COMMITTEES

As a community based organization, we rely on our families to keep our program not only relevant, but one of the best around.  We have several committees below that you can sign up for or chair.  Our committee chairs are full board members responsible for attending board meetings and leading their respective committee. Our committee members are there to assist the board chair in fulfilling the committee mission and responsibilities. These are a great way to meet parents/families of other teams across the organization and build a great softball/volleyball network.  You can see high level information below on each committee by clicking through the tabs.  We hope you find one or two that match your interests and compel you to sign up.   You can also see who our current chairs are by scrolling further down.  The investment in your time is minimal compared to as much as you get out of it.  Click the button to express interest or find out more.  Or, you can email the chairs directly under their profile.
