The success of Soundview Little League relies heavily on our volunteers. With each year, as kids move in and out of the league, so do our volunteers. We are always looking for people to share their time and talents to make this a great experience for the kids. That is where you come in.
We know everyone is busy! All of our current volunteers can say the same thing. To make this easier, we break down many of the roles into smaller or dedicated functions so people can better understand what they are signing up for and not feel so overwhelmed. We welcome those with strong project, process and leadership skills to volunteer for officer and other board roles. As always, we seek all that are willing to help make this a great experience for the kids and have as big and as small of a role that fits your skills and abilities.Volunteer Roles:Event Coordinator:
