New Volunteer Duty Duty Policy Announced

Changes to the HBSL Parent Volunteer Duty Process


Dear Parents:

We have exciting news about a policy update that will affect all families for the upcoming 2019 Homewood Baseball and Softball season.

Families will no longer be assigned umpire or concession stand duties! After an audit of our past two seasons, more than 90 percent of families ‘buy out’ of their assignments. Given this compelling data, we will collect a refundable Volunteer Duty Deposit of $60 for each registered player. 

In order to help families plan for this change in fee structure, the $60 per player deposit can be made one of three ways:

·         Included with your online registration

·         Included in a payment plan

·         Paid at a later time, before games begin in April

The deposit will need to be received prior to your child receiving their uniform, or playing any games, which is why we are opening registration and payment plans several months in advance of the season, which begins on April 20, 2019.

If you would like to work volunteer duties and have your deposit refunded, that is still an option. We will have forms available for you to request either concession stand or umpire duties, and upon successful completion of 3 duties, your deposit will be refunded to you.

Because parents will no longer be assigned umpire or concession stand duties, there will be no reminders sent, and you will not have to worry about getting your buyout envelope to the park in time for your child’s game. It will also significantly streamline the administration process for our volunteers.

Thank you so much for your feedback and information that helped us to craft this new procedure. We are confident it will make the entire baseball and softball experience more rewarding for players and parents alike.

If you have any questions at all, please feel free to reach out to us at [email protected].

Thank You!

HBSL Board of Directors
