The manager of a team is ultimately responsible for the team. The manager drafts the team (in tryout divisions, schedules and plans the practices, organizes team volunteers (coaches, team parents, scorekeeper, etc.), coaches the team, and is the primary contact between the league and the team.
A coach helps the manager coach the team and performs any other duties assigned by the manager. A manager can recruit as many coaches as needed but there may only be two coaches with the manager in the dugout during a game.
A team parent is someone who wants to help out with the team any way he/she can. They help out during practices, volunteer to umpire the field when necessary, coordinates treat ticket schedules, etc. If they team parent interacts with the players, a volunteer application needs to be completed so a background check can be done.
LLL utilizes trained adults to be umpires for many of the upper divisions and they volunteer their time. For Teeball and Instructional (Coach-Pitch) divisions, coaches call the outs. Umpires are assigned by the Umpire-in-Chief for the individual divisions.

A concession runner helps the cashiers in the concession stand by filling orders, bagging popcorn and hotdogs, etc. A typical shift would be 2 1/2 - 3 hours per night. We would need to know how many shifts you are interested in working so you can be scheduled by the concession director.
The Saturday before the season starts is typically field cleanup day. LLL invites all players and their families to come and spruce up their fields and the grounds to get them ready for the opener. We also encourage managers to build team unity by bringing their whole team to work together.
After the season is completed, there is always work that needs to be done to repair the fields and get them ready for the winter. This is also a time for special projects to be completed.
