Volunteers

Why become a 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. Your local Little League program 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. By reading further, you will discover that the benefits of volunteering are endless. You will also gain a better understanding of why you should become involved, who volunteers are, what you can do, and how you can sign up.

Who can volunteer?
Anyone can apply to become a volunteer. Whatever talents or skills you have, we can use them! Across the country, volunteers are grandparents, siblings, aunts and uncles, retirees, community leaders, former Little Leaguers, friends, neighbors, and more. Any community member who wishes to become a volunteer may apply.

All parents of children involved in Little League Baseball are strongly encouraged to volunteer. As a parent volunteer, you have the opportunity to spend quality time with your child in a safe, fun-filled environment. Oftentimes, parent and child social lives parallel each other. Volunteering allows your life and your child's life to intersect on common ground, with shared interests and goals. 

On rare occasions, Little League, through District Administrators and your local Board of Directors, may deny individuals the privilege of volunteering for reasons, past or present, that may be detrimental to the positive development of young people, other volunteers, and/or Little League International. When you apply to become a volunteer, you give Martinez-Evans Little League the right to conduct necessary background checks.

How do I become a volunteer?
Parents, take a minute to fill out the volunteer form while registering your child. If you are not a parent and would like to volunteer, take a minute to fill out the form while visiting your local registration location. The volunteer application form is found at the bottom of this page, as well as the Volunteer Code of Conduct.

What can I volunteer to do?
No experience is required to become a volunteer. Most of the volunteer opportunities require little or no training. Martinez-Evans Little League will provide you with any necessary training (as well as support and encouragement), as they deem necessary. The best volunteers are those who are able to bring added enjoyment to the game simply be being themselves. What you see during Little League games is a mere fraction of what you can do as a volunteer. You can volunteer to help in virtually any aspect of Little League
Baseball.

Approved Volunteers

Martinez-Evans Little League is required by Little League Baseball Incorporated regulations to conduct annual national background checks of volunteer individuals as a condition of our charter. Completion and verification of the volunteer form for one year DOES NOT automatically carry over into the next season.

This requirement was implemented to protect our children from those who would seek to do them harm, to protect MELL from possible loss of league or personal assets because of litigation, and to take advantage of current technology and laws that have made background check information accessible to MELL.

The process is secure and confidential and is the responsibility of the League President.

New volunteers will need to complete volunteer application which can be downloaded and emailed to the League Volunteer Coordinator or it can be mailed to the league address, shown below. Individuals that volunteered during the 2017 season will instead need to complete the returning volunteer application.
