As a non-profit organization we depend on volunteers to make things work. We are looking for a few people to help volunteer this spring season. There are multiple areas that we need your help. If you are interested in more information about any of the following, OR you would be able to volunteer for any of these positions, please email me ASAP (firstname.lastname@example.org). We know time is very valuable for everyone and getting players and other family members where they need to be sometimes requires additional planning. But as we continue to grow, we need more people to help with the volunteer efforts. Thank you for your help and consideration.
