Volunteer Shift Information - New for 2018Updated Monday March 19, 2018 by Greenfield Little League.
2018 VOLUNTEER SHIFT INFORMATION
GLL is a volunteer-run and based organization. To ensure that all aspects of the league run smoothly, we use an online service to book our needed positions which include clean-up days, coaches, concessions, fundraiser event help and clean up days. Each family is required to volunteer for a minimum of 1 shift per child each season (limited to 2 shifts max per family -- this is new as in the past we had 1 shift max per family). You are encouraged to sign up for multiple shifts if you would like to contribute more. Once you select your shift you will receive an email from the volunteer website. That email should be uploaded to your child’s profile in PDF, TIF, JPG or PNG format. You can convert it to these formats using a scanner or just by taking a picture on your cell phone and uploading it. Once uploaded the volunteer coordinator will verify the shift and approve the file.
You should NOT upload a copy of your check. The check must be mailed to the P.O. Box address below). We will collect and hold the $200 volunteer check and will NOT cash this check unless you do not fulfill your volunteer shift. If you have 2 or more children, two (2)-$200 checks must be mailed in (a total of $400). This is not part of registration fees and not included on your invoice. Checks are to be mailed to:
GREENFIELD LITTLE LEAGUE
PO BOX 20945
GREENFIELD WI 53220
If you include a self-addressed, stamped envelope, the check will be returned to you. Otherwise, the check with be shredded. Once GLL confirms receipt of the check, we will verify that document in your child’s profile.
Please note that each team is only allocated 3 volunteer spots for coaching. Coaches are required to fill out the application and also pass the background check before being assigned to a team. They also are required to sign up for the coach shift on Volunteer Spot and provide the league with confirmation and the volunteer deposit. If the coaching application is denied they must sign up for another volunteer position. All coaches must send in a $200 volunteer check as well. Please note: A volunteer check must be sent in for each child (up to 2 children).
NEW THIS SEASON: In the past, if you volunteer was rained out, your volunteer requirement was considered complete. For the 2018 season, this is not the same. If games are canceled due to weather and fields are closed for your scheduled shift, you will be required to sign up for another volunteer shift. However, if the games are canceled during your volunteer shift, your volunteer duties will be counted as complete!
Your volunteer deposit will not be cashed initially. If you do not show up for your scheduled volunteer shift, your check will be cashed immediately. If you reschedule for another shift, you have the ability to receive $100 of your volunteer fee back at the end of your scheduled shift. All other checks that were sent in will be returned only if you provided a self-addressed, stamped envelope. Any check that does not include the envelope will be destroyed/shredded.
The VolunteerSpot link will not be active for the 2018 season until March 2018 after game schedules are set.
