Countryside Little League

Est. 1982 - Clearwater, Florida

It's a team effort

Countryside Little League is successful because the community supports our players and our purpose. 

All involved with Countryside Little League, from the Board of Directors to the coaches, are volunteers, giving their time and talent to ensure our players have the best possible experience in their young baseball and softball careers. We rely heavily on our volunteers, and we welcome additional volunteers all year long.

High School students are welcome to volunteer at the league to earn their volunteer hours for Bright Futures.

Coaching & Team Related Volunteers


We expect that our managers and coaches will help players improve their baseball and softball skills. It is also our responsibility to ensure that the players (and their parents) view their managers and coaches as models of integrity and good sportsmanship.

Your commitment to modeling and promoting these qualities will ensure that the culture at Countryside Little League builds strong character in our children.

Each season, CSLL families are asked to complete a survey about their experience with various aspects of our league. Some of the survey is directly related to their experience with the team manager. Below are the content areas that are rated at the end of the season, and therefore indicate the attributes we are seeking for managers in our league.

  • Provide quality instruction in development of baseball + softball skills
  • Maintain effective communication with players and parents
  • Model sportsmanship among players, coaches, and umpires
  • Promote competitiveness and fair play
  • Provide a healthy and positive environment for players
  • Serve as a positive role model to the players
  • Encourage participation for all players



Specific duties of the Manager include: assessing players, drafting a team, selecting official coaches, setting practice schedules, and conducting practices. Managers must understand and ensure that the team adheres to Little League and Local Rules (i.e., pitch counts, modified rules for division). Managers take a lead role in communicating with parents and league officials. Given the number of responsibilities it takes to run a team effectively, managers select and assign parents to assist the team (i.e., Team Rep, Score Keeper, Pitch Counter, and other roles deemed necessary). 


Working collaboratively with the Manager and helping to follow league and team rules for the players and parents.


As the Team Representative you play a very important role in how your team operates.  You are the Manager's support system to help ensure your team has the best and smoothest possible season.  Communication and organization are key to a successful season. 
The league will host at least one mandatory Team Rep Meeting each season. Things you'll be helping with are:

Countryside Krewe


It takes many volunteers to run this program successfully. We need and want your support!

Running a League takes a lot of hard work and commitment from people just like you. We are always in need of volunteers to help with managing and coaching teams.

However, there are many other, different, opportunities in which you can help. With the many events that come along throughout the season, an extra helping hand is always welcome. That's where you come in!

Please join the Countryside Krewe to get involved and help our league stay strong.

Volunteers are needed for:

Skills Evaluation Event (Baseball + Softball)
Opening Day (planning, working the event, etc.)
Flipping burgers
Movie Night 
Community Day (planning, organizing behind the scenes, set-up, etc.)
Fundraising Events
Acquiring donations for fundraising 
Social Media
Softball Program Expansion 
Procuring supplies for events (eligible for reimbursement)

We envision this group of people being on an email list- and when opportunities come up, we shoot you a message about what's needed, and you can sign up to help based on your availability. 

You can sign up for this role when you register your player, or at a later time.  Volunteers for this role will undergo the background check process to be eligible to help out on fields and around players.
