CYBA Adopts Volunteer Opt-Out Policy
Beginning with the 2015 season, the Board of Directors has adopted a volunteer opt-out policy.
CYBA is a volunteer organization that needs the support of the community (especially parents) to operate and provide a great atmosphere for their kids to enjoy baseball. During the registration process, parents are asked if they would be willing to volunteer some of their time in support of CYBA. Adult volunteers are needed and expected to volunteer during the course of a season in any of the areas to include field clean up day, Snack Shack staffing, daily field maintenance, fundraising, or many other areas were we need your help and support. With the new policy structure, at time of registration an additional $50 fee per family will be assessed. This will remove families that do not wish to participate from the responsibility of volunteering their time.
For families that choose to volunteer their time in support of the league, by completing 3 hours of volunteer service, a refund of the fee will be processed by the league treasurer. Team managers will be provided a time sheet that will be completed for each family to record time volunteered. The full 3 hours must be completed to obtain the refund, as no partial reimbursements will be issued.
