Team Parent Volunteers

Next to the Team Manager, the Team Parent Volunteer (TPV) might be the most important position.   The TPV is the Manager's right hand woman/man and keeps things running smoothly throughout the season.  This duty depends on the needs of your players’ manager.  It is critical you meet with the manager and understand his/her expectations.  Typically, TPV’s can expect to assist the coaches with communication to parents and confirm team duties are being fulfilled.   

You MUST:

·      First, talk with the manager about his/her needs.

·      Rally Volunteers! Every team is expected to have volunteers fill specific duties throughout the season.  New in 2016: electronically submit a completed TPV Volunteer Form via Google Docs.   

o   The TPV form includes name, email, and phone number of the person(s) who have volunteered for needed DLL duties.   -->  Google Doc

o   A hard copy of the form can be downloaded below

o   In some cases, forward the SignUpGenius link to the person who is representing your team and volunteer duty.  Ex: Opening Day and 4th of July Pancake Breakfast Volunteers sign up via SignUpGenius.

o   Please contact Kiby Fuchslin for access to the electronic TPV Form

·      Picture Day – TBD.  Hand out order forms and let parents know where/when to meet.

·      Communicate with parents about upcoming DLL Fundraisers. TBD

·      Organize and collect money for coach’s gifts, end of year parties, and player awards.

Your duties may include:

·      Confirm all players have turned in their medical forms.

·      New this year, DLL will provide every Team Manager with their own TeamWall Website.    Example TeamWall

·      DLL will supply a Jersey (number only on back) and a hat.  Does your team want player names on the back of their uniforms?  What color pants, socks, and belt? You can collect money for name printing on the back of jerseys. 

o   Davis Sports Shop and Ink Monkey will do this locally.

·      Make sure you have a scorekeeper and umpire/field prep (where applicable) available for each game.
