Salmon Creek Little League

2016 Softball Volunteer Needs/Opportunities

Hey Softball Fans…

The SCLL softball division has exploded over the past 4 years, and the workload has become too overwhelming for one person to handle alone. We are excited about what the future holds for our softball league, but we need to build a core foundation of SOLID volunteers to help us build a thriving, vibrant organization as we move forward. We are looking for energetic, enthusiastic, positive, outgoing go-getters that want to help build an awesome program! Here is a list of volunteer opportunities that we would like to fill as we grow our softball division at SCLL:

Softball Commissioner:
Works directly with SCLL softball volunteers and helps them accomplish their daily goals, selects/appoints/mentors/oversees coaches, coordinates with league and interleague schedulers for field use & game schedules, practice field scheduler (acquiring, scheduling, conflict resolution), submits recommendations to Softball vice-president, attends board meetings, etc.

Softball Player Agent:
Organizes & conducts tryouts, player selections and drafts, helps create teams, assists the registrar in confirming eligibility of each player (age, boundary, school requirements), maintains the BONZI player/coach database, runs the all-star selections process, clears all-star players for eligibility, facilitates the "Player Pool", communicates with coaches/players on a routine (almost daily) basis during first few weeks of season as players are registered, teams are formed, and late signups are added, etc. This is probably the hardest most time-consuming job in Little League, but we could teach you slowly.

Softball Information Officer:
Promotes the league. Coordinates with the SCLL Information Officer to ensure a strong softball presence on all communication resources (SCLL Website, Facebook, Twitter, Active.com, etc), communicates with softball families routinely via email or other means. This person MUST be outgoing, energetic, and motivated to help create a more enjoyable and efficient Little League experience for all players and families. Researches and implements new ways to communicate and share information, updates, scores, highlights, videos, pictures, etc. We would love to see our softball section of the website BLOW UP and great crazy… with pictures, videos, game highlights, updates, etc. You could farm this part out to someone… We just need someone to run with it.

Softball Apparel Coordinator (FILLED):
Looks for ways to promote SCLL softball through quality apparel options, finds & selects quality apparel and accessory items specific to SCLL softball, coordinates with SCLL apparel coordinator to ensure appropriate amounts of softball apparel and accessories are in stock and made available at Luke Jensen, coordinates with outside businesses to provide other options for unique apparel and shares those with SCLL softball coaches/players/families. Locates qualified vendors who can provide affordable silk-screening options or other materials specific to girls' softball. Finds FUN and exciting apparel/accessories for the girls to wear.

Softball Equipment Manager: (FILLED)
Distributes, collects, tracks, repairs, replaces, and orders new equipment (when needed), Coordinates with SCLL Equipment Manager to ensure appropriate levels of softball gear are available. Ensures equipment is in working order and appropriate for league use. Equipment includes balls, bats, helmets, gloves, catcher's sets, team bags, buckets, throat guards, etc.

Softball Uniform Manager: (FILLED)
Distributes, collects, tracks, repairs, replaces, and orders New jerseys (when needed). Coordinates with coaches directly to ensure they have appropriate sizes and #'s of jerseys. Communicates with coaches & players at the end of season who have not returned their jerseys.

If you feel you would like to give one of these roles a shot, please let us know. We need as many hands on deck as possible... and we promise not to dump a ton of stuff on you all at once.
