Why Should I Become a PEB Volunteer in 2017

Why Should I Become a Volunteer in 2017
Pony Express Baseball is an organization designed to build good citizens. It is a program run by leaders, preparing today's youth to be tomorrow's leaders. At the local level, Pony Express Baseball relies on a devoted legion of adult volunteers to help ensure that the organization remains structured and runs smoothly. In a few short years we have grown from 400 players to over 1100 young men and women and we will see continued growth with the completion of Hyde Park and the beautiful facility there. Future plans are to host USSSA Tournaments for all age and skill levels, umpiring clinics, coaching clinics and so much more. As had as this is to believe, we have run the last 3 seasons with a Board staff of 7 volunteers. Please note the word VOLUNTEERS, like yourself we have full time jobs that require an enormous amount of time, but we spend many hours working on Pony Express Baseball activities because of our love and passion for not only the game of baseball but because we know it is our civic responsibility to help the men and women grow into our next wave of leaders, educators an carry the torch going forward of Pony Express Baseball.

Pony Express Baseball is always looking for responsible and enthusiastic individuals to support and coordinate Pony Express Baseball 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.

Who Can Volunteer?
Anyone can apply to become a volunteer. Whatever talents or skills you have, we can use them! Across the city, volunteers are grandparents, siblings, aunts and uncles, retirees, community leaders, former Pony Express Baseball players, friends, neighbors, and more. Any community member who wishes to become a volunteer may apply.

ll parents of children involved in Pony Express Baseball 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, Pony Express Baseball, 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 Pony Express Baseball. When you apply to become a volunteer, you give the Pony Express Baseball organization the right to conduct necessary background checks, the same we require of our coaches and managers.

How Do I Become A Volunteer?
Parents, we strongly encourage you take a minute to come to our monthly board meetings, which you can find posted on the Pony Express website or by calling your coach for information.

However, if you are not a parent and would like to volunteer, please come to the board meetings as well take a minute to find out what we are all about and what we see the future holds for our great organization.

What Can I Volunteer To Do?
No experience is required to become a volunteer. Most of the volunteer opportunities require little or no training. Pony Express Baseball will provide you with any necessary training (as well as support and encouragement), as they deem necessary. The best volunteers are those who are able to bring added enjoyment to the game simply be being themselves. What you see during Pony Express Baseball games is a mere fraction of what you can do as a volunteer. You can volunteer to help in virtually any aspect of Pony Express Baseball and I promise your player will love seeing you involved with their activity.

Sincerely,

Mike McAllister    Pony Express Baseball 10U Director
