Please consider adding your player to your divisions player pool. Here is how to do it:

To assist teams that are having a difficult time getting enough players for their regular season teams during the season, Chaires Little League has opted to create a division player pool, consisting of players who have volunteered to be in the pool.

  1. The player agent will create and run the pool. He will use the pool to assign players within the minors division to teams that are short of players on a rotating basis. Once the volunteer list has been compiled, the player agent will randomly arrange the players in the pool. This order will not be known by any minors division coach.

  3. Managers and/or coaches will not have the right to randomly pick and choose players from the pool. Managers will not know who their pool players will be until after they have requested one from the player agent. Once a request has been made, it cannot be rescinded.
  4. When a player participates on a team other than his/her own team, such player will not be permitted to pitch or catch in that game. They will be placed at the end of the batting order. Pool players that are called and show up at the game site must play at least nine consecutive defensive outs and bat once. They will wear their own team uniform.

Once a player has been selected by the player agent as a pool player, he/she will be placed at the back of the pool list and will not be selected for another game until their turn comes up again. A parent will always have the ability to refuse or ignore an invitation but, to preserve the integrity of the process, that refusal will result in the player being put in the back of the list as if they did accept.

To make this process run smoothly, parent/guardians of willing volunteers will need to send an email your player agent with a subject of Player Pool Volunteer. Please include in the email the player's team, name, and a number to contact the parent/guardian via text message.

Coaches wishing to request a player should contact your player agent via text as soon as they are aware of the need. Please include your team name and game date with the message. It is preferred that you give him at least two days notice but he will likely be able to find a player for you within one day. In extreme cases, he will attempt to find players on the day of the game but due to work/family commitments and dependency on parent responses, he may not be able to fill your request.

Again, please let him know as soon as you can.

Parents will be informed of a player request via text message. If a parent does not respond within a reasonable time (which will depend on the urgency of the request), the player agent will contact the parent of the next player on the list and inform the first parent the offer is no longer in place. The originally contacted player will then be placed at the back of the selection list.

Immediately after a player has accepted an invitation to play, the player agent will contact the requesting coach.
