Player Evaluations

 

DLL conducts player evaluations for 600-700 players each January and February.  The player evaluations will run most smoothly as long as we have enough registered volunteers.  Volunteer registration for specific Player Evaluation dates and times is available early January.  See below for an overview of the available volunteer roles.

Team Manager or Assistant Coach

 

Being a Team Manager or Assistant Coach requires time, patience, and a basic knowledge of the game. You may be required to attend meetings, instructional sessions, or seminars. You will communicate with the parents/guardians of your players to keep them informed of all League events, practices and games.

The Team Manager is the head coach and is ultimately responsible for the team. The manager drafts the team (Single A through Seniors divisions during a Spring season), plans and runs the practices, organizes team volunteers (assistant coaches, team parents, scorekeeper, etc.), coaches the team, and is the primary contact between the league and the team.

An Assistant Coach helps the Team Manager coach the team and performs any other duties assigned by the Team Manager. A Team Manager can recruit as many coaches as needed, but there may only be two assistant coaches with the Team Manager in the dugout during a game.

DLL Opening Day Volunteer (Key Volunteer, 1 from each Spring DLL Team)

Each Spring DLL team is required to have their DLL Opening Day Volunteer register online via a link to Signup Genius from the DLL website. This person will report to Crittenden Park on the morning of the Opening Day (DLL Fest) and help with Opening Day. Additional details will be posted to a folder under Documents & Rules as details become available.

DLL Nat’s Day Coordinator (Key Volunteer, 1 from each Spring DLL Team)

Each Spring DLL team is required to have their DLL National's Day Coordinator register using this online form. This person is responsible for collecting ticket money from those who will be attending DLL's Nat's Day, delivering the money to the league, picking up and distributing the tickets. Coordinating this event does not mean that you have to attend the game; you will only serve as a liaison between the team and DLL's Nat's Day Coordinator. Additional details and forms can be found under Documents & Rules.

DLL Discount Card Volunteer (Key Volunteer, 1 from each Spring DLL Team)

Each Spring DLL team is required to have their Discount Card Coordinator register online via the DLL website. DLL's Discount Card raises a good deal of money that helps cover capital improvements (lights, backstops, etc). This job requires that you distribute the Discount Cards to each player on the team, and then collect from the players the money they collected and any unsold cards. You will then return the money and any remaining cards to DLL's Discount Card Coordinator. Additional details and forms can be found under Documents & Rules.

Adult Game Coordinators (Key Volunteer, 1 from each DLL Team in the Single A, AA, AAA, Majors, Juniors and Seniors divisions)

Each Spring and Fall DLL team is required to have their Adult Game Coordinator register online via the DLL website. Responsibilities of the Adult Game Coordinator can be found on the DLL website under Documents & Rules .

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.

DLL utilizes trained junior umpires (League Age 12 and older) and adults to be umpires for many of the upper divisions and does pay trained junior umpires for their time. Training is typically offered prior to each Spring and Fall season.

Sponsorship/Fundraising

DLL is always looking for individuals interested in helping DLL acquire league sponsors and supporting other fundraising activities such as the DLL Discount Card.

Special Events Coordinator

DLL Player Evaluations (Tryouts), Opening Day, Picture Day, and National's Day are just a few of the Spring special events that you can get involved with.

Team Parent

A team parent is someone who wants to help out with the team any way he/she can. They help out during practices, volunteer to umpire the field when necessary, coordinates snack schedules, etc.

Field Maintenance

As a part of the field maintenance crew, your skills and abilities may be used to line fields, rake dirt, and perform other field preparation and maintenance.
