Volunteers are Parents

Alderwood Little League is run by all volunteers. It is the parents of the players who must all step up and take a role in running the league. Everyone is encouraged to volunteer in some capacity during the season in one of many roles. Some of the most common are: manager, coach, practice helper, umpire, team parent, concession stand, fundraiser coordinator, field maintenance, etc. Please offer your assistance and help us out. With everyone's dedication to the children, we will maintain a high quality youth program.

Alderwood Little League provides training for all of the volunteer positions. Coaches' clinics are open to all managers, coaches, and parents, and take place in early March. Managers and coaches are also encouraged to attend the players' clinics which occur in January and at the start of our Fall Ball program.
