As you may know, Moreland Little League is a 100% volunteer-run operation. It takes a team effort on part of both players and families alike to create a season full of fun life-long memories. Board Members, League Officers, Managers and Coaches volunteer countless hours before, during and after the season to ensure that league runs successfully.
We can't do it alone, however. It takes the effort of our entire adult membership to provide our children with the type of Little League experience they deserve!
To that end, one of league's major fundraisers is the snack shack. Each player must have 1 parent/guardian serve a snack shack shift during the season. You may be thinking, "not the snack shack!!!" Believe it or not most parents find the snack shack is a fun way to meet and bond with other parents and interact with kids in the league as they come to get their refreshments after the game. If for some reason you can not work a shift in the snack shack a buy out option is available during registration.
In addition to the snack shack we ask that parents/guardians volunteer in areas that help the league over all.
