Volunteering can be broken down into two categories: League and Team. The first directly benefits all and is normally for a specific length of time. The second benefits the team and should be shared by the team families to ease the burden on the manager/coach.
These positions have been developed for several reasons: First, to help Managers realize that they can share their burden by delegating many duties; Second, to explain the duties in a clear manner.
