Volunteers Needed!

Hi everyone!

We have had some inquiries about the Board of Director Roles but no new volunteers just yet. I have attached an explanation of the roles and the duties each role would oversee below. Please note that several of these duties listed will be fulfilled by other parent volunteers during the season and will just need to be supervised by the Director. As you can see, I have tried my best to spread my current duties out so the Director roles are very manageable as a volunteer role for the season. This league runs completely on volunteers and will only succeed with your help! Please consider joining our Board. Have a great week!
