Welcome to the Green Bay West Side Youth Baseball Website!

State of the League

Hello GBWY Families,

I sincerely hope everyone is having a fun season and enjoying summer. I just have a quick message regarding concession  duties... few years ago, as I was Minors Division Commissioner, I saw first hand that our old fundraising efforts were a real struggle to manage by coaches, parents and the board. After taking the Coaching Director and then Vice President role, I worked with the board to examine whether or not it was truly a worthy use of our time and efforts. We were surprised to find that we were not making much money at all off the efforts. The treasurer and I worked to build a better plan... we lowered the standard cost of membership from $90 to $75, eliminated the previous player fundraising requirements and were able to build a scholarship fund for those that need help with fees. We’re were able to do this by increasing corporate donations and putting a stronger focus on concession revenue. That being said, we need every parent to be diligent about working their share of time in the stand and ensuring it is always open during games. There are links to sign up on the site(www.gbwybaseball.org). I mention this because I’m told not all slots are being filled and some volunteers are being overextended. Some volunteers have even worked shifts without having any kids in the program. The stand represents a way for the league to give the kids a an opportunity to play the game at a much lower rate. Please be diligent about taking your shifts and ensuring we have it covered. If not, we will have to look at alternative options to manage the costs of running the league. Equipment, field maintenance, supplies, uniforms, city fees, insurance, chartering costs, etc add up to a large expense for a volunteer run non-profit like ours. Let’s all work together to do what we can to make the league affordable for all kids we serve!

 

Thank you and have a great summer!

Chad
