Volunteer Information

Our organization cannot exist without volunteers who are willing to maintain a positive and exciting environment for our participating youth.

In order to maintain your alumni status and receive your $200 volunteer refund (per family) you are required to volunteer for the organization 2(two) times for the season per family.

Opportunities for earning volunteer credits for the league include spirit wear sales, field set-up, field clean-up, split the pot, chains, trash, homecoming committee assignments, and others positions as needed.

At the time of equipment handout a check made payable to the NLYFA in the amount of $200 will be collected from each family. This check will be returned to you at the time of equipment turn in once all volunteer requirements have been met.

Volunteer sign up will occur ON-LINE and you will be notified when the sign up period is open. Time frames for games are approximate and can run longer due to weather conditions or injuries on the field. Please keep this in mind when you are signing up as we need you to be there for the entire game. If you are unable sign up online OR do not sign up for the required 3 credits, you will be able to sign up on Monday& Tuesday the first week of practice. After that, volunteer jobs will be assigned and finalized.  If you are unable to fulfill your assignment and have exhausted all other options you must notify your Volunteer Director.

In order to get credit for volunteering you must check in and check out with the Volunteer Director. Failure to do will be considered a NO SHOW. This includes Standby (On Call).

Please note that you are signing up for what you want (first come first serve) and the game time you want. If you sign up during your child’s game, then you are expected to work then. If you do not sign up and are assigned, every effort will be made to you assign you opposite your child’s game, but there is no guarantee . There is a chance that assignments will be made during your child’s game and you will be expected to work then.

The NLYFA does NOT have a “volunteer buyout” option.
