Mandatory Volunteer Service Requirements and Fee

Milpitas National Little League, as required by Little League International, is an all-volunteer, not for profit organization. As such, we rely on volunteers to ensure that the program runs smoothly and that costs can remain low for families wishing to participate. To ensure that everyone contributes to the volunteer hours necessary to run the league the following volunteer program is mandatory. Each family will be responsible for fulfilling hours of volunteer service or to pay a $60 per family Volunteer Buyout fee. A $60 Volunteer Deposit will be collected at the time of registration. This deposit will be refunded at the completion of the season and on verification that all volunteer hours have been 100% complete.

All players are required to pay the Volunteer Deposit. A Volunteer Deposit Refund is not automatic, a Volunteer Deposit Refund form must be submitted and reviewed by a board member. A credit will be manually applied to your account after the form is approved. Please plan ahead to allow adequate time for the processing of the form.

Please note, there will be no partial credit given for incomplete hours.

Additional Information:
1. The volunteer hours or buyout fees are per family.
2. To receive credit for your snack bar duty, you must be there for the entire two hour snack shack shift. If you come late or leave early, you will receive no credit for that shift. Please ensure you have another volunteer to represent your player there to cover any time you cannot be there in order to receive full credit for your shift. One shift is equal to $20 credit towards your deposit.
3. The designated volunteer for your player can be a volunteer who has completed the background check. Any excessive distractions such as cell phone use or visitors will be grounds for dismissal from the shift and you will not receive credit for that shift.
4. Plan ahead and have anyone you may need to help you with volunteer hours do their volunteer application early. It can take up to two weeks to have background checks complete.
5. In addition to a snack bar shift, each team manager will be given the option to have no more than 2 Team Volunteers. These volunteers will be chosen by the team manager, they may be coaches, scorekeepers or field prep volunteers and must be reported to the Information Officer prior to Opening Day and to be officially rostered on the team and have their background check verified. Field Prep Volunteers must arrive 30 minutes prior to the start of every home game to set up the field. Failure to show up on time for all of the team's home games will result in the volunteer hours not being met. Team Scorekeepers must be at every game early enough to set up the scorebook in prep for the game to start on time. The team manager is the only person who can grant team volunteer hours.
