Volunteers are important for all non-profit organizations, FHA is no different. Without volunteer coaches, umpires and parents our programs would be very difficult to organize and manage. Thank you for your dedication and the many hours that you all donate to our great sport. If you are interested in joining our ranks as an umpire, please see the information below.
