Volunteer requirement:
VPAA requires volunteerism from every family. It will be the responsibility of each team to provide 2 concession workers for their 6 home games. Depending on team size this could mean 1 or 2 times per family.  In addition to the team responsibility each family is responsible for 4 hours of either field duty or additional concession time during tournaments and other times needed by VPAA.

VPAA is a volunteer organization and every member of VPAA is considered a volunteer. This organization belongs to every registered family; the board of directors is simply volunteer caretakers of the day-day operations. Unless you are volunteering as a coach, the volunteer commitment is a minimum of 6 hours per family.
