Volunteer Opportunities & Help Needed!

The Charlottesville Babe Ruth League is a 100% volunteer-run organization serving all of the Charlottesville area. We enjoy brining quality baseball to your family but we need help to continue our work. The league functions best when those with a vested interest in our success get involved and help improve the programs that we offer. We are in need of several volunteers for board positions.

Vice President/Commissioner:
Sample Duties for the Vice President & Commissioner include:

  • Attend the evaluations, coach’s meetings, drafts, clinics, opening day, and all-star selections
  • Work to resolve issues and answer questions others have
  • Notify coaches about any pertinent league documents or policies
  • Assist coaches with parent contact if they are having difficulty
  • Attend the coaches meeting and address all new coaches making sure everyone understands the rules
  • Work with the Equipment Manager to make sure each team has a full set of catcher’s gear, balls, and helmets
  • Provide general CBRL training/orientation to all coaches

Volunteer Coordinator:
The CBRL board is lookingfor someone who would like to be the "Volunteer Coordinator" for the league. Being the Volunteer Coordinator will check all the boxes for volunteer responsibilities (including concessions duty) for your family. The League could possibly have two Volunteer Coordinators - one for each division.

The League will work closely with the person who takes this role for as long as is needed.

Sample Duties for the Volunteer Coordinator include:

  • Make concessions assignments at the beginning of the season and when playoff dates are announced. We use SignUp Genius for this - it's very easy.
  • Introduce yourself to the Team Leads and put them in touch with each other.
  • Train any new Team Lead on how the concession stand works.
  • Help the League document supplemental tasks completed each season for each registered family.

The Team Leads are responsible for ensuring the family assigned to run concessions shows up for that assignment - that is not the Volunteer Coordinator's responsibility. However, the Volunteer Coordinator will help ensure that slots are fully assigned and will work with teams to help find replacements when schedule conflicts arise.

Social Media Help Wanted:
Do you have a special interest in or talent with Social Media? The Charlottesville Babe Ruth Leauge is seeking to expand our social media presence to include Twitter and Instagram, in addition to Facebook. If you would like to help the league with this endeavor, please email Alice Riccabona. Volunteer work of this nature will satisfy your supplemental volunteer tasks for the year!
