Volunteer Requirements - Please Read

Santa Clara Westside Little League is a non-profit, volunteer-based organization. We offer two recreational baseball programs year-round (the traditional Spring season and the developmental-based Fall Ball) for the youth of our local community.

One of the goals of the SCWLL Board is to encourage participation in Little League Baseball through volunteer support. We are a 100% volunteer led, non-profit organization. There are no paid employees on the Board or otherwise, with the exception of some youth and adult umpires that are paid (some of our umpires are still 100% volunteers). Our league could not successfully run without the support of our amazing Westside families. Please consider volunteering today!

  • Opportunities and values may be updated over time.  Please check back on this page periodically for the most up-to-date information about volunteer opportunities with SCWLL
 
Volunteer Requirements have two parts; volunteer hours and snack shack shift:

  • Each family is required to accrue 10 volunteer hours during the season. Additionally, one three-hour snack shack shift is required per player. There will be a $250 charge after the close of the season—within 30 days of closing ceremonies—if the volunteer commitment is not completed. Players will be excluded from all Post Season play and following Seasons if there is a balance on your account at the end of the season. 

  • A $300 buy-out option is available at registration to eliminate the 10-hour family volunteer requirement. This buy-out does not include your snack shack shift(s).

  • The Challenger Division does not require any volunteer fees.

Major League Baseball® Pitch, Hit & Run™ (PHR™) is a free event that creates a safe and fun environment for kids to stay active and learn or continue to play baseball and softball in their local communities.
