Volunteers Make CRLL a hit!

Volunteer Program Information

Parent volunteer time is a key reason why CRLL can keep registration fees low, while still maintaining an excellent playing environment, quality equipment, and facilities for the children.

 

2022  Annual Volunteer Commitment

For each child registered in CRLL, a family is required to work 2 Dibs volunteer shifts (for up to 2 players. The 3rd and subsequent players DO NOT require volunteer time). This results in a MAXIMUM of 4 shifts per family.  See column at right for information about our Junior Worker program!

Each family is required to submit a $200 deposit check per player (up to 2 players). Teams will not receive uniforms until all checks are submitted. Checks will be returned (or destroyed) once your volunteer hours have been confirmed by the League Volunteer Coordinator (Jen McNamara).

Coaches only need to volunteer for one shift ($100.00 deposit per player, up to 2 players), though both managers and coaches are asked to assist during the season at various special events (i.e., field preparation days, Pitch Hit & Run) as well as during post-season tournaments and events (generally in June/July).

Once volunteer shifts have been created, they can be found on the site! They are now listed on the "Dibs" Section of www.playcrll.com

Volunteer opportunities include:

  • BBQ snack shack
  • Pitch Hit and Run
  • Friday Night Special “Food Prep”
  • Weekly Shack maintenance; cleaning, inventory, restock 
  • Field Prep Day
  • Other Special Events posted to DIBS
  • Playoff/Tournament Opportunities (Score Keeper, Field Prep, Announcer, Pitch Count, Runners)

 

Volunteer questions can be directed to Jen McNamara

Snack Bar questions can be directed to Pam White

 

THANK YOU for all you do to support CRLL and the kids!

Junior Worker Program

Over the years, CRLL has tried various arrangements to allow families the flexibility of hiring a student instead of working their required volunteer hours themselves. Trying to find the right balance of league and parent responsibility to ensure the volunteer needs (i.e. snack shack) are met is tricky. As a league, and in-line with Little League International’s recommendation, we do not want to hire employees to staff the Snack Shack. The League considers junior workers volunteers but parents and juniors may make an arrangement whereby the parent compensates the youth who take their place. 

Families can choose to contact a junior worker to work in lieu of  their required volunteer shifts themselves. This is a much less expensive way to fulfill the requirement rather than having your $200 check cashed. It also gives the youth in our community an opportunity to be a part of our program and learn valuable skills. 

PROCESS

1.  Sign-up on Dibs for a shift marked “Adult or Student” with your name and your player’s name. 

2. Contact our volunteer coordinator Jen McNamara via email (jmcnamara08@gmail.com) and request a Junior Worker for that specific shift. 

3. Jen will provide a few names of approved students for you to contact and confirm. 

4. You are responsible for paying the student their rate of $11/hour for the shift. Please pay in cash.
