The league has used various fundraising models over the years and has included some fun opening day fundraisers for basket raffles and hit a thon, and team and league sponsorships. For the 2018 season, the league is changing the makeup of the fundraising programs and is no longer requiring that each team provide a team sponsor.
Instead, we collected a refundable $50 fee upon registration. Fundraising and sponsorship programs are used to fund improvements to the fields and equipment, including the new pitching mounds, bases, and fence windscreens last season. Also, a large portion of these funds were used 2017 to fund team banners. Given the change in team sponsorship, we will not be providing team banners but will recognize the sponsors in a different way. The balance of these funds will be used to improve the sprinkler system, enlarge the infields, and improve the surface at Jackson and improve the surfaces on the field and bullpens at RLCC and Bill Payne. We are also launching longer term initiatives for fundraising to further improve our facilities.Full Fundraising Options for Business$50 Refundable Sponsorship Fee
The sponsorship fee per player can be refunded by obtaining a business sponsor. This can be done in a couple of ways. Simply find a business who would like to sponsor your player or players. Once we have received the sponsor's check, we will refund the sponsorship fee paid during registration. Player sponsorship is $75 and includes the sponsors name on our website (this is option #1 on the link above)
. Team sponsorships are also available. Once you have a player sponsor, please email [email protected]
to complete the sponsorship. Be sure to include the business name, player(s) name and any other necessary information in your email. Volunteering fee (optional $75 buyout) and fee refunds:
Livermore Little League is built by volunteers and the league thrives when everyone in our community volunteers their time to contribute to the development of youth baseball. We appreciate all the countless hours of volunteer time and dedication from our parents and community over the past seasons. The league is requesting that each family commit to volunteering for 7 hours. In alignment with the district and national little league guidelines, we are offering families the option of buying out of these volunteer commitments. We are reducing this buyout from $150 last season, to $75. In order to waive this fee, you sign up during the registration process. This can be changed or modified later, but it is used to capture volunteers and organize them efficiently.
We are also offering two volunteering options that provide fee refunds of $250 - umpiring and snack shack volunteers. Umpires who complete 12 games will receive a refund of $250 against their registration fees. Additionally, snack shack volunteers who complete 25 hours will also receive $250 refunds. Email [email protected]
to request a refund after your hours have been completed and verified.
