There are many options to fulfill your volunteer commitment: team parent, pre-season field prep days, field prep and clean up, umpiring, pitch count, score keeping, snack shack shifts, tournament assistance, PLL Dinner, sponsorship, family fun day, Board of Directors, coaching, etc.
It is each families responsibility to report any hours worked (activity, day and time/hours worked) to their Team Parent. The Team Parent is responsible to tracking all hours and submitting them to the Team Parent Coordinator at the end of the season.
No, there are no volunteer umpires at this level. Per PLL Bylaws the coach behind home plate is to act as the umpire for this level.
Each of the field activities satisfy 4 volunteer hours- 4 for the field-prep family and 4 for the field clean-up family. If you volunteered for field-prep, you prep the field for all of your teams home games and field clean-up is done by the visiting team. For a list of specific tasks please see your Team Parent or Coach.
For the AA Division each team will need a parent volunteer umpire which will satisfy 8 volunteer hours, a snack shack shift is still required. It is optional, but strongly encouraged for the volunteers to attend the Umpire training clinic hosted by PLL.
Any other families interested in volunteering to umpire AAA games will need to attend the Umpire training clinic which you will receive 3 volunteer hours, and you will be awarded additional volunteer hours on a per-hour basis for each game you umpire during the season.
