Election of Board Members

The board of directors are elected annually at the October board meeting, except for the President, who is elected to a two year term. The required officers are: President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Player Agent and Safety Officer. If a league also operates a Senior League, and/or Big League, a Vice President or other personnel should be designated to supervise, as is the case for those leagues operating Little League, Senior League or Big League Softball programs.

Board of Directors

The management of the property and affairs of the local league shall be vested in the board of directors. The directors shall, upon election, immediately enter upon the performance of their duties and shall continue in office until their successors shall have been duly elected and qualified.

The board membership shall include the officers, including Player Agent, and a minimum of one manager and one volunteer umpire. (Only volunteer umpires may be elected to the board.) The number of managers and coaches including Minor League representation elected to the board shall not exceed a minority of the total board members. Every board member should have a copy of the Operating Manual for reference to proper operating procedures and policies.

The board of directors shall have the power to appoint such standing and special committees as it shall determine by the constitution and to delegate such powers to them as the board shall deem advisable and which it may properly delegate.

The board may adopt such rule and regulations for the conduct of its meetings and the management of the league as it may deem proper.

The board shall have the power by a two-thirds vote of those present at any regular or special meeting to discipline, suspend or remove any director or officer or committee member of the league, subject to provisions of the constitution.


President

Presides at league meetings, and assumes full responsibility for the operation of the local league. The President receives all mail, supplies and other communications from the Little League Headquarters. The President must see to it that league personnel is properly briefed on all phases of rules, regulations, and policies of Little League Baseball. The league President is the contact between the local organization and Little League Headquarters.

Vice President

Presides in the absence of the President; works with other officers and committee members; is ex-officio member of all committees and carries out duties and assignments as may be delegated by the President.

Secretary

Maintains a register of members and directors; records the minutes of the meetings; is responsible for sending out notice of meetings, issues membership cards and maintains a record of league's activities.

Treasurer

Signs checks co-signed by another officer or director; dispenses league funds as approved by the board of directors; reports on the status of league funds; keeps local league books and financial records; prepares budgets and assumes the responsibility for all local league finances.

Player Agent

Conduct annual tryouts, and is in charge of player selection, assists President in checking birth records and eligibility of players; serves as a member of the board of directors of the local league and generally supervises and coordinates the transfer of players to or from the Minor Leagues according to provisions of the regulations of Little League Baseball.

Safety Officer

Coordinates all safety activities; ensures safety in player training; ensures safe playing conditions; coordinates reporting and prevention of injuries; solicits suggestions for making conditions safer, and reports suggestions to Little League Headquarters through the league President.

Baseball and Softball Northshore Little League Seasons do 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.

Umpires

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).

Managers

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.

Coaches

The more coaches each team has the more the kids can learn. A great way to learn the ropes to become a Manager.

Girl's Softball

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.
