Family Work

Family Work Bond

As communicated in the season kick off league meeting we are continuing forward with the family work bond. There’s a great deal of work that goes into making our league a success; on and off the field. As a volunteer organization we rely on our league members to serve the needs of our players, coordinate and manage all day to day activities related to our leagues existence. Including monthly meetings, league logistics; insurance, organizational memberships, registration with Cal Ripken, Babe Ruth, community outreach, safety and support and maintenance of our snack stand and ball fields. 

What is a work bond? It is a promise to serve our league as a volunteer in some capacity. The promise is made with a payment to the league in advance of the season and in addition to the season’s player registration fee.

How much is the work bond? The work bond is $100 (1 time per family per season)  When is it due? At the time of player registration.

How do families pay for the work bond? Through credit card online payment process during player registration

How do families satisfy their work bond requirements? Fulfilling 4 hours of time in various volunteer activities throughout the baseball year.

Who is required to pay the season work bond? Every family of RTJBL that has a player in the league.

  • Families with multiple children in the league will only pay one bond per season
  • RTJBL Board Members, Committee Chair Members, Approved Managers and three assisting coaches per team will have their bonds fee waived {as they put forth time equal to and or beyond the four hours throughout the season}. 
  • Coaches should check the coaches registration form for more information, their bond will be returned after satisfying requirements throughout the season.
