Volunteering and Volunteer Bond

WWPSA is a volunteer run organization that relies on volunteers to run its programs and maintain fields. To encourage volunteering, WWPSA charges one $50 volunteer bond per youth player (a maximum of one $50 bond per family) per seasonal year (July through June).

The bond is automatically added to the cost of registration for the first youth player registered by a family for the seasonal year. The bond will be credited/refunded after someone in the family fulfills a volunteer shift of at least 3 hours. Many volunteer opportunities are announced throughout the year that will be filled on a first-come, first-serve basis. All you need to do is sign-up for an opportunity, show up, sign-in (as proof of volunteering) and do your part.

Note: You will forfeit your Volunteer Bond and those funds will be returned to the WWPSA General Fund, if:

  • You do not complete your obligation by the end of June
  • Sign up and do not show so please make sure you can commit to the volunteer session before signing up
