News and Announcements

Hello umpires or prospective umpires,

My name is Chris Leighton and I am the new umpire coordinator for South Milwaukee Little League. You are receiving this email because you have been an umpire in the past or have indicated interest in becoming a new umpire this year. Umpire Training is less than a month away so please save the dates below. To be an umpire for this upcoming season for South Milwaukee Little League you need to be 12 years old (little league age) and complete the training that will be starting in March.

If you are new to umpiring (1st year) or this will be your 2nd year being an umpire, you are required to attend classes beginning on Sunday, March 3. The classes will be held weekly on late Sunday afternoons/early evenings. The last class will be on April 7th.
If this is your 3rd year or more being an umpire, a 3 week veteran clinic will be offered on Sunday March 17th, 24th, the training classes will be held as follows:

6 Week Beginner Clinic

March 3 – April 7 (Sunday evenings from 6:00PM – 8:00PM)
Hosted at Zion Lutheran School in South Milwaukee

3 Week Veteran Clinic
March 17 – March 31 (Sunday evenings from 4:30PM – 6:00PM)
Hosted at Zion Lutheran School in South Milwaukee

1 Day Beginner Boot Camp

April 13 (Saturday from 9:00AM – 4:00PM)
Hosted by Burlington LL at Burlington High School

I am asking everyone to please respond to this email and let me know that you are still interested in being an umpire. In your response, please indicate if you will need to attend the beginner umpire clinic or if you would like to attend the veteran clinic. Failure to respond will result in removal from my list.

I will also be sending out an email in the near future to set up a meeting date closer to the season for all SMLL umpires. This will allow you to meet me and discuss some of the changes the League has made to its structure and rules which will affect our umpires. I will try to have a few of the other SMLL board members at this meeting so you can meet them and ask questions if necessary.

In addition, due to some medical issues occurring during games last year, I am requesting that everyone fill out the emergency contact form and waiver paperwork attached to this email. If you are under age 18, have your parents complete the form.

Umpire Emergency Contact Form

Thank you all for your understanding and if you have any questions, please feel free to call me at 4143888317 or by replying to this email.

Volunteering

Posted by South Milwaukee Little League at Apr 4, 2018 11:20AM PDT ( 1 Comment )

SMLL depends on the contribution of volunteer to function effectively. From getting the fields ready for Opening Day, helping out in the concession stands, taking on some umpiring or many of the other tasks that keep SMLL running, the players in our league benefit directly from your volunteer efforts. Though we depend on volunteers, we also respect that families are busy and juggling multiple commitments. We continuously work to meet the league’s needs while respecting the multiple priorities families juggle.

SMLL will again be using SignUpGenius to coordinate volunteers and we will also continue to also use a paper volunteer shift tracking system.

Signing Up for Volunteer Hours

Separate SignUpGenius sites have been set up for

Grounds Clean-Up Day

and Concession stand shortly.
The links will also be included in the top navigation bar of each team’s teampage.

Volunteer Requirement

Again this season, in order to have to volunteer deposit returned, families are require to complete three “shifts” per family (two hours of grounds work, 5:00-7:45pm or 7:15-10:00pm in the concession stand, or umpiring one game), with at least two of those shifts being served in the concession stand.

*Since there are a limited number of grounds preparation and maintenance tasks, Grounds Clean Up volunteer shifts will only be credited for those who sign up via the SignUpGenius. “Walk up” volunteers are welcome, but will receive no credit toward the volunteer deposit return. There will be no exceptions to this policy.

If you have a special skill that you are willing to offer in lieu of a concession stand shift, such as electrical work, plumbing, carpentry, etc. please contact (Tony Goodenough tongood@yahoo.com).

We are again instituting “team nights” in the concession stand. Please sign up for your team’s nights first (Included in the 2018 Parent In-Season Parent Packet). Once your team’s concession commitment is filled, you are welcome to select shifts on other evenings.

Tracking Volunteer Shifts

A volunteer form is attached for you to use to receive credit for your volunteer service and request the return of your volunteer deposit (it is also available at the SMLL Website in the 2018 Parent In Season Packet). When you have completed a volunteer shift, a SMLL board must certify your service. Several board members are at SMLL Park each evening. A list of board members can be found on our website.

Once you have complete three volunteer shifts, mail your form to SMLL, Attn: Treasurer, PO Box 11, South Milwaukee 53172 or email it to southmilwaukeelittleleague@gmail.com. If you choose to mail your form, be sure to retain a copy for your records.

Upon completion of the hours requirements the volunteer deposits will be mailed to the address used during registration.

The time and effort that you as a community put forth create lasting memories for our children. Please remember that the required hours are the minimum that we request but there is no maximum.
