VOLUNTEER at Jericho Baseball
We will be looking for Sessional Coaches and Assistant Sessional Coaches who will run one or several sessions over the course of July. These will focus on skills development.
In additional we'd like to find some help with Field Maintenance and general tasks.
Lastly we're looking for volunteers to work with our COVID-19 team to help ensure that we're practicing all safety protocol during play.
Did you know?
Jericho parent volunteers put in around 5000 hours of volunteer time every year to manage and run the league and offer baseball programs to our players. These hours do NOT even include on-field coaching, field prep, and scorekeeping which falls under normal parental responsibilities (see below).
That works out to about 8 hours of volunteer time per registered player. Many thanks to those dedicated parents that volunteer way more than the 8 hours required to support their child and making a significant contribution to the community as a whole. THANK YOU!
Parents are required to be at the field supervising their children during all practice and game times. For liability reasons, our volunteer coaches cannot accept parental responsibility for your children. Our coaches are focussed on providing structured practice drills to improve players’ baseball skills. They are not running a babysitting service. If a parent must leave the field for any reason, they must assign supervision of their child to a trusted friend – NOT the coaches.
Since you have to be at the field at all times anyway, you might as well help out! Bring your glove, chase down some balls, organize lines for drills, tie shoes, etc. Fields need to be prepared for play before and after games and practices, scores kept, or concessions cooked. There is no shortage of things to do. It’s fun!
