In a lot of places there isn’t a sufficient infrastructure in place to solicit then vet potential volunteers who don’t have kids participating in the league. Almost every coach I’ve had in every sport until high school was someone’s dad who volunteered. The exceptions were younger parents who lived near my school and knew they’d be sending their kids there when they were old enough so they volunteered early to get some experience before their own kids came through.
