SoundView Little League

SoundView Little League


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 need folks at every age level to help make SoundView Little League run. You can click the button below or sign up during player registration. In February, we'll need folks to help out with field maintenance. We're also always looking for more people interested in serving in league-wide positions on the board. Remember that all SoundView families are asked to contribute 2 hours of volunteer time per season, or pay a $40 exemption fee at registration. 

If you're interested in learning more, or potentially joining the board, please contact us at [email protected].

We're always looking for people in these basic roles, with some variance based on age and division level.
