Volunteers

2017 Volunteer Policy

The 2017 volunteer policy is for each family to work 2 hours, or, pay the Buyout Fee. This requirement is for both single player families and multi-player families and must be satisfied by the end of the current season and before registration in future PWYBA activities.

All travel/tournament team families are required to volunteer at each of the Wayzata tournaments hosted by their travel players’ teams.  This volunteer requirement is in addition to completing the 2 hour volunteer requirement (or paying the Buyout Fee).

The Buyout Fee is $50 if paid at the time of registration -- $75 if paid during the remainder of the season. Please mail a check payable to PWYBA to: PWYBA, PO Box 47244, Plymouth, MN 55447

Volunteer opportunities are posted on the website and updated throughout the season. Credit for hours worked will automatically be issued soon after the volunteer work is completed.   

You cannot cancel a volunteer opportunity you signed up for within 24 hours of the opportunity. You will need to find someone to replace you and then e-mail the Volunteer Coordinator to confirm. 

The following positions will fulfill required volunteer hours:

  • Head Coach
  • Assistant Coaches (Up to three for House 3rd-12th and Travel teams; up to 4 for House K-2nd teams)
  • Team Managers for Travel Teams
  • Tournament Directors
  • Event Coordinators
  • Event Volunteers
  • Team Sponsors

Examples of events and activities that will require Volunteer Coordinators and volunteers for the summer season include:

  • Opening Day Ceremony
  • Pre-season Evaluations
  • Picture Day
  • Sponsorship Drive
  • Concession Stands (Greenwood and Elm Creek)
  • Tournaments
  • Apparel Sales
  • All Star Day
  • Field Improvements (labor) 

Volunteers for concessions must be at least 14 years old.  This includes students who want to volunteer with their parents.  No child under the age of 14 will be allowed in the concessions stands at Greenwood, Elm Creek or Parker's Lake.  We thank you for your understanding and hope you will help the student stand managers enforce this policy.

Thank you for volunteering for PWYBA! Our program's continued success is dependent on the contribution of volunteers. The hours you volunteer help ensure an excellent experience for your child, and keep our fees as low as possible
