VOLUNTEER ROLES

These are the volunteer opportunities. Please be sure to sign up on the signup form for:

Please be sure to sign up on the signup form:

  • Work Parties: Work parties are essential to keep our fields to the high standard our players deserve. Work parties involve moderately physically demanding maintenance work like rake, shovel, weeding, painting, pressure washing etc. please be sure to wear appropriate shoes and bring your own work or gardening gloves. Get to know your fellow team parents.
  • Merchandise Table: On various weekends, we have a merchandise table to sell Whalley gear at the park. We sell our custom-branded shirts, sweaters, bags and other cool products.
  • Bat-a-thon: The batathon is our largest fundraiser for the league and we need a lot of hands and feet to make it a success. We need volunteers on the day of the event to help produce a fun, carnival-like atmosphere while teams complete their batathon hitting competition.
  • Maintenance Work (Mechanical, Electrical, Carpentry, Welding, Painting): Parents and family who have specialized skills are needed to address regular maintenance around the park. We have diamond grooming tractors that need a maintenance touch, electrical maintenance work on lights and plugs. Complete drywall, electrical, and decorating work in the clubhouse. Whether a hobby, or by trade, we need all the handy people we can get.

This will be on a flexible schedule to suit. Please reach out to vicepresident@whalleylittleleague.com if interested.

  • Dedicated Skilled Photographers and Videographers: The Whalley Volunteer Committee is seeking out a photographer who can commit to several days at the park and take good photos of our players in action for use in social media and the website. We are also looking for assistance with videoing a how-to video on field maintenance. Both specialized opportunities will count towards volunteer hours, depending on the time committed. Please reach out to vicepresident@whalleylittleleague.com if interested.
  • Photo Day: We need a couple parents or family members to help ensure that our photo day runs smoothly and efficiently. This involves organizing the teams as they come in and out of the make-shift picture studio.
  • Parents with a Truck: From time to time, collecting various surplus items around the park and transporting them to the local transfer station is required. If you have a truck and are up to this it will be on a flexible schedule to suit. Please reach out to burke88@telus.net if interested.

 

 

CANCELLATION NOTICE AND PROCEDURE

  • Volunteers must provide a minimum of 24 hours cancellation notice once signed-up for a volunteer activity; failing to provide 24 hour- notice will result in the volunteer deposit being cashed by the League
  • If you need to cancel your volunteer assignment, please remove your name from the signup website
  • Rain outs are out of our control and our volunteer coordinators will do everything we can to get notice to you fast. Occasionally we get rained out so close to, or during, the game or work party and we are not able to give notice. We realize this can be inconvenient for all volunteers including the scheduled coaches. We rely a lot on the volunteer strength of our league so if your volunteer hours get cancelled due to rain you will be credited for the hours worked and the remaining will be rescheduled.

 

Thank you for your time and dedication to making Whalley Little League a successful organization.

 

We are all the league.
