What is the volunteer policy?

Starting with the 2023 season, families will be required to volunteer two hours per player (four hours max per family). A $100 deposit will be collected before uniforms are distributed and voided/returned upon completion of the required hours. Click here for more information.

All volunteers who work directly with kids must submit a volunteer background check through JDP. Those who volunteer 16+ hours per month or 32+ hours per year must also complete a Live Scan background check per California law (AB 506).
