Opportunities with Arlington Little League & Best Buddies

These events have been shared with CVN and we wanted to pass them along in case you're interested. In both cases, please follow up with the contact person for the group directly if you'd like to get involved.

Arlington Little League Seeks Coaches 

Our AAA division, 9-10 year olds is in need of coaches.  The AAA level is the first where players pitch to each other for the entire season--at lower levels coaches pitch or, for 8 year olds, the teams transition from coach to player pitching.  Arlington Little League is a non-profit, community, youth baseball league serving Arlington County.  Our coaches are generally a mix of young men and women in the 20's and 30's volunteering their time and parents.  We sincerely appreciate non-parent coaches who are willing to step in and give us a hand as it sets a very positive model for our players.  Generally speaking there are several practices/games during the week starting at 5:30 p.m. or later and one on the weekend.  The County's facilities scheduling may modify that schedule.  With rainouts, the number may increase as the season progresses.  Baseball experience is helpful but not required.  For those interested, please email

Dance with Yorktown High School's Best Buddies Chapter (3/10)

Best Buddies is a program promoting the acceptance and inclusion of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The Best Buddies chapter at Yorktown High School is hosting a community wide square dance on Saturday, March 10th from 5-7:30 in the Yorktown cafeteria. There will be a live caller, and all are welcome. We are anticipating students from 8 different schools to attend, in addition to parents, teachers, and other community leaders! This community event is the culmination of our disability awareness outreach program, which gives disability awareness presentations to groups within the Arlington community. We would be honored to have any of your volunteers come dance with us! Please don't hesitate to contact Kelly Willner, chapter President, with any questions.
