Preparing for the season includes the administrative responsibilities associated with operating your local league. Among these tasks are chartering for the coming season; election of the Board of Directors to oversee operation of the league; reviewing and revising your local league bylaws; purchasing insurance coverage and ASAP program implementation; background checks; and budget development. Developed in coordination with the Little League® Resource Guide, training courses have been created to provide an overview of administrative responsibilities and best practices based on the seasonality of the local league.
A strong volunteer base is at the center of every successful Little League program. From coaches to board members to umpires, every volunteer plays a part in providing a great Little League experience. During the preseason, the opportunity for the local Little League® to market and promote itself is at its highest point.
