Volunteers

Scotts Valley’s Little League is only as good as its volunteers, and we are 100% volunteer run. If you don’t have time to coach, we can still use help in many other areas. Come to one of our board meetings, which are held monthly (see the ScottsValleyLL.org home or calendar page).


Important Volunteer Roles

MANAGERS and COACHES
These people are your first source of contact for any questions about their team and the league as a whole.  For example, if Johnny is going through a phase where he is afraid of the ball, or if Johnny is afraid to play a certain position, or if Johnny is having issues with another kid on the team, please let your coaches know!

The role of a team manager is to act as head coach, and lead the organization of the team. That includes finding (or volunteering) other parents to be assistant coaches, team parents, etc. and setting the practice schedule.

TEAM PARENT
This is the parent coordinator for the team. Team parents typically take care of setting up a Shutterfly share site for team communication, organizing snack schedules, ordering spirit wear, helping with uniforms and passing on information from the league about opening day, photo schedule and the Hit-A-Thon fundraiser. 

SCOREKEEPER and PITCH COUNTER
The home team for all games in the AA, AAA and Majors divisions must supply a scorekeeper. The visiting team must supply a pitch counter. Scorekeeping and pitch counting are not hard to learn, but the scorekeeper clinic (held each year in February—the 23rd in 2017) will give you a head-start (or a refresher). We recommend all teams have at least two volunteers attend. Here are the 2017 clinic presentation slides.

DIVISION COMMISSIONER
This is the person who manages the division (T-ball, Single A, Double A, Triple A, or Majors) and is the main person for keeping order (e.g., making sure each team has what they need, making sure rained out games get re-scheduled, etc.) and is the main contact for the division’s managers.

PLAYER AGENT
The player agent for your child’s division is the main liaison for any issues that arise between yourselves and our league. The Player Agent is here to represent the kids.  If any issue arises between your child/family and the league, the player agent for you child’s division is the person to see.

PRESIDENT
As with most small organizations, the President seems to be involved in everything.  If you have any questions, suggestions, and/or comments about the league as a whole - or if you wish to volunteer and want to know how you can help - please see our President!

Note that several volunteer positions need to be filled for our 2018 season. See our board info page.
