Volunteer Opportunities

Our league is volunteer-run, which means that almost all efforts in organization, preparation and execution come from contributions from the members of our community. We are always on the lookout for more volunteer help. Parents and interested parties can serve as team managers, coaches, assistants and board members. As our league grows, the need for new volunteers grows with it.

Volunteering is a rewarding experience. We find that the majority of our volunteers are parents of girls playing in our league, but we’ve been fortunate enough to have had participation from other parts of the community.

Listed below are descriptions of positions within the league organization from which your time and energy would be most appreciated. If you have any questions regarding these descriptions, or if you can contribute in a way to the league that is not listed here, please contact the league at info@ogsl.org and let us know how you can help!
