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.
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.
How Do I Become A Volunteer?
We have two ways you can register as a Five Town Little League volunteer at any level. This is needed for all adults who volunteer at any level of Little League: coaches, umpires, concessions helpers, etc.
If you are a new volunteer or haven't previously completed a "Little League Volunteer Application." If you completed an application in 2017, you can use the "Returning Volunteer Application." You can find user-friendly web-form versions of these applications as links on the same menu where you found this article.
All applications must include a copy of your current drivers license.
Please use the form to complete the registration, and forward it to our attention in one of three ways:
1. By email (.pdf attachment) to Rick Thackeray at firstname.lastname@example.org (with a .pdf copy of your drivers license)
2. By hand delivery to a League Coordinator or Board Member
3. By mail to "Five Town Little League," P.O. Box 1426, Camden, ME 04843
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.
