BASEBALL LEAGUES (for boys and girls)

The baseball program is divided into leagues based on school grade. In order to maintain the proper level of competition in each league and to allow developing players to benefit from playing with more experienced players, all players are required to play only in their proper and assigned league, except where a safety concern dictates playing in a lower division. All leagues play at least 2 games per week on
pre-designated days.

The divisions are as follows:

2020 Spring Work Bond Opportunities

Our work bond is established to encourage families to put in the small amount of time required – it’s critical to the operation of our all-volunteer league. 

During the season, most families work in various support roles, and opportunities will be publicized on the website.  

Here’s how it works: (1) you paid your bond for spring registration; (2) from now through October, work your 4 hour shift and next year when you register - you will receive a single use coupon code to remove the WB Fee from your shopping cart. 

We keep a master list of who volunteers during the year so we can get registrations once complete.  

You can e-mail questions to [email protected]

FAQ's
What is the Work Bond?   
A work bond is a bond (check) paid to Bridgewater Baseball/Softball when your child enters the recreational Spring program. That check is deposited but ultimately can be refunded in full when your child has finished playing Rec baseball.   

How much is the work bond? 

The work bond is $100 ($150 starting in 2018 for new work bond families) Does everyone pay the work bond? Families with players only in the T-ball or Babe Ruth league are exempt from paying the work bond.  All other Rec players pay the bond.  

Does this cover Tournament players as well? 
No, the Tournament program and the Rec program are two completely separate programs. Tournament players pay a separate fee.

How do I satisfy the Work Bond requirements? 
You can satisfy the WB by volunteering for one of the following:  Becoming a Board member, Team Manager, 1st or 2nd Coach for a Rec team 4 continuous hours in  Special events or functions – Opening Day, Closing Day,  Uniforms, Signs, Clinics, Picture days etc.

What is the purpose of the work bond? 
Bridgewater Baseball/Softball is a 100% volunteer organization, including the Board of Directors.  The work bond encourages our families to volunteer and help maintain the Rec program.  Your volunteer work hours help to maintain the level of excellence that we have achieved and maintained for years.

How do I get my work bond refund? 
When your child leaves our program, with no plans for returning the following year, you may request a work bond refund after November of that year.  If you have satisfied your work bond requirements, you will be issued a full refund.  If you choose not to work, you forfeit the bond, and those monies are used for equipment, field maintenance and capital improvements.  Either way, the work bond is a critical part of what keeps this program running.  You can request your refund by emailing the BBSI Treasurer.
