Volunteer FAQ

How can I volunteer?

GVLL is an all-volunteer organization and we ask that everyone lend a hand. We need people to be managers, team parents, event producers, marketers, webmasters and more. We ask all those who register to choose a way in which they'd like to pitch in and we expect everyone to honor that commitment. Not sure what you have signed up for? 

Always feel free to contact the GVLL board at [email protected] to let us know you’d like to help out or to find out more about volunteering opportunities. You can view a list of volunteer positions and a description of their responsibilities here.

Does GVLL perform background checks on its volunteers?
Yes. All GVLL volunteers who are working with kids/coaching are required to submit to an annual background check, per Little League of America regulations.

I’d like to be a Manager or Coach. How does that process work? 
Fill out the GVLL volunteer form, (click here for instructions on registering as a volunteer) and indicate that you would like to be a Manager or Coach. We will let you know if your help is needed before the start of the season. Please note that there are fewer spots in the Majors divisions and that positions on those teams tend to go to volunteers with prior coaching experience in the League.

Other than Managers and Coaches, what other roles are there for parents on their child’s team? 
There are many ways you can help the League. If you would like to help your child’s team specifically in a role other than that of coach or manager, consider volunteering as a Safety Coordinator or Team Parent. You can read more about the duties of each here.


We are an all volunteer organization. We are all inclusive, we like to have fun in our city, and we teach our children sportsmanship and to honor the game. A small army of volunteers helps in many ways including a Board of Directors, Team Coordinators, Team Managers, Coaches and Safety Officers. Our volunteers manage Sponsorships, Marketing, Equipment, Permits and Schedules. What's more, nearly half of our Parent members contribute in some active way such as helping out with Opening Day and Picture Day.

All GVLL parents are required to volunteer. And everyone who participates finds it to be a rewarding, community-building experience.

The earlier you become involved in volunteering your time to the league, the more beneficial it is to you and to the league. We need all sorts of skills to make our organization run smoothly and efficiently -- handy men, doctors, lawyers, accountants, administrators, film makers, marketers, designers, webmasters, writers, teachers -- any one with time to offer. We run a four season program, so there is always a task at hand. And every GVLL parent, by agreeing to the terms of registration, is a GVLL volunteer.

 Volunteer Roles include:

  • Manager - Leader of the Team: run practices, manage games determine batting order and field positions, etc. Note, that Manager spots are reviewed and approved by GVLL Board in the older divisions.

  • Coach - Work with Manager to run practices and at game time.

  • Safety Coordinator - Attend safety training, ensure ice packs are applied when needed, etc.

  • Team Parent - Work with Team Manager to assist with various tasks, including helping with team kick-off and end-of-season parties, team banner, maintaining team webpage, arranging car pools to games if needed,
