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 the local level, Little League relies on a devoted legion of adult volunteers to help ensure that the organization remains structured and runs smoothly. Floral Park Little League program is always looking for responsible and enthusiastic individuals to support and coordinate Little League events and activities. As a volunteer, you should have a keen interest in the safety, well-being, and overall development of children. You will discover that the benefits of volunteering are endless.
No experience is required to become a volunteer. Most of the volunteer opportunities require little or no training. We will provide you with any necessary training (as well as support and encouragement). The best volunteers are those who are able to bring added enjoyment to the game simply be being themselves. What you see during Little League games is a mere fraction of what you can do as a volunteer. You can help as a Manager who will run the team along with 2 or 3 coaches or if you prefer you can volunteer to help out as one of the coaches.
ABOVE ALL ELSE, MANAGERS AND COACHES MUST REALIZE THAT THEY ARE HELPING TO SHAPE THE PHYSICAL, MENTAL, AND EMOTIONAL DEVELOPMENT OF YOUNG PEOPLE
Positions ARE Limited
PLEASE NOTE: “Indication of a willingness to volunteer and submission of a background check are not a guarantee of selection as a team manger or assistant coach.”
Help give back to your community, earn volunteer credit, and revisit one of the best times of your life.
We are looking for volunteers to help mentor our younger baseball and softball players

LAST YEAR’S 2019 CARD IS NOT VALID FOR 2020, NEW CARDS WILL BE ISSUED TO EVERY MANAGER AND COACH
AS OF 3/1/2018 Little League International has switched background providers from First Advantage to JDP. Due to this switch EVERY volunteer must complete an application in full to volunteer, every year. That app will be needed to be completely filled out with SS#.
IF you were a volunteer in 2019 AND had a league issued ID card, you STILL need to fill out the application BUT you do not need to upload a head shot picture or a Drivers license UNLESS you have moved, if you have moved than we will need a copy of your drivers license with the new address.
The league appreciates your time and commitment.
