To all managers and coaches...this is meant to be a section of the site specifically for your aid and benefit. Please let me know if you have any ideas, suggestions or information you would like me to share in this space.
Volunteer Form 2017
Every prospective manager candidate is required to fill out and turn in a 2017 VOLUNTEER FORM before his/her interview. In addition, a copy of a current, valid drivers license is also required. If you click on the link above, you can fill out the form on your computer, print it out and sign it, and either mail it (along with copy of your CDL, if needed) to SLVLL at P.O. Box 1208, Felton, CA, 95018 (or give it directly to League Information Officer Sue Sutherlin or SLVLL President Larry Ebright.
Before any assistant coaches (or other volunteers) may work with the team, they must also fill out a volunteer form, provide a copy of his/her drivers license, and be run through the background check.
Volunteer forms must be filled out EVERY year; your drivers license will remain on file until it expires, or you cease to be involved with SLVLL, whichever comes first. These are required by Little League International, along with a background check through First Advantage (*Note from your information officer/webmaster - a social security number is required for this check. I personally white-out the number after I run the check. I take your personal information very seriously, and take every precaution to protect it.)
If you have any questions or concerns about this process, please contact league president Larry Ebright.

Updated Rules Regarding Pitchers & Catchers
Please read and be familiar with updated rules regarding pitchers who also serve as catcher and vice versa.
In addition, according to page 38 in the 2010 Little League Rule book, a pitcher who has pitched 41 or more pitches in a game cannot play the position of catcher for the remainder of that day.
