WYBS Volunteers

WYBS is run by a group of volunteers who are dedicated to building character, courage and loyalty in our youth by providing fun, safe, and competitive programming to the young athletes of the Winchester community.

There are a number of volunteer opportunities available across our baseball and softball programs with varying time commitments.

  • Help coach a Team
  • Score Games (GameChanger app)
  • Field Maintenance
  • Snack Bar
  • Raise Funds / Sponsorships

Background Checks & Trainings

WYBS is required by Massachusetts state law to perform CORI checks on all volunteers.  In addition, our affiliation with Cal Ripken / Babe Ruth Baseball requires all volunteers to complete a background check and complete an Abuse Prevention Training.

All managers, coaches and league board members as well as any person who has consistent & direct contact with players through league sanctioned activities, must have a National Verified Background Check and Abuse Prevention Training completed and approved through Babe Ruth League, Inc. every 2 years.
