WE NEED YOUR HELP!
The Toms River Little League is run entirely by volunteers. There is a great deal of work that happens “on and off the field" to have this league operate successfully. As an ALL volunteer organization, Toms River Little League relies on participating families to operate efficiently. A big part of that, in addition to getting your kids to practices and games, is volunteering. In order to encourage volunteer participation from our parents and to be equitable to all families, the league has a Work Bond Program. During player registration, each family will be required to submit a mandatory Work Bond check (one per family). The amount of the Work Bond is $200 and should be posted date 7/31/2023.
Please Note: Players will not receive their team uniform until their family's Work Bond payment has been received.
Each family is required to fulfill 5 hours in order to satisfy the work bond requirement by July 31st. Families who do not meet their volunteer requirements and/or submit the Toms River Little League Work Bond Form by July 31st will forfeit that season's work bond. In addition, it is the responsibility of the parents to track and submit the Toms River Little League Work Bond Form by the deadline July 31st.
The League wants every family to fulfill their Work Bond obligation by volunteering. A list of volunteer work bond opportunities will be emailed throughout the season. Volunteer opportunities include: Opening day activities, tournaments, fundraising, Spring clean-ups, field maintenance, managing, coaching, and team parent (limited to one manager and three coaches/team parents per team).
Please Note: All volunteer hours must be approved by a board member.
Once the Spring season is completed, each family that has fulfilled its volunteer obligation (5) hours and submitted the Toms River Little League Work Bond Form will have their work bond check returned (mailed after July 31st).
