A communication will be sent out soon with registration opportunities to help all of our families enjoy a nice day at the ball fields. We are in need of parents to step up and be a part of the Auxiliary Committee. If you can find the time to help open or close the Snack Shack once a week or every other week, we would greatly appreciate the help.

CONCESSION STAND SIGN UP AND REIMBURSEMENT PROCESS



The Snack Shack Sign up site (Volunteer Spot) has been activated. 

 

BBR families are charged a $50 retainer fee as part of the registration process.  Families can earn this retainer fee back by working one 2-hour shift per child in the Concession Stand. For example, a family with 2 children playing in the league must complete two 2-hr shifts. 

 

Refunds will be issued in check form on a rolling basis upon receipt and verification of The Reimbursement Request Form.  The Reimbursement Request Form can be found on the BBR website under the link called "handouts" and must be submitted at the concession stand after fulfilling your entire obligation.  Refunds will be available for pickup at the stand, 5 play days after they are submitted.

 

We use an online scheduling website called Volunteer Spot that will enable you to select your Snack Shack shifts dates.  Here’s how it works:  

 

Step 1 Select the following link:   
 

You should see a page that says “Welcome to VolunteerSpot and your sign up for 2015 Bear Babe Ruth!”

Step 2.  Enter your e-mail address in both fields and select the “Submit” button. This step allows VolunteerSpot to verify your e-mail address and is important because the site will send a reminder e-mail 2 days prior to your commitment date.  (You will NOT need to register for an accoun at VolunteerSpot).  

Step 3Sign up!  You will be taken you to the calendar where you’ll select your dates/times.

Step 4.  Pick any dates in the calendar and the next screen will show the shifts available.  Select the yellow “Sign up here” box!  Upon selection the yellow box will turn green and show how many spots you signed up for.  Select “save and close” at the top or bottom of the page.  This brings you back to the calendar view. “Your spots” will show in green on the calendar days you selected. 

Step 5.  Select the Red “Confirm” button at the top of the page.   Click the Green “continue” button on the “Thanks for signing up page” and you’ll see a final webpage listing your selection.  At the same time you willl receive an e-mail with your dates outlined. 

Step 6.  To change your selections, click the View/Change link inside of the confirmation e-mail to go back to the calendar and follow steps 4 and 5 above.

Kodiak Park - Phase 2 to include Miracle League Field

We have not given up on our dream to host one of the first Miracle League Fields in Delaware.  We are still hoping we can make that happen but as with many things, we don't have the funds to build that field yet.  If you are passionate about working with children with disabilities and giving them the opportunity to play the sport we all love, please consider reaching out to your employer or large corporations for field grants.  The estimate is that it would take $100,000 in site work, plus an additional $200,000 to build the Miracle League Field. Thank you for your continued support.
