Nose Creek Softball recognizes that the contribution of volunteers is
immeasurable and without volunteers, minor softball would not exist.
Collectively, we have a profound effect on the experience of over 300
young athletes every year. Due to the lack of volunteers, a policy has
been implemented starting with the 2012 season.
A $100.00 volunteer post-dated deposit cheque will be required from each
registered family*. Each family, regardless of how many children they have
registered in the program, is expected to contribute a minimum of 4* hours
within the season for which they are registered. The deposit will only be
processed if the family does not complete and report the minimum number of
volunteer hours by the cutoff date.
*Families with athletes in the Timbits and main program (U9 to U19) will need to
meet the volunteer criterion for their eldest child (U9 to U19 athlete).
NEW this year for U9-U19, all families will need to provide family member to volunteer
throughout the season a minimum of 6 hours. If a family does not complete the 6 volunteer
hours the family will be charged a $200.00 volunteer fee. All families (except
coaches and casino volunteers) will be required to help out with team responsibilities
(e.g., umpiring, scorekeeping, and preparing the field). In addition, it will be mandatory
for each family to volunteer during the Nose Creek Mother's Day Tournament. Each team
manager will determine if additional volunteer hours are required in order to have a
successful season for the players. A family will only be charged at the end of the season
if the family does not complete and report the minimum number of volunteer hours by
the cutoff date.
Families not obtaining their full volunteer credit will be notified that they will be charged
after August 15. It is the responsibility of each family to track and report their volunteer
time. Information on how to do so along with deadline dates to report volunteer time
will be communicated by the team manager.
