The 2012 Northshore Little League Season does not just happen. It requires many hours by very hard working, dedicated volunteers to make it happen. This is where you come in and your help is very much needed. It is a great way to get involved with your children and community, meet new friends and have fun all at the same time. Don't be afraid to get involved as any help is appreciated and welcomed. We ask that each person volunteer his or her time to make the season successful.
Board of Directors
There are several positions still open at this time including many softball and hardball positions. There are many activities which the Board can use your help for. This is a great way to have an impact on the League's direction and vision. Take a look at the list of positions and let us know if you are interested.
There is a desperate need for umpires at all levels both in Boy's Hardball and Girl's Softball. All umpires are volunteer. If your child played last year without a uniformed umpire it was because there were none available. This is where the league needs you to volunteer the most. We will provide certified training to anyone interested (But you don't have to be certified to Umpire).
We offer Little League approved training to help you get started. Sign-up early so we can be ready for the start of the season.
The more coaches each team has the more the kids can learn. A great way to learn the ropes to become a Manager.
This program is trying hard to grow and provide quality competition for the girls in our community. To improve this program for your children we need a lot of help in many areas including player agents, level coordinators, managers, coaches and umpires. Now is the time to step up and volunteer to make this a program to be proud of.
Team Parents / Volunteers
Managers and Coaches provide hundreds of hours teaching baseball to your children. Without help at the team level your child's manager and coaches will be overwhelmed trying to make everything happen. Team help needed includes Umpires, field preparation, candy, uniforms, pictures, trophies, team party, treat list, score keeper and Mariners Day.
Role Of The Little League Parent
The parents of millions of Little Leaguers, combined with their youngsters, league officials, umpires, managers, coaches and countless volunteers including sponsors, represent an imposing cross section of the nation. Parents should accept the fact that they must shoulder the responsibility and take initiative to make the local program successful. Little League is not a club in which membership implies baby-sitting benefits and entertainment privileges. Practically speaking, Little League is an adult, volunteer work project constructed, supervised and assisted by volunteer parents who desire to make its benefits extend to all children. Each parent should join in the total effort. There is a place and a job for all to do. The burden of operating a league should not fall on a few. The parent who shirks this responsibility cannot in turn, expect others to assume the responsibility.
