WHY AM I BEING CHARGED A $100.00 FAMILY BOND (for Spring ONLY)??

-All families who register to play for WLL will be charged a $100.00 family bond in the Spring season only. This bond is per family, not per player (the website will break it down per player). Once one family member donates 4 hours of their time volunteering for WLL, you will receive your bond back (In June for the end of spring season. A check will be issued to anyone who fulfills their bond requirements. 
Volunteer opportunities include, and are not limited too, managing a team, helping to coach with a manager, field clean up, uniform distribution, concession stand (COVID PERMITTING), and safety officers. 


CAN MY CHILD BE ON THE SAME AS ANOTHER PLAYER?
WLL makes every effort to honor all special requests when it comes to placing players on certain teams with their friends/carpool issues. T-ball and Instructional level the rule is, if the request comes in before the draft and uniforms have not been yet ordered, it is possible, but not  guaranteed. This all depends on how many managers and coaches WLL has, and the amount of players on each team. WLL must make sure all talent level on all teams AND the amount of players on each team is balanced and fair. Again all special requests MUST come in before the draft to be considered. After the draft it will not be possible to honor special requests as teams have already been created and uniforms have been ordered.

FOR MINOR LEVEL TEAMS AND ABOVE: Same Rules apply; all special requests MUST be placed prior to the draft as managers draft for competition and have certain coaches in place already, after the draft and evaluations, a player WILL NOT BE MOVED. WLL will be as fair and balanced as they can be!


You CANNOT request to be placed on certain teams because they practice or play games on a day/time that works best for you only. WLL allows managers and the board of directors to set practice days/times and game schedules. Some teams play in pods with other surrounding areas, and you CANNOT request to be placed on a team because they practice or play at a certain day or time.

No, if you signed up on the website that's telling WLL that your'e interested in helping. This position is not guaranteed, unless your team manager tells you so.
