Volunteers Needed for the 2023 Season

Hello, ONLL families!

We hope you had a great summer break, and are enjoying cheering on our very own San Diego Padres in the playoffs! Here at ONLL we are excited to be gearing up for our Spring 2023 Season, with registration opening soon!

But first, we need to consolidate our Board of Directors for the Spring season and are looking for additional volunteers. Our League currently serves over 300 kids and their families, with only around 10 Board members at any given time. It takes a lot to run a season, and we have numerous Board members who have filled two to three roles over the past years. ONLL is 100% volunteer-driven, and we would love to see it grow but we need more hands in order to help our league grow and provide more events, etc. for our players!

There are many positions available every year, some that require a larger commitment and others that just require a few hours a month in addition to a monthly Board meeting, typically from October through June. Here are just some of the positions typically available on the Board (vacancies vary from season to season):
~President – Presides at league meetings, and assumes full responsibility for the operation of the league. The President receives all mail, supplies and other communications from Little League International. The President must see to it that the league personnel are properly briefed on all phases of rules, regulations, and policies of Little League.

~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 such duties and assignments as may be delegated by the President.

~Player Agent – Conducts 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.

~Safety Officer – Coordinates all safety activities; ensures safe playing conditions; coordinates reporting and prevention of injuries; solicits suggestions for making conditions safer, and reports suggestions to Little League International through the league President.

~Equipment Officer – Coordinates the purchasing of and distribution to all League equipment to managers; also receives equipment back at the end of the season.

~Groundskeeper – Coordinate the fields being in prime condition, not only for aesthetics but also safety for our players; purchases items as necessary for the fields (ie chalk).

~Purchasing Agent – Coordinates the purchasing of all uniforms (regular season and All-Stars) as well as fan gear.

~Information Officer / Web Admin – Manages the league’s official home page,  assigns administrative rights to league volunteers and team; ensures that league news and scores are updated on a regular basis; collects, posts and distributes important information on league activities including direct dissemination of fund-raising.

~Umpire-in-Chief – Ensures all umpires are educated and trained; schedules umpires for all games.

~Division Representatives (Lowers and Uppers) – Assist with league try-outs and equipment handout and return, coordinate practice schedules, reschedule rainouts, and handle and resolve issues with managers and coaches.

~Coaching Coordinator – Represents coaches/managers in league; gains the support and funds necessary to implement a league-wide training program; orders and distributes training materials to players, coaches and managers; coordinates mini-clinics as necessary; serves as the contact person for Little League and its manager/coach education program for the league.

Interested in serving with a friend? Great news! There are several positions that are great for two or more people (ie Snack Bar Coordinator and Groundskeeper).

We are kicking off our first Board meeting of the season on Thursday, October 27 at 6:30 pm at Killer Pizza From Mars. If you would like to join the Board, or just have more questions, please feel free to come join us next Thursday as we kick off the new season. While serving on the Board is a commitment, there is also great accomplishment and reward in watching the kids out on the fields playing America’s great pastime.

Hope to see you there!
