Volunteer Information

We are thrilled to have you and your athlete with New West Minor Baseball. Our ball association is a parent participation organization and relies on families volunteering and contributing all through the season. We couldn’t do it without parent volunteers!

Each season, we ask parents to complete 6 hours of volunteer work at the LEAGUE level. These are opportunities such as:

  • Serving on the Board. (Please see the Contact Us page for current vacancies)
  • Being a Coach or Assistant Coach.
  • Being a Team Manager.
  • Helping at events such as Diamondside Days, tournaments (there will be a sign up for these tasks.)
  • Occasional work at Queens Park Stadium or Justin Morneau Field.

You have the option of paying the volunteer buyout fee and can elect this option at any time during the season. Just let our Volunteer Coordinator know!

At the TEAM level, every family is expected to contribute to the success of the team during games throughout the season. This is applicable even when you have paid the volunteer buyout fee. Every team counts on their parents to help. Game tasks include:

  • Scorekeeping
  • Pitch Counting
  • Operating the Scoreboard
  • Field Prep & clean up

Helping out with game tasks, particularly field prep, will allow coaches to concentrate on coaching before and after games. Please come out, meet the other parents, pitch in and contribute to a fulfilling ball season.

Parents/Guardians are responsible providing to the team manager of their player’s team a league volunteer deposit cheque (one per family) in the amount of $250.00, post-dated to July 1 of the current year, and made payable to “New West Minor Baseball.” This cheque will be returned once my family’s league volunteer commitment has been fulfilled by the end of the season. OR they may choose to pay the League Volunteer Buy Out fee as part of their player’s registration.
