your local Little League with volunteer time AND with a cash donation from your employer at the same time. Please consult with the Human Resources department of your employer to determine if such a program is offered and how you can make it happen.

Per Little League Int'l regulations, any person, even a parent of a player on a team, who interacts with the kids during practices or games MUST get a background check covering criminal convictions. The first step is to register as a volunteer. Once you do that, within 24 hours you'll get an email from our background check vendor, JDP, with a link to a confidential questionnaire. The questionnaire only takes a few minutes to complete and results typically come back to the league within 24 hours. It is free to you and strictly confidential.

To register as a volunteer, simply go to this page and fill out the questionnaire. Only takes a minute. (It helps to login first but not strictly necessary.)

We appreciate your help. If you have any questions, contact our registrar at ncllregistrar@gmail.com.
