VOLUNTEER INFORMATION (Archived policy - no longer applicable)

Go to the Volunteer Opportunities tab, login with your email and password on the CAA Baseball & Softball website. Once you click sign up a little pop up window will confirm you have signed up. You should also receive a confirmation email. If you need remove yourself from the spot, you can log back in and click to unassign yourself. You will only have to click one time and you will be unassigned.

If a husband/ wife want to sign up together on a shift, you will need to create two accounts and login with two different emails.

If you have 7 hours and just need 1 more hour to complete your volunteer hours, you have to take the shifts as published to complete your volunteer hours.  CAA does not guarantee time slots will match incomplete hours exactly.  You are required to volunteer the ENTIRE shift as registered.

If the weather forces games to be canceled, you will receive credit for the hours you did work. If your shift is entirely canceled we will not give you credit for the hours you signed up.


If an event/ date no longer appears on the page that means all the spots have been filled. If you don't see anything on the volunteer opportunities page that means all current volunteer spots are filled and no new spots have been posted.
Thank you,  Director of Volunteers

The Coach,and Asst coaches will need to register on the CAA website so we can do the appropriate background checks. 

Teams will not have a Team Volunteer Coordinator this year.  This position was eliminated and rolled into a Volunteer Committee.  A member of this committee will be reaching out each Coach via email to communicate activities that are going on.  They will also be collecting the volunteer roster so we can correctly assign volunteer hours to families.
The Volunteer Committee will be communicating to the families of all children involved in CAA SB & BB via the CAA website.

Volunteer Policy

Volunteers are greatly needed to make our Baseball/Softball League run! Without volunteers contributing many hours, Chanhassen Baseball/Softball could simply not exist. We appreciate the work that everyone does to help make our children's baseball/softball experience a positive and enjoyable one and making the Chanhassen Baseball/Softball program successful! With this in mind we are entering the third year of our Volunteer Policy. We have made some revisions to hopefully improve the process for everyone involved. To ensure fairness in regards to the volunteer policy and deposit, please remember,
