Aldergrove Minor Baseball is a volunteer-run Association and, therefore, requires all families to help in order to keep the
registration fees down. Baseball is a team sport that promotes skill & leadership development, friendships and life skills all while
getting outdoors and getting some exercise. We want to make sure that ALL children have the opportunity to play the wonderful
game regardless of their financial situation. Without volunteers, we would need to hire out these jobs at a cost. Thanks to all of
you for your continued support.
Each family is required to complete four (4) hours of volunteer work from the Rally-Cap to the Midget divisions. At registration,
each family is required to provide us with a $250.00 volunteer deposit cheque.
If a family is not able to volunteer at all, they will have chosen the volunteer opt-out package at the time of registration and will
have paid their $250.00 volunteer opt-out at that time.
Should a family decide partway through the season that they will not be able to volunteer, then an email must be sent to the
AMBA Registrar and request that their Volunteer Deposit cheque be cashed.
Otherwise, if volunteer hours are not complete; cheques will be cashed on or before July 1st.
Parents need to keep track of their hours on the Parent Volunteer Summary Form. The master copy of this form is given to each manager. Please inform your team manager when you have completed your hours. They will record it on the master copy that must be submitted at the end of the season.
Volunteer support from parents/guardians/family members is vital to Aldergrove Minor Baseball’s success. Without
volunteers, the Association would not exist.
