Field captains are critical roles for making sure our kids are able to play on well-maintained fields and doesn’t require a ton of commitment! Please read the role responsibilities and details below and let us know if we can count on you to be a part of this group.

This position visits a designated field 1-2 times per month to complete the task list below. We are working to recruit 2 field captains at each location so that it is a once/month commitment from each volunteer. These volunteers work as a team to schedule field checks.
