INVITATION TO VOLUNTEER!
It takes a lot of planning and work, both at and away from the field, to make WMLL the special place that it is and to provide our players with everything they need to grow and have fun. There are MANY ways to volunteer at WMLL besides being a Board member, coach or team rep. Volunteer needs include single-day, single-season, flexible duration & year-long opportunities…almost all of which do not require any special knowledge of baseball/softball rules or skills.
Please contact Brian Beutter at email@example.com to learn more about volunteering at WMLL & to find an opportunity that matches up with your schedule, interests & skills.
