All Gates Chili Little League personnel, including the elected board members and officers, and each of the managers, coaches, umpires, auxiliary, field workers, etc., are volunteers interested in providing the benefits of a Little League program to the youth of their community. We are always looking for new volunteers to keep our family growing!
To maintain the integrity of Little League standards:
Each volunteer must complete an annual volunteer application and submit to a national criminal background check to be eligible to participate as a league volunteer (in the positions stated above).
How is Gates Chili Little League organized?
Our league is guided by a Board of Directors, usually four to 25 adult volunteers from the community. There are now more than 6,500 Little League programs in nearly 90 countries around the world.
Although Little League regulations do not prohibit payments to umpires or other personnel, such employment is strongly discouraged. Those who work with children at the local league level should be interested only in volunteering their time to make their community a better place.
The Gates Chili Little League Board of Directors, elected from and by the adult members of the league, is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the league within the rules, regulations and policies of Little League.
