Volunteer Information

Volunteers Wanted!

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.

And we need your help!

Volunteer Frequently Asked Questions

  • 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 Gates Chili Little League we rely on a devoted legion of adult volunteers to help ensure that the organization remains structured and runs smoothly. We are always looking for responsible and enthusiastic individuals to support and coordinate Gates Chili 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 Gates Chili 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 GCLL 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?

    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. For your convenience we have included the downloadable PDF forms on this page.

  • 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 be being themselves. What you see during Gats Chili 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.
