The NYBA will be collecting checks in advance for the DIBs volunteer program, requiring a commitment of 5 hours per FAMILY. Families are required to provide a check for $300 prior to participating in tryouts/evaluations for Travel and Minors or prior to the start of the season for all younger leagues. These checks will be held during the season. If at the end of the 2023 season the family has completed the required volunteer hours their check will be destroyed. However, if a family’s volunteer requirement has not been met by the end of the 2023 NYBA season, their check will be deposited into the NYBA account. Please note, if a deposited check does not have sufficient funds when it is deposited a return fee will be invoiced to the member and/or applied to future registrations.
Volunteering is essential to any youth organization and we strongly encourage you to be involved in helping to make the season a successful one for our kids. However, if you think your family will not be able to fulfill the DIBs requirement we are now offering a buyout option. To participate in the buyout option, families must submit a check for $200. Buyout checks are also due at tryouts/evaluations or prior to the season as the usual DIBs checks are. The buyout checks will be deposited at the time of receipt prior to the start of the season.
Families of rostered coaches, board members and travel team managers will be exempt from the required hours associated with DIBs.
We will be posting DIBs hours on our website under the DIBs tab where you can claim tasks to fulfill your volunteer obligation.
