Santana National Little League

Join the SNLL Board of Directors

Are you interested in becoming a Board Member?


All Board members in our League are Volunteers. We are always looking for new Board Members who want to make decisions that are in the best interest of SNLL.

Santana National Little League must maintain a strong Board of Directors. We are looking for Board Members that are interested in making decisions that further our Mission and for Board Members whose primary objective is for the positive benefit of the Santana National Little League organization as a whole.

Each year, new members are needed to replace the “aging out” Board Members (who take years of experience with them). We have an ongoing need to recruit new Board Members, particularly from the lower division levels, as parents from these divisions will be the future Leaders of SNLL.

Maintaining an adequate number of active Board members will allow each Board Member to fulfill 100% of their assigned duties and responsibilities. Doing so will prevent problems and mistakes that drain energy, time and resources from our mission of supplying our youth with a quality Little League experience.

What will your responsibilities be as an SNLL Board Member?
  1. To advance the Mission of Santana National Little League.
  2. As a representative of SNLL, be cognizant of how your actions and discussions with parents, players, umpires, coaches, other Little league representatives and the general public reflects upon the image of Santana National Little League.
  3. If you choose to volunteer for any of the below positions, perform the duties of that position (time varies).
  4. Attend approximately 10-12 Board Meetings per year (1 to 2 hours each).
No Experience Needed!
Technical knowledge of baseball is not necessary to join the Board. There are many Board positions that utilize other skills.

Please do not join if your reason(s) for joining the board are to:
  1. Gain voting privileges only (and not help run the league or maintain the premises).
  2. Use your Board position to improperly influence any league process that benefit only your team or only your child.
If you are interested in helping run the League, please email your name, address and phone number to [email protected] and indicate that you are interested in joining the Santana National Little League Board of Directors.
