Volunteer Opportunities

  • COACHES - Little League® coaches are leaders. All must recognize that they hold a position of trust and responsibility in a program that deals with a sensitive and formative period of a child’s development. Coaches must have understanding and patience. They must recognize that the game is a vehicle of training and enjoyment, not an end in itself. The coach should be able to inspire respect. Above all else, coaches must realize that they are helping to shape the physical, mental and emotional development of young people. Children of Little League age are strongly influenced by adults whose ideals and aspirations are similar to their own. The coach and player share a common interest in the game, a desire to excel, and determination to win. Children often idolize their coaches, not because the adult is the most successful coach or mentor, but because the coach is a source of inspiration.

  • UMPIRES - Aside from calling ball or strike, safe or out, umpires are responsible for teaching players good sportsmanship and the rules of the game. Umpires are also called upon to interpret rules and help settle minor disputes that may occur during games. Most Little League games have one home plate umpire and a minimum of one field umpire. Before becoming a home plate umpire you may be required to participate in training sessions and seminars. While home plate umpires are scheduled well in advance, field umpires are often determined minutes before the game begins. As you arrive at your child's game, your coach or the home plate umpire may ask you to be the field umpire. When you agree, your main responsibilities are to call plays on the bases, determine if balls are fair or foul, and assist the home plate umpire with other calls.

  • UMPIRE IN CHIEF (Board Position) - The umpire-in-chief should be, as a minimum, a role model to the children, and should have basic rule knowledge as well as being able to recruit, teach or train volunteer umpires and interpret rules. His/her duties should be to:
    • Train new umpires and/or managers/coaches for base umpires.
    • Schedule umpires in all or most divisions of league play and should umpire as well.
    • Establish a dress code for the volunteer umpires that will be umpiring in the local league.
    • Interface with the local league board of directors as it relates to game situation, manager/coach situations, etc.
    • Be available to debrief after games if asked by those volunteer umpires that want an evaluation

  • TEAM PARENT - The NBLL Team Parent is a pivotal part of every team. They are the coach's assistant, cheerleader and team coordinator all in one. These are things you will already be doing if your child is on the team, so take it one more step and help the entire team operate more smoothly! Every coach needs help prepping for a game, making calls when rain (or snow) makes practice impractical, and keeping an energetic team in line on the sidelines. You're making a difference for a whole team - a team that includes your child. It's a great way to make your child's team a family experience!

  • SCOREKEEPER - Score Keepers work closely with their team Coach and/or team Manager during a game. Their purpose is to: 
    1) Ensure that the proper line-up is followed.
    2) Ensure that every player has played their amount of time.
    3) Ensure that the pitching eligibility is observed properly.
    4) Track player stats and team score.
    5) To record the exact game situation in the event of a protested or suspended game. 
    6) Record the final score of the game.
    7) Report final score and key game play to the WebMaster so the information can be shared on the website and Social media.
    If you are interested in being a Little League ScoreKeeper, please let us know!

  • FUNDRAISING COMMITTEE - NBLL is looking to start a Fundraising Committee. The efforts of this committee will help provide such things as uniforms, equipment, awards, team snacks/drinks, and league events. This role will require planning and attending meetings, organizing and participating in fundraising events, and managing and distributing funds. Little League limits local leagues to only one fundraiser using players, in or out of uniform, but an unlimited amount of fundraisers using adults are permitted. Do you have what it takes?

  • PLAYER AGENT (Board Position)- NBLL is looking for a Player Agent. This role assists the league president in carrying out the important responsibility of establishing and maintaining the eligibility of player personnel. However, the final responsibility for the qualification of player candidates & league personnel resides with the president.  In general, the player agent represents the league president in the supervision of the player selection system or draft. Maintains complete player records, trading & replacements, eligibility and team rosters. The player agent also works on creating the game schedules for the season.

  • CONCESSIONS STAND - Working in the Snack Bar at Schifilliti Park is fun and rewarding. The responsibilities of a concession stand volunteer involve standing behind the counter and filling orders for candy, hot dogs, popcorn and soda. We strive to have the Snack Bar open at every game, but this depends on the availability of our volunteers.

      Anyone can apply to become a volunteer! In the past, our volunteers have been parents, grandparents, siblings, aunts/uncles, retirees, community leaders, former Little Leaguers, friends and neighbors. Whatever talents or skills you have, we can use them!
