Some leagues, I am not sure how many, will offer volunteers, coaches and umpires classes on what they want to do to help. Umpires go to clinics. Many miles of driving to these. From where I am, there is St. Pete and then there are the state clinics in two to three places in Georgia. This is where I come in as an insturctor.
Then there are coaches clinics. This is to help coaches who need help in undersatnding the fundamentals of the game, how to teach the kids how to hit, field, catch and throw.
Now, the other is scorekeepers. That pretty much says it all. But, there are leagues where moms and dads dod the books. The downfall of that, and I have seen it, moms or dads who keep the book while THEIR own kid is playing. Sometimes their kid get three hits in a game when I called him out on strikes four times. Go figure.
Little League offers many clinics and classes. If your kid is playing with Little League or you are working with Little League, you might want to browse around their web site.Here is a part of the site. This is rules changes.
