Western Little League is an organization designed to build good citizens. It is a program of leadership, preparing today's youth to be tomorrow's leaders. Western Little League relies on a devoted legion of adult volunteers to help ensure that our organization remains structured and runs smoothly. We are 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. By reading further, you will discover that the benefits of volunteering are endless. You will also gain a better understanding of why you should become involved, who volunteers are, what you can do, and how you can sign up
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 Western Little League are strongly encouraged to volunteer. As a parent, volunteer, you have the opportunity to spend quality time with your child in a safe, fun-filled environment. Oftentimes, parent and child social lives parallel each other. 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 Western Little League the right to conduct necessary background checks.

Tee Ball 4-7 (only 7 year olds who need to play down for safety reasons should do this)
Minors 9-11 There will be a few players who were 7 last year and had 1 year of Rookie who will now be 9 year olds. Per our local rule, if safety is an issue with any of these kids we can push them down if necessary. They need to play up if possible.
By allowing 11 year olds in minors the 9 year olds form last year who are now 11 have an option to play up or stay down. This will also allow 11 year olds who are not drafted by Intermediate teams to play down.
As for summer teams, we will use the April 30 birthday unless that age group wants to play in districts.
