Volunteers are what make a youth sports program go round.
One of the most frequently asked questions we receive from parents is "Why do I need to pay a $75 volunteer fee?". We want to offer a clear explanation as to why our association has chosen to implement the fee.
Each season our program services around 120 kids across 12 teams and our volunteer board currently consists of 4 people, as we have open board spots. To maintain the program and keep it running like it has for the past 33 years, we need parents to volunteer a few hours each season in the different roles we have available. In recent years we have noticed that parental involvement has been on the decline even though the program still needs the support of the parents to be successful. By having the REFUNDABLE fee in place, parents now have a vested interest in helping to support the association through volunteering. If we do collect the fee at the end of the season, those funds are then used to offset the cost of the lost volunteer hours. We ultimately want to refund each volunteer fee at the end of the season because for us to pay for outside help will cost double that of the volunteer fee. We understand that all of our lives have become busier over the years and the Sandwich T-Ball Board is more than willing to be creative with volunteer opportunities. All we need is for you to reach out to us.
