RAYB operates through the work of volunteers. Baseball opportunities for the youth in the Roseville community would not be possible without volunteer work. RAYB, like most youth sport organizations, requires that families of all players provide volunteer (unpaid) work to help run our organization.
Who is covered by this policy?
All players in the following RAYB leagues:
- C, B, and A Recreation Leagues
- 9U-14U Travel teams
What is the requirement?
Each household will be required to participate in 2 shifts of approved RAYB volunteer activities per child on a team in one of the covered leagues listed above. There will be a maximum of 4 shifts per family. If a household does not want to, or is unwilling to participate in the volunteer activities, they may pay a fee of $150 per child at the time of registration, maximum of $300 per family. If the volunteer shifts are not completed by August 31st, families will automatically be charged $250 per child fee to the credit card on file.
How will the volunteer requirement be tracked?
Tracking of volunteer shifts for those families that do not pay the opt-out fee will be done within the Volunteer section of your Account in Crossbar. At the end of the season, the volunteer coordinator will determine which households did not fulfill the volunteer requirement and send those names to the registration director. Any household that didn’t meet the requirement will be assessed the applicable fee at the end of the current season. Prior year fees must be paid before families are able to register their children for the following season.
What are typical volunteer opportunities?
Generally, volunteer opportunities will fall under two categories: team functions or league functions.
- Coaching: One head coach and two assistants per team
- Team manager
- Concession stand
- Board or committee positions
- In-person registration day/apparel sales
- Field clean-up day
