The San Francisco Youth Baseball League (SFYBL) is run by a board of mostly volunteers. As our league continues to grow, we’re seeking additional volunteers to assist with committees.  The duties of the board include but are not limited to:

  • Deciding on league structure, growth

  • Endorsing and maintaining league's mission

  • Creating league rules and policies

  • Setting league budgets

  • Reviewing game schedules

  • Managing and attending league events such as registration, games, coach training sessions, umpire training, player clinics, equipment distribution,  All Star tryouts, Tournament, Player Recognition Games, etc.

  • Attending weekly (Friday 9:30am-11am) board meeting during the season and every 2-3 weeks in the off-season.

  • Managing a division(s) for a league consisting of over 700 coaches and over 2,800 kids playing on over 225 teams in five age-based divisions.

  • Communicating with coaches, players, and parents/guardians as well as answering questions from them in a timely and authoritative manner. These communications happen largely via email and our web site, but also include phone and in-person dialogue.

If you are an adult interested in helping to provide the youth of San Francisco the best possible youth baseball league experience…we want you. We are looking for candidates to fill many roles, in particular are:

  • Webmaster
