Parent Volunteer Opportunities

WHAT IS A PARENT VOLUNTEER?

Little League Baseball is an organization designed to build good citizens. It is a program of leadership, preparing today’s youth to be tomorrow’s leaders. At the local level, Little League relies on a devoted legion of adult volunteers to help ensure that the organization remains structured and runs smoothly. Bellaire Little League is always looking for responsible and enthusiastic individuals to support and coordinate Little League events and activities. As a volunteer, you should have a keen interest in the safety, well-being, and overall development of children.  (Source: https://www.littleleague.org/volunteer)

It is also an amazing way to meet other families in our community, build relationships and show your children the value of volunteering! Volunteer roles vary per season. Your manager will be asking you to fill one of these roles. Please get with your team manager about specific needs/volunteer roles.

Below are descriptions and options to choose from.

Fall Parent Volunteer Role Descriptions

  1. Team Parent - In charge of the team party, trophies (participation trophies for the younger ages), and coaches’ gifts at the end of the season. Also will collect any money needed for the team.
  2. Snack Coordinator - Coordinate team snacks after each game 
  3. Uniform Coordinator & Names on Caps - Coordinate with the manager to pick up uniform items and distribute them to the team prior to the first preseason game. Coordinate with the manager to get players’ and coaches’ names embroidered on their caps. Approximately $7/cap (the team usually absorbs the cost for the manager and coach caps). Usually, put the first name on hats.
  4. Game Announcer (Home team) & Scoreboard Keeper (Visiting team) For Texas, National, and American leagueTeams will need to provide an announcer and scorekeeper for each game. Rookie and Tball are also encouraged to have a Game Announcer but it is not required. TX/NL/AL - Sometimes the game announcer will announce both teams. Just work with your opposing manager on this before the game and ensure the announcer has a lineup of first and last names of your batting order. You should have at least 4-5 copies of your lineup. 1 for you, your coaches, announcer, and opposing manager. At Fox and Kindle, we have a portable Bluetooth speaker and microphone in each shed. Jessamine and Tiras have PA systems in the press boxes. The scorekeeper running the scoreboard is also in the press box along with the game announcer. This is often consolidated into 2 people due to space limitations in the press box.
  5. Pitch Count Coordinator (National and American only) - Keep count of the pitches of each pitcher.
  6. Score and Stat Keeper via Game Changer (National and American only) - Keep score at the games through Game Changer. Game Changer is an online tool to keep scores, track stats and provide a platform for group messaging.
  7. Team Photo Taker (All Leagues) - Capture those special team moments! Snap pictures at practices, games, and special events. We'll reach out to this volunteer to collect the photos each week to share on our website, social media accounts, and our website. Let's show the world how much fun we have each season!
