The Manager has primary responsibility for the team. Which may consist of, but is not be limited to receiving team roster, communication with the Division Director and Parents, and receiving league gear and key(s). He/She works with the Assistant Coaches to create practice plans, game line-up and other related team needs. If applicable (Baseball and Softball Divisions Minor and Above) the Manager participates in the player draft  and therefore must be in place before player assessments in February.  In addition, the Manager is responsible for attending player assessments (Minor Division & Above), all League Coaching Meetings including Umpire Training as well as holding a mandatory team parent meeting before 1st practice. Some game umpiring will be required at the Minors Division and above and is often split between the Manager and the (4) Assistant Coaches. However umpire volunteers do NOT have to be specifically a Coach. We encourage parents to volunteer to help out in that area as Coaches are busy with the team duties first and foremost. 

Assistant Coaches:

The Assistant Coaches have the responsibility of supporting the Manager. Each team is typically comprised of 4 Assistant Coaches. They have responsibility as interim Manager in the event the Manager is vacant for a practice or game. Duties include assisting with and executing practice plans, base coach or either dugout coach. Note at Minor and above ONLY 3 Coaches are allowed in the dugout per game. Assistant Coaches are required to attend all coach training sessions and league meetings. Some game umpiring at Minors and above will be required. Game Day 4th and 5th Coaches may be able to provide pre-game warm-up, but must be outside of the playing field during games.

Parent/Practice Helper:

A Parent/Practice Helper (commonly referred to as your 6th/7th rostered Coach per league roster) are available to assist the coaching team during practices which allows for a lower player to coach ratio and encourages more station work and less standing around for players. Parent Practice Helpers are also encouraged, but not required,  to go through umpire training (Farm, Minor & Majors). This training not only provides more knowledge to these parents, but also provides the possibility of volunteering to umpire on occasion to take some pressure off of the coaching staff. During games only the Manager, and any (2) Assistant Coaches  are allowed on the field. Game Day 4th and 5th Coaches may be able to provide pre-game warm-up, but must be outside of the playing field during games. That policy is also in place for "6th and 7th"

Team Parent:

The team parent has primary responsibility for off field organization and parent communication including concessions volunteer listmanagement, team fundraising, picture coordination and other activity coordination as determined by the teams' needs. These activities could be to hand out of uniforms, ordering player trophies, planning end of season party and creating sign-up sheet for post-game snack. Prior items are all relative and dependent on each team and Manager.

Snack Shack Volunteer:

Snack Shack volunteers are exactly that. They help in the Snack Shack. CLL has two main Snack Shacks that operate throughout the season. One is located at Bilquist Elementary with T-ball, Rookie, Farm and Minor Divisions. The other is located at Riverside Park for Minor, Major and Junior SB/BB Divisions. It is imperative that we fill out our Snack Shack volunteer shifts for the season, as the league relies heavily on the revenue for league equipment, uniforms and many other expenses. Each team usually gets assigned 3-4 shifts to cover for the season, and that information is passed onto the Team Parent and Manager to schedule. If we do not get shifts covered, our snack shack usually will remain closed. Often that becomes a huge disappointment to parents, but also to all of the participants that look forward to a tasty snack or cold refreshment post game. Snack Shack is ONLY open on game days and based on the availability of volunteers to run it.


Sometimes in our league we have parents or grandparents that would like to help, but prefer not to Coach. Often they will get involved with Umpiring. Many of our umpires continue to come back year to year because it's rewarding working with the kids and coaches and teaching/learning the game. Our umpires will work games from the Farm level and above. 

** Please note that all of our volunteer positions require individuals to register on site and complete a mandatory required Little League Background Check. Coaches are subject to Board Approval if background is complete and clear**
