There are many volunteer opportunities available throughout the season. Our board members, head coaches, assistant coaches, and team managers are all volunteers! We cannot be a strong and successful softball program without your help and support. Please consider volunteering!
Volunteerism is the voice of the people put into action. These actions shape and mold the present into a future of which we can all be proud.

Tournament Volunteer Information
Rosemount Girls Traveling Fastpitch Softball (GTFS) hosts tournaments as our primary fundraising event. These tournaments are held in the spring, and are well attended, traditionally very successful, attract high quality teams, and have built a good reputation.
Rosemount Girls Traveling Fastpitch Softball (GTFS) hosts tournaments as our primary fundraising events. We also host some fall league games with a concession stand as another fundraiser. To make these events successful, and therefore ensure funds for our program, all families are required to complete volunteer hours.
At the beginning of each season, each player is required to turn in a $300 volunteer deposit check. This check will be returned or destroyed for families that complete their volunteer hours.
The number of hours required per player change from year to year based on program need, but average about 5 to 7 hours per player the family has in the program. There is a sign-up system that will be sent out to all families to sign up for shifts prior to each volunteer opportunity.
Exceptions to the volunteer hour rules are as follows:
Voting GTFS Board Members:
Are not required to work any volunteer hours due to the number of hours they volunteer throughout the year. They will make every effort to help as needed at each event GTFS hosts.
Head coaches (includes co-Head coaches) & ‘At Large’ GTFS Board Members:
Receive a volunteer waiver for 1 child per parent position. For example, if one parent is a head coach and there are two daughters in the GTFS program, then volunteer hours must be completed for one daughter. Like Voting GTFS Board Members, every effort should be made to assist at games/tournaments hosted by Rosemount for concessions and fields.
Volunteer hours still needed based on # of daughters, but sign-ups will be open for exclusive sign-up window for only assistant coaches to ensure priority volunteer hours.
