Working Hours: Parents of 8 and 9 year olds will be expected to work the concession stand at Independence Park during in-house league game nights. Our Concessions Committee will assign shifts prior to the season. Please look for the schedule to be posted on the website. All parents are expected to work their scheduled hours or find a replacement to cover their scheduled time.
Parents of 10-13 year old non-traveling players are expected to work during the MSF 13AA State Tournament hosted by MAYBA July 26th-28th, 2024.
Parents of 10-14 year old traveling players are expected to work during their respective home tournament (Parents of 13 year old traveling players will work both the home tournament and state tournament). Our home tournament dates are as follows:
8U/9U: June 21st-23rd

These working hours are a requirement of being involved in the MAYBA program. We typically try to keep the requirement to 5 hours maximum per player per season. For traveling players, the requirement may exceed 5 hours based on tournament size, location, weather issues, etc.
If you fail to work your required scheduled hours, you will be billed $50 by MAYBA (flat fee based on assumed 5 hour commitment x $10). You may choose to BUY your way out of working for $50…this should be done prior to the season.
We appreciate and thank you for all of your efforts in making our program a successful one. If you have any questions about working contact our President, Ryan Schlenner.
