Snack Bar Policy
Teams’ snack bar shifts are now during their games in which they are a visitor.
For all games at Nelson Park, the visiting team must provide a responsible volunteer at least 16 years of age to assist in the Snack Bar 20 MINUTES PRIOR TO YOUR GAME, for the duration of your game, and 15 minutes after the game to change shifts, or to clean up and close. Games cannot begin until the visiting team’s volunteer has reported to the snack bar. If a visiting team fails to send a volunteer to the Snack Bar for the shift and to stay to clean up and close the snack bar properly, the game will be considered a forfeit.
NO dogs allowed!!
Please take notice! Dogs are not allowed at any Bobby Sox function. That includes all practices and games in all fields. The only exception is for service dogs. Mixing dogs with little kids is just asking for trouble and if we can avoid kids being bitten we can keep our insurance & player costs low. Board members will be enforcing this policy this year. We don't want parents to miss their kids’ games and we don't want dogs locked in cars in the parking lot either. Thank you for your support.
