Volunteer Points Policy

Effective date: March 4, 2019

NWLL recognizes that without its many volunteers, the baseball league would not exist.  The contributions of our volunteers are immeasurable.  As a parent volunteer group, we have a profound effect on the experience of the young athletes 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 at least 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 it will be to track volunteer hours for scorekeeping, pitch count and diamond preparation.  The Coach and Manager will also keep track of parents that helped at practices and games.  The Manager will inform their Division Coordinator 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.  Anyone in good standing with NWLL that is interested in building our league for the future can express interest to the Secretary. Persons interested in Executive positions should spend at least one year shadowing the position they are interested in and be prepared to commit multiple years 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.
