Tonka Softball's Volunteering Information
Like other youth sports, MGSA requires that each player-family volunteer to support our program. We provide a variety of ways to volunteer, shown below, and some choices are based upon the league you are registering for. You will receive a link to a sign up genius way in advance to the start of the season. You'll be contacted with more information as the season approaches.
You may also choose the Buyout for $150. You may add this to your registration fee, or send a check to MGSA. Buyouts must be received prior to the start of the season.
Volunteer shift requirements differ based upon the player's league. You are responsible for making sure you fulfill your volunteer commitment! Anyone who does not sign up for a duty will be notified and will forfeit your deposit.
Fastpitch Requirement: Two Shifts Per Player (This does not pertain to Fall Ball 2022)
Fastpitch Exemptions: One head coach per team is exempt from all volunteering, two assistants and one team manager are required only ONE shift per player.
Slowpitch Requirement: One Shift per Player
Slowpitch Exemptions: One Head Coach, Two Assistants, and One Team Manager per team.

Volunteer deposits are to be paid to Tonka Softball's Volunteer PayPal account. Please transfer $200 to @TonkaSoftball.
Please note your daughter's first name, last name, and league in which she is playing. Please select FAMILY AND FRIENDS!
When your volunteer duty is performed, Tonka Softball will refund your $200 (through PayPal). If by the end of the season your volunteer requirement has yet to be fulfilled, Tonka Softball will transfer the deposit to our bank account.
Your daughter will not be placed on a team until the $150 buyout (a selection through registration) or the $200 PayPal transfer has been paid.
If you are not able to complete your ASSIGNED duty, please allow our Volunteer Coordinator a 48 hour notice to find a replacement. If your originally scheduled volunteer duty was cancelled due to rain or game cancelation, you are required to sign up for another duty. Most games for teams 10U and older are rescheduled (both slowpitch and fastpitch).
We work very hard to accommodate special requests for volunteering. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have a special request.
No-shows will not be given another opportunity, and the Venmo transfer will take place.
We do not accept checks for volunteer deposits. PayPal only. If your family has more than one child in the program please pay $200 for the first child, and then $100 for any additional children.
Volunteering opportunities will be emailed to you and be posted on the website throughout the season. Please do not hesitate to reach out to the volunteer coordinator!
