Parent Participation

Because of strong parent participation, the Pleasant Hill Hawks is one of the most affordable “travel ball” teams in the area. Hawks parents do not pay for coaching because the managers and coaches donate their time. 

Parents are expected to volunteer their time for the team and the greater PHBA league. Hawks parents generally volunteer much more than the four hours mandated by PHBA for responsibilities that include snack shack sales, field prep and cleanup, and scorekeeping.
