North Kitsap Little League is an all-volunteer organization that serves over 800 children in our community. Managing, organizing, and planning for the Baseball, Softball, and T-Ball programs is a year-round activity. A small group of parents and civic-minded individuals give us their time through-out the year to keep the leagues running. During the season, these dedicated individuals can not accomplish all that needs to be done without your help.
To provide your child with a quality experience in Little League, a large number of additional volunteers is always needed. Volunteering can be as simple as bringing snacks and refreshments to a game, or as involved as helping coach, umpire, or manage a game. Big or small, there's always something that you can do that will be greatly appreciated by someone.
Please be generous with your time. Remember...it's about the kids!

The safety and well-being of all participants in the Little League program is paramount. As adults, we want to ensure that the young people playing in the Little League program are able to grow up happy, healthy and, above all, safe. Whether they are our children, or the children of others, each of us has a responsibility to protect them.
In 1998, Little League International launched its Child Protection Program to educate local league volunteers, with the goal of creating local league programs where only those who have the best interests of children in mind are involved. Little League’s Child Protection Program was updated in 2018 to reflect the mandates set forth by the “Protecting Young Victims from Sexual Abuse and Safe Sport Act of 2017,” which requires that all amateur sports organizations, which participate in an interstate or international amateur athletic competition and whose membership includes any adult who is in regular contact with an amateur athlete who is a minor, must report suspected child abuse, including sexual abuse, within 24 hours to law enforcement.
