Discussion of "Work Bonds." Parents put up a check at sign ups that they can "work off" during the sport’s season, with a ‘buy out’ option, or supply a community service volunteer. If the balance is not even, then the check amount goes to the organization.

Examples of ways to work it off might include attending a monthly meeting, picking up trash at the field after a game, lining a field, working in the concession stand, etc.

Will be suggested at by-law review meeting. Coordinators should make a list of volunteer duties.’
