TOMS RIVER LITTLE LEAGUE: Work Bonds & Volunteerism
TRLL is run via the dedicated service of volunteers. Each TRLL family is required to work a minimum of 5 hours to help run our volunteer organization in order to have their work bond check returned (originally collected at Spring registration).
For current work bond volunteer opportunities, please contact the TRLL Work Bond Director, Candice Butchko via email at email@example.com. TRLL will announce and post multiple opportunities throughout the year when family members can satisfy their work bond hours. The work bond can also be satisfied by helping the TRLL fundraising committee. Please contact Michele Stefan - firstname.lastname@example.org (TRLL Fundrasing Committe Director) for opportunities to help.
All managers, coaches, team mothers and other volunteers must document and submit a work bond time sheet each year to receive proper credit (no exceptions). Note that each team can have a maximum of one manager, two assistant coaches and one team mother eligible for the work bond completion.
It is the volunteer’s responsibility to properly document & keep track of the hours you have given to the League. Upon completion of your obligation, you must have your time sheet validated by a member of the TRLL Board.
DO NOT GIVE YOUR WORK BOND TIME-SHEET TO YOUR TEAM MANAGER!
You must turn in your completed, signed 2017 work bond sheet by mailing it to us at:
TRLL c/o League Bond Director PO Box 1353 Toms River, NJ 08754
You can also scan and email your 2017 work bond sheet to:
We suggest making a copy of your completed timesheet before mailing. Completed work bond forms are due no later than July 31, 2017. If you fail to submit your completed work bond form by this date, you will forfeit your work bond check to the League. No exceptions will be made. Work bonds will not be carried over to the following season.
Thank you for your dedicated volunteer service!

Why Should I Become a Volunteer?
Little League Baseball and Softball is an organization designed to build good citizens. It is a program of leadership, preparing today's youth to be tomorrow's leaders. At the local level, Little League relies on a devoted legion of adult volunteers to help ensure that the organization remains structured and runs smoothly. Your local Little League program is always looking for responsible and enthusiastic individuals to support and coordinate Little League events and activities. As a volunteer, you should have a keen interest in the safety, well-being, and overall development of children. By reading further, you will discover that the benefits of volunteering are endless. You will also gain a better understanding of why you should become involved, who volunteers are, what you can do, and how you can sign up.
Who Can Volunteer?
Anyone can apply to become a volunteer. Whatever talents or skills you have, we can use them! Across the country, volunteers are grandparents, siblings, aunts and uncles, retirees, community leaders, former Little Leaguers, friends, neighbors, and more. Any community member who wishes to become a volunteer may apply.
All parents of children involved in Little League Baseball and Softball are strongly encouraged to volunteer. As a parent, volunteer, you have the opportunity to spend quality time with your child in a safe, fun-filled environment. Oftentimes, parent and child social lives parallel each other. Volunteering allows your life and your child's life to intersect on common ground, with shared interests and goals.
On rare occasions, Little League, through District Administrators and your local Board of Directors, may deny individuals the privilege of volunteering for reasons, past or present, that may be detrimental to the positive development of young people, other volunteers, and/or Little League International. When you apply to become a volunteer, you give the local Little League organization the right to conduct necessary background checks.
How Do I Become A Volunteer?
TRLL will announce multiple opportunities throughout the year when volunteer help will be required. Parents, take a minute to fill out the volunteer form while registering your child. If you are not a parent and would like to volunteer, take a minute to fill out the form while visiting your local registration location. The 2017 Little League volunteer application form can also be downloaded here.
What Can I Volunteer To Do?
No experience is required to become a volunteer. Most of the volunteer opportunities require little or no training. Your local league will provide you with any necessary training (as well as support and encouragement), as they deem necessary. The best volunteers are those who are able to bring added enjoyment to the game simply by being themselves. What you see during Little League games is a mere fraction of what you can do as a volunteer. You can volunteer to help in virtually any aspect of Little League Baseball or Softball.
