Highlands Little League: Volunteer Info

Are you wondering........How can I help?

Year after year the leagues success deeply depends on the dedicated volunteers. Many of them are paying it forward to thank everyone who made it possible for them to participate in a little league. No matter what your experience is with baseball, we assure you we ALWAYS have room for one more. Being a volunteer within an organized sports league gives you an amazing opportunity to positively influence and develop children's lives.

According to http://www.littleleague.org/ "All local Little Leagues are required to conduct background checks on managers, coaches, board of director members and any other persons, volunteers or hired workers, who provide regular service to the league and/or have repetitive access to, or contact with, players or teams. Individuals are also required to complete and submit a Little League Volunteer Application to their local league."
