Why Should I Become a Volunteer? 
Little League Baseball and Softball 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.

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 not only parent but 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 and Softball 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. Often times, 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 the local Little League organization the right to conduct necessary background checks.

How Do I Become A Volunteer?
Those wishing to volunteer can fill out the volunteer form upon request or while registering your child.  The volunteer application form is available in the "Documents" tab on the website. This must be filled out by all volunteers. The League has to perform background checks on all volunteers every season including all coaches and board members. 

What Can I Volunteer To Do?
No experience is required to become a volunteer.  Most of the volunteer opportunities require little or no training. Your local 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 or Softball.

What Volunteer Opportunities are Available?

Become a Team Manager or Coach

Being a manager or coach requires time, patience and knowledge of the game of baseball.  You will be required to attend meetings, instructional sessions or seminars. You will communicate with the parents/guardians of your players to inform them of any schedule changes, rain outs and Bethlehem Little League events and activities as well as preparing your team for all games and practices.
As a manager or coach, you have more interaction with young people than anyone else in Little League. Therefore, it is important that you understand the goals and virtues of the Little League program in order to effectively communicate them to your players. To gain a better understanding of what those goals and virtues are, visit Little League's homepage or speak with your league's president.

Become a Team Parent

The Team Parent is the liaison between the Manager and the team parents and allows the Manager and Coaches to better focus on leading the ballplayers.  Each team needs one parent to help the coaches coordinate activities and communicate updates.  This is a great way to get to know all the families on the team!  

Help at Registration

Volunteers may be needed to help with distributing flyers for advertising the beginning of registration.

Selling Concessions

The responsibilities of the BLL concession stand volunteer are usually broken down into 3 jobs. Job 1 is taking of orders and handling of payment. Job 2 is to get food order together and make sure customer is satisfied. Job 3 is cooking of the food.
