    Field Access ID Badges

    Stilly Valley Little League requires ID Badges for all Managers, Coaches, Board of Directors, Umpires and any other persons, volunteers or hired workers who provide regular service to the league and/or have repetitive access to, or contact with players or teams.  Individuals will be issued a new badge annually after they have been cleared by a background check.

    Individuals must wear their ID Badges during all SVLL games, practices and events in which they are volunteering. Individuals must present and/or surrender it to the SVLL board of directors upon request.

    In the event that the SVLL volunteer forgets his/her badge they will NOT be allowed on the field or around the SVLL players. There are no exceptions. It is the manager's responsibility to make sure that all team volunteers wear their league issued ID badge prior to coming in contact with the players and failure to do so may result in disciplinary action of the manager.

    In the event that an individual is on the field or in the dugout with the players and does not have the league issued ID badge it will result in, but not be limited to, the requirement of the individual to exit the field of play, and may be subject to further disciplinary action. ID Badges are the property of SVLL and may not be duplicated.

     

     
    Our Policy

    The safety of our players is the highest priority for Stilly Valley Little League. By issuing ID Badges all league officials, parents and their families may more readily identify those adults who have met the requirements for volunteering as set by Little League International and Stilly Valley Little League.

    SVLL volunteers on the field or in the dug out must wear their ID badges to insure they have been cleared in our child protection program.  NO ONE will be allowed on the fields in any capacity without their badge on.  If you see a parent or volunteer on any field without proper badge identification please report to a board member.  This program ensures your children are kept safe!

     
    SVLL Volunteer Participation Program

    Stilly Valley Little League (SVLL) has created a formal Volunteer Participation Program to encourage volunteerism within the league.
    During the scheduled baseball & softball season, parents are required to fulfill 6 volunteer hours per family playing in Stilly Valley Little League.
    For those who think they simply do not have the time to volunteer, a $50 “buy out” fee option is available (in addition to player registration fees). When Volunteer registering online, the volunteer must sign up for preferred activities or pay for the “buy out” to be completed during player registration.
    The reason is simple, we need your help!
    SVLL is a non-profit organization that exists and operates by the cooperative efforts of many volunteers; from its Board of Directors to its managers, coaches, umpires, team parents and a large body of other supporting volunteers.
    This network of volunteers requires continuous growth with a common purpose and goal: to provide a positive baseball and softball learning experience for all SVLL players.
    The Volunteer Participation Program allows SVLL to maintain reasonable registration fees by providing parents the opportunity to volunteer within their community. We know that this will be a fun and easy way to contribute to a quality baseball and softball experience for all.
    Simply put, the more involved you are, the more fun both you and your child will have!

    All Parent Volunteers who did not 'opt out', please register as '2017 Spring Season Volunteers' so you can be scheduled to assist your assigned teams or League functions(Jamboree etc)
