Volunteers Needed! Sign Up Here.
Suncook Little League is a volunteer organization. It is ONLY made possible through parents dedication and willingness to participate. At the end of the day, we just want to allow our kids to have a safe and fun baseball experience and learn the value of teamwork. Please take a look at the role descriptions below and click Registration button to signup.
Volunteer Credits We value the time and dedication of our SLL volunteers. In effort to recognize and thank the volunteers who contribute their time, SLL will credit/refund some of your registration costs at the end of the season. Credit is available once per family and applied to each player registered. For example, a $50 credit will equal $100 if you have 2 children registered for Spring ball. Once you have fulfilled requirements for a specific role, Contact the Volunteer Coordinator to initiate your credit. See roles descriptions for more specifics regarding volunteering credits.
Umpires! Getting volunteers to umpire youth games has been an increasing statewide problem. It is driving up league costs and ultimately registration costs, and making it more and more challenging to put season's together. SLL appreciates volunteers at every capacity, but we need Umpires! Please consider being an Umpire this season!
Volunteer Role Descriptions
Team Manager is responsible for team introductions, setting up and organizing practices and practice plans. Manager's game responsibilities are knowing the game rules, establishing rosters, fielding positions for players, and guiding young players through games. Coaches play in integral role in supporting the Manager during practices and games.
Each team at the T-Ball level should have at least a Manager and a Coach. At Farm through Intermediate Division it is typical to have a Manager and at least two official Coaches. Sometimes the Manager may ask willing parents to join in at practices.
*This Role is a Season commitment and qualifies for $50 Volunteer Credit per player towards your registration.
Volunteering in the Canteen is a wonderful way to have fun and help the league! The sales from the snacks and drinks are one of the biggest league fundraisers and it is 100% run by our volunteers. We need your help!
With 2-3 volunteers per shift (typically three hours), there is no experience necessary. We offer training during the season and work to partner new volunteers with Canteen veterans for their first shift when we can. There are also easy, step by step directions available.
A shift includes prep time to set up the hot dog and popcorn machines, air fryers, and and start a few burgers as well as clean up time. The bulk of the shift will be selling food, snacks, candy, and drinks for baseball players and fans. It is a great way to spend a few hours meeting others and helping to support the Suncook Little League!
*This Role qualifies for $50 Volunteer Credit per player towards your registration. Minimum Conditions are 1 training session and covering a minimum of 2 shifts.
Field Preparation volunteer responsibilities will include learning proper techniques for raking and lining the field before and after each Minors and Majors Division game.
The Field Prep Manager is responsible for scheduling the Field Prep volunteers to insure each game has preparation coverage. The manager may also have special projects for maintaining and/or improving the field on off-game days and will be responsible for coordinating and scheduling those projects.
*This Role qualifies for $50 Volunteer Credit per player towards your registration. Minimum Conditions are 1 training session and covering a minimum of 2 games and/or projects.
A team's Manager may request the assistance of a parent to take responsibility of the TeamSnap App communications or fulfilling some other team-centric role. This would be considered a Team Parent.
In the Farm, Minors, Majors, and Intermediate Divisions, it is required for the teams to keep an Official Team Gamebook. Often, one of the Coaches will be responsible for filling out the Scorebook during games.
