Become a Temecula Youth Baseball (TYB) Board Member

What does the TYB Board do?

The TYB board is the decision making arm of our youth baseball program for Temecula and the surrounding communities.  It is through the board that programs are designed, planned for and operated. The board determines the costs necessary to run each of these programs and sets applicable fees to cover the costs. Without a board there would be no Temecula Youth Baseball.

What does a Board Member do?

The TYB board meets on a regular basis to review issues and concerns surrounding our programs. Participation by board members during these meetings helps us discuss and find the best solutions for our organization. Besides meetings, each board member will be assigned a task or area of concentration. You can find this season’s assignments on the Board Member page. These assignments are held by board members for the year (July 1-June 30). After the election of new members, new assignments will be given to all Board of Directors, if they desire a change.  You can see a list of current board positions above. We have several positions available.

How long is the term?

Each board member is elected to a 1 year term. Of course we encourage members to return for another term either in their current position or to in a new role.  There is plenty of work to be done.  It’s nice when the work can be delegated to many volunteers.

Who should volunteer to serve?

We are always looking for members who have an interest in youth baseball, possess organizational skills that can be leveraged in the operation of the program and have a passion for continued improvement of a youth program that strives to continue to be the top youth baseball program in the valley.

How do I apply to become a board member?

All you need to do is complete the board application using the form on this page. Your application will be reviewed and you will be contacted by a current executive board member.

New Friends?

Our board is made up of people from the local area that have a desire to become an active member of TYB.  With that being said, you will make many new friends that have that same desire.

Any other questions?

Feel free to contact us and we’ll try to answer your questions.  We look forward to hearing from you!
