West Cobb Girls Softball Concession Duty Policy
Our concession stand operation is one of the primary means of generating revenue to support West Cobb Girls Softball. The funds help cover operating costs including umpire fees, player equipment, field equipment and facility improvements. Your participation in covering a single concession shift during the season helps to sustain our concession stand operation and ultimately keep player participation costs down.
Each player who registers to play at West Cobb Girls Softball must have a parent or guardian that meets the league's concession duty participation requirement.
There are two options to for meeting the concession duty requirement:
Option 1: Opt-out of concession duty participation by paying a non-refundable $100 fee. During the player registration process, you will have the option of paying the $100 opt-out fee in addition to your player's registration fee. No further concession duty participation will be required. This option must be completed during player registration and will not be available beyond the date of player registration.
Option 2: Participate in team concession duty with a $150 refundable deposit. If you elected the $150 concession deposit option you are asked to participate in a single concession shift (usually 4 hours) assigned to your daughter’s team. The $150 fee is per player unless they have sisters playing on the same team. Parents may not change their choice to participate in concession duty beyond the date of player registration.
Important: Your $150 refundable deposit is will be collected by your team's head coach. Make your check payable to West Cobb Girls Softball. We do not accept cash or credit cards for deposits - Checks only.
