Team Roles

The BMHA is a volunteer based organization. All of our Coaches, Managers, and other Team Officials; as well as members of the BMHA Board of Directors are dedicated volunteers.

Each team requires 6 to 8 volunteers. There are many interesting roles available each season. The Rules, Duties & Regulations document outlines all of the job descriptions for volunteer positions.
