OMGAA Dibs Program for the 2022 Season

2022 OMGAA Baseball and Fastpitch (traveling and house leagues) DIBS PROGRAM:

The DIBS volunteer program is designed to help OMGAA families carry out the various tasks and duties needed to give our players a great experience this season.  The intent is to build an OMGAA community based on volunteerism and service.  We ask each family to give 3 hours of service to various events throughout the year.  Past years have seen great participation during the early parts of the season, but we really need help with tournaments and events later in the season.  

OMGAA offers (and needs your help with) a variety of programs and leagues for both in-house and travel baseball and fastpitch.  We encourage you to serve DIBS hours outside of your player's league! DIBS hours are good for the entire OMGAA organization.  If your player plays travel fastpitch, your DIBS hours can be served in baseball or house fastpitch.  Or vice versa - we encourage you to help wherever you can!

NEW CHANGES FOR DIBS FOR 2022

DIBS Opportunities for the 2022 season will be available from September 1st, 2021 thru August 31st, 2022.  The OMGAA DIBS Coordinator will record all volunteer request and fulfilments.
