Deltona Little League Volunteers
Deltona Little League encourages you to volunteer. The entire league is composed of volunteers who dedicate their time to youth, and the league thrives when many volunteers share the workload. If you would like to volunteer, contact a board member or sign up as a volunteer during the player registration process at the start of the spring or fall season.
 
To work with players, you must be approved by the board following the completion of a volunteer application. The application process includes a mandatory background check. All managers, coaches, team moms/dads and others who volunteer must complete a volunteer application. You must provide a photo copy of your driver's license or state-issued ID card during the registration process.
 
In addition to coaches and managers, the league always needs concession stand volunteers, scoreboard operators, umpires and clean-up crew members. High School students can earn their volunteer hours needed for graduation/scholarships. The DLL Board of Directors also seeks volunteers to serve on committees and as board members. These individuals help the league with special events, field maintenance and improvement, fundraising, special projects, scheduling of games and practices, uniform preparation and distribution and other tasks. If you are interested in joining our team, contact a board member or call the DLL number at 386-574-4900 or send email to [email protected].

Being an Umpire

Aside from calling ball or strike, safe or out, umpires are responsible for teaching players good sportsmanship and the rules of the game. Umpires are also called upon to interpret rules and help settle minor disputes that may occur during games.

Most Little League games have one home plate umpire and a minimum of one field umpire. Before becoming a home plate umpire you may be required to participate in training sessions and seminars.

While home plate umpires are scheduled well in advance, field umpires are often determined minutes before the game begins. As you arrive at your child’s game, your coach or the home plate umpire may ask you to be the field umpire. When you agree, your main responsibilities are to call plays on the bases, determine if balls are fair or foul, and assist the home plate umpire with other calls.

Selling Concessions

Because all Little League playing facilities are different, the responsibilities of a concession stand volunteer vary by league. The job may simply involve standing behind a counter and filling orders, or it may require that you buy, prepare, transport and/or store various concessions.


Sponsorship Opportunites 

Deltona Little League is gearing up for what we hope to be another successful season of Baseball and Softball. We at Deltona Little League feel it is of the utmost importance to reach out to as many organizations and ask for a helping hand. Deltona Little League is a Non-Profit Community Organization, which strives to offer our young people an opportunity to learn valuable life lessons through organized team sports.

Deltona Little League is full of exceptional managers, coaches and, most importantly, children that dedicate a large amount of their time to practice on the field and preparing for games and eventually the State wide tournaments.  They have a safe haven here on our fields, where they can make friends, have fun, and learn the meaning of a team as well as necessary life lessons like responsibility.  As well as the time they spend on the playing field they dedicate their time to maintain high academic standards.  All of which is building strong young adults who surely will make a difference in our community.

So, once again, thank you for any financial assistance in helping make our league the best it can be. Any donation, large or small, really makes a difference in our children’s lives.  If you would like to be a sponsor, please call the DLL number at 386-574-4900 or send email to [email protected].
