All parents are required to donate at least two hours of their time to man the concession stand, collect gate donations, or help with game and field support. Sign-up sheets will be available at parent information night and at the information table during practices.

The Silver Bullets is a non-profit organization and the people who keep the program running are volunteers. See below for volunteer deposit now required.
Volunteer/Equipment Deposits: Like most other programs, the Silver Bullets will collect an additional $50 volunteer deposit per family (to be paid by Aug. 8th). After you complete two hours of volunteer service, your check will be returned to you during practice the following week. Also, we must collect an additional $50 Equipment deposit per child (to be paid by Aug. 8th) to ensure the return of equipment at the end of the season.
