Volunteering Roles Available
One-on-one assistance for our athletes. We encourage athletes to do as much as they can on their own, and the buddies are there to help with the rest. Sometime it’s hand over hand assistance, while other times it’s simply running along side showing support and giving encouragement and high fives. Buddies provide friendship and support, both on and off the field.
(We require that coaches have at least one season’s experience as a buddy before coaching.) Coaches take more of a supervision and structure role. They are there to help with sign ins, maintaining smooth flow of the game, ensuring proper equipment is used, matching buddies to athletes, and providing support. Coaches often will fill in as a buddy as needed.
Other roles that are equally as important and may sometimes need to be filled by various Volunteers include running of the scoreboard, helping with concessions, running of music on iTunes, announcing games, bat safety, and playground monitoring.
