Looking for Volunteers to Coach or help run the League



Fall baseball season signals the start of a new baseball year for the AFPBA. Along with that comes the need to reach out and find new parents interested in taking a more active role in teaching their children the great game of baseball (or softball).

If you are interested in volunteering as a head coach, assistant coach, umpire, team parent or as an elected or volunteer board member, please indicate your interest in the check boxes or comments as you register your child.

The younger Shetland teams take as many as 5 or 6 parents to 'coach' a game or practice while the older teams can function with 3 or 4. No gradaute Physics of Baseball degree required, just a passion for the game and a desire to pay it forward.

The board has a variety of positions that require a wide range of time commitments - from one time Spring Season Only tasks to all year long duties. As players age out of the League or families move away, it is important to have new faces bring energy and enthusiasm along with new ideas and constructive critiques to make our baseball league a better place.

To volunteer or learn more about the opportunities - please contact our league President - Ron Ensley - by clicking on his name to send him an email.

We look forward to seeing you on the field or at a board meeting!
