It takes significant time, energy and funding to support the Old Bridge Soccer League and to make it as enjoyable as possible for your child. The program registration fee does not cover all the costs to run the program. Each player's parents will be required to volunteer their time. This approach will equally distribute the responsibility to all members of the organization for raising funds and provide the support to run this league.
All families are required to volunteer a minimum of three (3) hours in support of the organization. Your volunteer time can include time in the concession stand, field opening and closing, set-up/clean-up, etc. There are numerous opportunities for families to fulfill their work bond obligations. A $125.00 work bond check will be required when you pick up your players uniform during the scheduled uniform distribution night. This work bond check will be refunded when your hours of participation are completed. It is your responsibility to schedule a time convenient for you to fulfill your commitment to the league using the procedure below
