Volunteer Opportunity

Southern Little League is looking for a couple of volunteers to work together to schedule umpires for the Minor and Major league games. This is a great opportunity to get involved with the younger umpires and teach them valuable life lessons off the field. The umpire program teaches responsibility, time management, and the benefits of earning money. This is a very rewarding opportunity and only requires a couple of hours per week. Previous umpiring or coaching experience is not needed. If you are organized and enjoy spending time with the a great group of kids at Southern Little League, this is a perfect fit. For more information please contact Jeff Elble at or at 942-0956.
