1More than 200 parents, friends and neighbors volunteer to help run Capitol Hill Little League. We’re always looking for volunteers to help as coaches, umpires, ground crews, scorekeepers and in other ways.

Here are some of our main volunteer categories:
Managers – With more than 40 teams, CHLL relies on its managers to be the leader of each squad, setting the course for the team, communicating with parents, running practice and setting the line-up.
Coaches – No team can be run by one person. Each team typically has 2-3 coaches to help the manager run the team, run drills, serve as bench coach, third base coach, and step in when the manager is away.
Umpires – Volunteer umpires play a critical role in the success of our program. We use volunteer umpires for our AAA division baseball games, which are played on Saturday afternoons and occasional weeknights. We provide training and equipment/gear.
Grounds crews – Keeping Capitol Hill fields in great shape has become a calling card of CHLL. But it takes hard work to keep these fields in good condition, before and after every practice and every game, lining the field and batters boxes, and dragging and raking the infield. Each team has field maintenance responsibilities, but we can always use more help, especially before weekend games after rain.
Scorekeepers/pitch counters – While winning games is not the primary focus of CHLL, we do keep score (mostly) and keep track of pitch counts. Scorekeepers and pitch counters play an important role in sorting out questions with regards to batting order, as well as protecting our young pitchers from exceeding Little League mandated pitch limits.
Other roles – CHLL can always use help in other ways – help with community outreach, social media outreach, sponsorship, serving as an announcer at games, or even in helping organize volunteers.
