Volunteers
BVGASA is a non-profit organization that survives on the volunteer time and dedication of its members, specifically the parents and businesses of the community. Again this year we will need volunteers for Team Managers, Coaches, Team Mom's, Parent Helpers, etc. (anyone who interacts with the players). If you have the desire to be a part of this season's effort in one of these capacities, you will need a new USA Softball background check completed as this is an USA Softball annual requirement. If you get it started now you will be cleared prior to the beginning of the season.

Just click on the "Log In" link on the upper right hand corner of this page then click on the "Register to Volunteer" link to get the process started.

Once you complete the on-line volunteer registration, bring a copy of this completed volunteer form and a $10 processing fee (if you did not pay on-line) to BV volunteer coordinator Jackie. When the process is completed, it will allow you to help with on-field activities like games and practices. Without this, adults are not allowed on any of the fields during league activity times. This is a USA Softball annual requirement so once you get this done, you can use it without renewing throughout the year, no matter what league you are involved with.
