Sprague Little League

Make a Difference...


Sprague Little League is a non-profit organization that relies on the support from each family to help us thrive and run smoothly. We are entirely volunteer driven and operated by a volunteer board; parents and community members just like you, who want our children to find a passion for a healthy, character building and FUN sport!

In order to keep our registration fees low and offer the opportunity for children in our community to play baseball, each family in Sprague Little League will be required to volunteer two (2) hours per child with a maximum of four (4) hours per family. It is a common practice for Little Leagues to require volunteer hours and has been our standard practice in years past. We will not be implementing a volunteer deposit at this time, but we will ask families to record their hours using our downloadable form for tracking/verifying volunteer hours. Click HERE to download the 2024 Service Record Form and be sure to submit via email before July 1, 2024 to avoid a possible Non-Volunteer Fee.

Volunteer opportunities include but are not limited to: Board service, Picture Day Coordinator, Lower Division Scheduler, Social Media Photographer, Opening Day Parade Coordinator, Field Prep, and Concession Stand Helper. No experience is necessary, and training will be provided for all positions. Please find a volunteer role that interests you the most and one you can commit to and raise your hand. While you’ll find your volunteer work extremely worthwhile and gratifying, it is the Little Leaguers who will benefit the most.

NOTE: See HERE for information regarding MANDATORY ABUSE AWARENESS TRAINING for all volunteers. It is recommended to take the FREE online training course to earn your Certification of Completion BEFORE registering as a volunteer. This way you will have your PDF file (Certificate) downloaded and available to upload as part of the Volunteer Application process.

Kids can’t play without Coaches. Fields can’t be used without Field Maintenance. Dugouts can’t stay organized without a Team Parent. We have numerous volunteer opportunities and are always looking for devoted individuals to help coordinate events and activities. Whatever talents or skills you have, we can use them!

If you passed up the volunteer portion “Team Staff” during registration, you can return to your account page at any time and click "Volunteer Opportunities" to sign up. Please consider helping to provide these children with the best Little League experience possible. Every accomplishment begins with a decision to STEP UP TO THE PLATE!

Volunteers Should Know...


Little League® International has long been committed to the safety of its players, families, and volunteers, both on and off the field. To that end, all Leagues and Districts in the United States are required to conduct an annual background check, including a nationwide criminal search, a search of the National Sex Offender Registry, review of the U.S. Center for SafeSport Centralized Disciplinary Database and Little League International Ineligible List for each volunteer with regular service to the league and/or has repetitive access to or contact with players and teams.

Little League® International preferred provider, J.D. Palatine (JDP), has access to more than 600 million records, including criminal and sex offender registry records covering 50 states and the District of Columbia, as well as the review of the U.S. Center for SafeSport Centralized Disciplinary Database and Little League International Ineligible List, meeting the current Little League Regulation 1(c) 8 & 9 requirement. 

This is an online only procedure with a secure site that eliminates the need for completing, turning in and storing paper forms and private information. Volunteer candidates simply provide their full name and email address along with uploading a government issued photo ID into their Sports Connect account. This will allow a board representative to upload this information into the JDP system. The candidate will then receive an email link with instructions to complete the background check. Once complete, the board officer receives approval (or denial) notification, and the volunteer is ready to go. The reports available to the board officer only show volunteer name, date ordered, and date completed. All social security or other private information is unavailable to the local board.

If you would like additional information regarding this requirement, please click HERE to visit Little League® International.

Sports Connect will allow you to upload a PDF, but this is not viewable by League Officials in PDF format due to the SC system being unable to open for viewing. Thank you!
