Volunteer Requirements

ULL is an all-volunteer league.  Apart from the youth umpiring program and outside vendors, no one is paid for their efforts in making sure the League is successful.  Of course, parents are central to these efforts.

In addition to the Registration Fees, on a per-child basis, each family is responsible for:

Eight (8) hours of volunteer time via several opportunities
OR
Filling one of the listed “Team Staff” Positions (see list below)
OR
Serving as an adult umpire in league games (see more details below)
OR
Serving on the ULL board

Buyout:

We realize that not all families are able to meet the above volunteer commitments.  Therefore, during on-line registration, you may elect to “buy-out” this obligation with a $250 per child contribution to the League.   For those who do not select the buyout option,  please bring a $250 check to the League's Player  Verification Night on December 14.  This check will be held by the league's Volunteer Director, and will not be cashed if parents fulfill the volunteer requirements for the season. Once volunteer hours are fulfilled, the check will be returned or destroyed.  

The league Volunteer Coordinator (in conjunction with the Snack Shack Coordinators, Chief Umpire and Team Coordinators) will be responsible for tracking participation of each league family and returning (or destroying) uncashed checks. 

Other Volunteer Opportunities

In addition to the Snack Shack shift(s), here are some additional opportunities to meet the volunteer requirements:

- Evaluation Day Volunteer – working a half day shift during evaluations
- Special Fields & Facilities Days – working a half day shift at one of the special field clean up days
- Special League Events  - work a shift at special league events (eg: Sectional, Divisional, or State Tournaments).
- Umpire  - Working a minimum of three games as Umpire can fulfill the entire volunteer requirement.  Must attend the District 12 adult umpire clinic (dates TBA) to qualify to umpire league games.   

Team Staff Positions:

Filling one of the following team positions will satisfy the volunteer requirement for one child.  The team manager shall submit names for each of these roles to the Volunteer Coordinator and at the end of the season confirm fulfillment of said duties.

·         Manager (ie: Head Coach) - responsible for their players, parents & coaching staff. Leads practices & games and ensures Good Sportsmanship.
·         Coach (ie: assists the Manager)– two per team; helps Manager in all aspects.
·         Team Coordinator – one per team; Ensures all volunteer requirements are met for the team and reports to the Volunteer
Director.    Team Coordinator will handle snack shack cards for the team. May also include coordination for printing on shirts,
team party and coaches gifts. Works with Volunteer Director to  ensure that each family on their team has signed up and 
completed their volunteer requirements.   
·         Scorekeeper - one per team;  in charge of keeping official score using GameChanger, home team is the official scorekeeper for all            games.  


Communication:

After the season schedule has been finalized, parents will have an opportunity to sign up for shifts at the Snack Shack, to help out with field maintenance and improvement projects,  to work games as an umpire, or to help out with  special events such as Opening Day,  Family Fun Day, the Hit-a-Thon, and more.   The Volunteer Coordinator and the Team Coordinators will communicate these  opportunities primarily through email.   Signups will be organized through online sites such as www.signup.com and www.arbitersports.com. 


FINALLY, if parents would like to submit a proposal for fulfilling volunteer requirements in another way, such as a special project, we'd love to hear you out!  Please contact the Volunteer Coordinator at [email protected]

 Teams with 100%  parent volunteer participation will be rewarded with SPECIAL snack shack benefits!
