2021 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!
*3 hours per player or 6 hours per family (with 2 or more players)
*$200.00 buyout per family- if you choose this option, you will not be required to do DIBS hours.
* HEAD COACHES ARE EXEMPT FROM DIBS. Assistant coaches will be required to fulfill dibs hours.
*DIBS Deposit Check - each OMGAA family will be required to give their head coach a DIBS deposit check in the amount of their buyout. If you elect the buyout, OMGAA will deposit the check. If you do not elect the buyout, we will hold that check and destroy it once your DIBS requirement is met.
*Watch for DIBS opportunities and information on how to sign up for DIBS hours soon after registration
***PLEASE NOTE ROOKIE LEAGUE EXCEPTION: DIBS Checks for the Rookie League will be collected at evaluations.
OMGAA ACADEMIC Scholarship PROGRAM
The OMGAA Academic Scholarship Program was established in 2004. In 2009 the Scholarship was renamed in honor of Michael Parenteau, former President and long time board member.
Scholarships are awarded based on ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE without regard to athletic achievement.
Since May of 2004, the OMGAA Academic Scholarship Program has awarded over $24,000.00 in scholarships to graduating area seniors from public and private schools that have played at least two seasons in an OMGAA program with at least one being while attending school as a freshman, sophomore or junior.
Applications for the OMGAA Academic Scholarship Program must be submitted by March 31st and graduating seniors are encouraged to apply. Application forms may be downloaded here.
