Volunteer Points Policy
Effective date: March, 2023
NWLL recognizes that without its many volunteers, our baseball league would not exist. The contributions of our volunteers are immeasurable. As a parent volunteer group, we have a profound effect on the young athletes' experience in our organization. Due to the lack of volunteers in key and team positions, a volunteer policy has been implemented by the NWLL executive.
A $200 volunteer deposit cheque will be required from each NWLL family for each player registered in the league. The deposit cheque will be cashed at the end of the season (approximately June 30) if the family does not obtain a minimum 300 points per registered player towards volunteer work as authorized by NWLL. If you cannot volunteer in any capacity, you can indicate so when you provide your volunteer cheque and have it cashed promptly.
NWLL will collect all deposit cheques when uniforms are picked up at the start of the season. If deposit cheques are not provided, your child's uniform will not be issued.
Team coaches will select a team Off Field Manager whose responsibility will be to track volunteer hours and schedule volunteers at the team level. The Manager will inform the board of parents not meeting the volunteer requirements. The Board of Directors will make the final decision on whether deposit cheques are cashed.
NWLL Executive positions are voted on at the league's AGM. Persons interested in Executive positions should spend at least one year shadowing the position they are interested in and be prepared to commit a minimum of one 2-year term to the Board.
Below is a chart listing volunteer requirements, volunteer positions, points earned for each volunteer position and credits toward player fees for volunteers.
Each registered baseball player requires a minimum of 300 volunteer points per season on their behalf.
In February 2023, the board implemented a new points system for families with multiple children in the league. NWLL recognizes that families with multiple children sometime struggle to achieve 300 points per player. As such, the NWLL board of directors will recognize the following sliding scale of points: 1st child: 300 points, 2nd child: 200 points, 3rd child and subsequent child: 100 points. This applies to each season that a family may have multiple children playing with NWLL.
