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:

Two (2) snack shack shifts
OR
One (1) snack shack shift AND one (1) other volunteer opportunity (see list below) 
OR 
Two (2) additional volunteer opportunities (see list below) 
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)

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.  Parents who do not pay the buyout fee at the time of registration will be required to provide a post dated check for the buyout fee amount.  Upon fulfillment of volunteer requirements, this check will be destroyed or returned uncashed.  

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