The League is a 100% volunteer based.

It takes the effort of our entire adult membership to provide our children with the type of Little League experience they deserve!

The Mwll makes a determined effort to enlist the best adults in the community to serve as Head coach and assistant coaches. Screening of coaches and others who have contact with our children is of the utmost importance. 

Volunteers are required to Coach teams, assistants are needed as support.

 Why Should I Become a Volunteer?

Little League Baseball and Softball is an organization designed to help children become good citizens. It is a program that instills leadership, preparing today's youth to be tomorrow's leaders. The MWLL relies solely on adult volunteers to help ensure that the organization remains structured and runs efficiently.

We 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.

Who Can Volunteer?

Anyone can apply to become a volunteer. Whatever talents or skills you have, we can use them! 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. This allows you to be an epic role model to your child by teaching them to give back to their communities. As a parent, volunteer, you have the opportunity to spend quality time with your child in a safe, fun-filled environment. Volunteering allows your life and your child's life to intersect on common ground, with shared interests and goals.

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.

What Can I Volunteer to Do?
