Anyone can apply to become a volunteer. All parents of children involved in Little League Baseball and Softball are strongly encouraged to volunteer. As a parent, volunteer, you have the opportunity to spend quality time with your child in a safe, fun-filled environment. What you see during Little League games is a mere fraction of what you can do as a volunteer. You can volunteer to help in virtually any aspect of Little League Baseball or Softball. Any talents or skills you have, we can use them!

Across the country, volunteers are grandparents, siblings, aunts and uncles, retirees, community leaders, former Little Leaguers, friends, neighbors, and more. Any community member who wishes to become a volunteer may apply. Oftentimes, parent and child social lives parallel each other. Volunteering allows your life and your child's life to intersect on common ground, with shared interests and goals.

Any and all are welcome that want to lend a hand, from helping out with tryouts/skill assessments, tournaments, and various events, to even becoming a Member of the GTLL Board of Directors we can use your help! See the list below for more details regarding volunteer roles.

**If you are interested¬†in Volunteering as a Manager, Coach, or Team Parent please send your email to [email protected]**,Please consult our league president on how to best use your talents and skills to help provide our kids the best Little League experience possible.**

Thanks for your consideration,
Grand Terrace Little League Board of Directors

Being a Team Manager or Coach

Is the most critical role since without the Team Manager/Head Coach no children will be able to have the experience of baseball/softball, Being a manager or coach requires patience and a basic knowledge of the game of baseball/softball. 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 Grand Terrace 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 Grand Terrace Little League program in order to effectively communicate them to your players.

Being an Umpire
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.

Helping with Field Maintenance
In some cases, your local Little League is required to maintain the fields that your child plays on. As a part of the field maintenance crew, your skills and abilities may be used to mow grass, line fields, rake dirt, and execute minor repairs on fences, benches and bleachers.

Helping Out at GTLL Events (Registration, Opening Ceremony, Tournaments, Tryouts, etc)
Volunteers may be needed to make and distribute posters and flyers advertising the beginning of registration. You can pass these out to local schools and youth organizations, and distribute them throughout neighborhoods. Announcements can be placed in local newspapers and on local radio stations. They should have the time, date and location of local registration, and they should inform parents of any specific documents that will be needed.

Volunteers are also needed at the time of registration. You will be responsible for organizing lines, handing out forms, answering questions, making sure that forms are filled out completely and correctly, and collecting participation fees.
