There is a great deal of organization and work that happens on off the field to make sure RBC operates successfully. As a 100% volunteer run organization, Ridge Baseball Club relies on volunteers and participating families to serve the needs of its players and operate efficiently. In order to encourage volunteer participation and to be equitable to all families, the league has implemented a Work Bond Program.
The amount of the Work Bond is $100 per family.
At time of player registration, each family will be required to pay the mandatoryWork Bond amount. Each family will be required to volunteer four (4) hours of service towards the operation of the RBC. In addition, each family is responsible for tracking and submitting the Ridge Baseball Club Work Bond Form by the deadline of November 15th.
Once the entire season is completed, each family that has fulfilled its 4 hourvolunteer obligation and submitted the Ridge Baseball Club Work Bond Form will have theoption to:
(i) Have their Work Bond returned (refunds will be made to your credit card or mailed by check after 11/15),or
(ii) Donate the bond amount to RBC for equipment purchases and capital improvement projects.
The League wants every family to fulfill the Work Bond obligation by volunteering. Help RBC improve and expand the services it offers to the children of this community. If you are unable to fulfill the Work Bond obligation the funds received ($100 per family) will be used to hire resources to assist with efforts around the complex and help with other capital projects.
Jobs for which a family may volunteer will include: player evaluations (spring & travel), clinics, sportswear sales, opening the complex, opening day, tournaments, fundraising, facilities clean-up and improvement, closing the complex, etc. In addition, managing or coaching a team may fulfill Work Bond obligations, limited to one manager and three coaches per team. Available jobs will be posted on the website throughout the spring and summer baseball seasons.
