Team Parents: 

It is the Team Parents responsibility to make sure every volunteer has arrived for their shift and Chet’s is fully manned always including opening and closing. The last shift is the most important for the league. 

Your team will still have an obligation to work in Chet’s even if your child’s field is closed. It has happened in the past where one field is too wet, but the others are playable. Parents please be ready to volunteer regardless if your child’s game is canceled or not.   

In the event your team is canceled, and you are scheduled to work, we will contact your team parent with a make-up date. Your child’s team may or may not be playing on the same day, but we will try.

Even though we are present, Chet’s is still your team’s responsibility for the entire night. That means volunteers need to open and close with a two or three person minimum (not including children or teenagers). 



Chet's opens each weeknight at 5:00 pm.  

manual is also present to assist anyone with opening and closing

Signs are posted for guidance near every station.
