Mark Huffman

I have been involved with Little League baseball for over 30 years now. I coached both baseball and softball teams over the years. I was involved with a few leagues over that time, but I have been involved with VSLL since 2009. I have been on the VSLL board since 2011.

Over the years I have had many hats on the board, from security to uniforms to baseball operations to equipment orders. In that time, I have worked with 7 different presidents and been involved with many different accomplishments - from 2 new batting cages being built in Viera, to getting the Mercedes field in Suntree converted to a 50/70 field, and a batting fence cage going up in Viera around 2 batting lanes.

Over the past 30+ years I have been involved with Little League a lot. The first 6 or so years I did not have a child involved with me, but I enjoy teaching kids the game of baseball (and softball while my daughter was playing). I enjoy seeing the kids develop over time as they enhance their skills to become better ball players, and hopefully, to grow and learn to love the game as I have and to have fun, win or lose.

 I am passionate about helping our league grow and hope to be a part of this year’s board.

Robert DeVore

Since 2018, I have been volunteering and coaching at VSLL, as I followed my son through T-Ball, Machine pitch and Double AA. I am a self-proclaimed baseball junkie and passionate about teaching the game and creating lasting memories for our youth.

Chris Williams

I have coached several seasons of different types of sports:

-One season of soccer for Brandon Youth Soccer League in Brandon, Mississippi
-One season of soccer for Suntree Soccer Club in Melbourne, Florida
-One season of T-ball / Coach Pitch for i9 Sports in Viera, Florida
-Two seasons of flag football for Suntree Viera Youth Football League in Viera, Florida
-Two seasons of T-ball for Viera Suntree Little League
-Two seasons of Single A for Viera Suntree Little League
-Two seasons of Double A for Viera Suntree Little League

I feel the most rewarding parts of coaching is helping the kids reach their potential, seeing them make friends, becoming a “team,” and seeing them apply what the coaches teach on the field.  I am known for my calm demeanor, level headedness, and even temper.

Christie Maldonado

I have decided to volunteer this year as part of a board member for VSLL. As a family we have been part of the league for 3 years. I enjoy volunteer work, assisting our community, families, and friends. I hope to be able to continue this fun tradition for another year. Thank you!

Lindsey Wilson

This is my first year being involved with Viera Suntree Little League. We are a Coast Guard family that recently moved from the West coast of Florida, with Brevard county being our final stomping grounds before military retirement! I have been involved with my son who started in tee ball in the Tampa Bay Area and I am looking forward to ensuring the kids in his new league have a great time and make forever memories! I will always support the children in our community and look forward to using my time to make this league the best it can be!

Matt Skrmetta

I live in Suntree, and my son Matthew is 9 years old and plays in the league.

I played 15 years professionally with 9 different MLB organizations.

I also played two years in Japan .

I am currently scouting AAA and MLB games, which I have done for the last 13 years.

I have studied the Japanese and American approaches to the game. I love to help the kids get better, but most of all, help them learn to love the game.
