Register as a volunteer online, and specify which type of position and level you are interested in.

2. Volunteer Application & Background Check (Required for all volunteers)

Watch your inbox for an email with a subject of "SALMON CREEK LITTLE LEAGUE Background Questionnaire Notification". These invitations will be sent out to volunteers after they register online. The email will be sent from and take you to the JD Palantine web site to complete your background check.

This is a National Little League requirement. Volunteers cannot participate in any activity with children until they have passed the background check and have been approved by the Board.

8. Umpire Clinics

Each team must have a least one representative at the umpire clinic. It is recommended that all coaches attend. See the calendar page for times and dates.
