Fort Hunt Softball is run entirely by volunteers and you are vital to our program. This season, we are hoping to have an even more robust program than in the past and the key is you! Please take a look at the volunteer opportunities below, as you will be asked where you would like to help, during the registration process. Some of these duties are only one day for a few hours and others are ongoing throughout the season. Many hands make light work!
Field maintenance is required before and after each game. Coaches should be focused on getting their team ready to play the game, and therefore, we will need parents to rake and line the field. Your team's manager will create a schedule so that you only have to preform field duties once or twice per season. Click here for instructions on How to Line a Field.
