Little League Baseball & Softball International
Elmer Little League provides Baseball and Softball programs for boys and girls ages 5 through 16. Our main goal is to provide a sports program for our children to learn the fundamentals of Baseball or Softball, participate in a team sport and have a whole lot of fun! Following the guidelines set by Little League Baseball, Inc., playing a team sport can teach a child discipline, character, loyalty, commitment, and courage.

Elmer LL Parents: We have a problem—our Board of Directors reorganization meeting last week did not go well. So few people showed up that we were not able to vote anyone into any of the positions. Our next meeting will take place Thursday, Nov. 1, at 8:30 pm, Elmer Borough Hall, first floor.
While there are a few individuals who said they would be willing to fill some of the spots if no one else said they would, there are two positions that are absolutely critical and we must find volunteers otherwise we will have to significantly raise our fees next season.
POSITIONS ABSOLUTELY CRITICAL TO THE LEAGUE
Sponsor Coordinator: Cheryl Cagle did a fantastic job the past two years, but her children have now left the league so she is understandably moving on to other volunteer positions. The sponsor coordinator is a short term assignment. The position requires someone who can coordinate the mailing of solicitation letters/invoices to sponsors in January and February and keep track of who paid and for what (eg, team sponsorship, sign sponsor, donation). Cheryl was able to raise nearly $20K this past year by just sending out a bunch of letters. An incredible job!
Concession Stand Coordinator: Jessica Ambruster did a great job keeping everything running smoothly, with the help of a few others. Concession stand sales pay for the cost of the umpires each season and a good portion of the uniforms. At $60 for each umpire, we would have to raise fees considerably to cover the loss associated with closed concessions. The position requires ordering food for both concession stands, making sure to go to the store when supplies run low, training coaches and parents about how to use the concession stand and helping coordinate coverage of the stands during All Stars. The absolute best way to tackle this effort is to have two or more volunteers work together.
Please help the league find people to fill these positions. It’s going to be very difficult to move forward with out them. Contact Joe Cardona,email@example.com, 609-221-1962, with questions or to volunteer. Thanks.
The Little League® Challenger Program was founded in 1989, and is Little League’s adaptive baseball program for individuals with physical and intellectual challenges.
Any individual with a physical or intellectual challenge may participate. If an individual can participate in the traditional Little League Baseball or Softball program with reasonable accommodations they should do so. The Little League Challenger Division accommodates players ages 5 to 18
