Volunteer Requirements

To ensure a broad base of volunteer support for the many demands of the PCTBL program, a volunteer deposit of $150 will be collected from each Basketball participant before the are allowed to play. NEW IN 2022--This is collected before A PLAYER MAY try out.


  • Provide excellent customer service at PCTBL hosted events.  
    • The primary volunteer event is to work a shift at the Pirate Tournament. This event is our big fundraiser, which SIGNIFICANTLY helps reduce your player registration fees.
  • Strive to minimize the burden of time and effort from a small number of volunteer board members, to a broader base of volunteers.
  • To “model” service and program commitment.


  • $150 Volunteer Deposit. 
  • A player will not be able to participate if the $150 deposit check is not turned in.  A $150 cash deposit is also acceptable and will be handled with a thorough receipt procedure.
  • Volunteer Deposits (checks) will be collected by the PCTBL Board at tryouts. The PCTBL Board shall be responsible to retain the checks. They will not be cashed unless a parent(s) does not complete the required volunteer hours. Please make sure to provide your check during tryout registration to assure the player will be permitted to participate in the season of play.
  • EACH registered player’s parent/guardian is responsible for providing 4-8 hours of volunteer time during designated events or forfeit the deposit. The primary (not only) volunteer event is to work the PCTBL Tournament (THIS IS REQUIRED FOR ALL TRAVELING PARENTS/GUARDIANS).                                                
  • Failure to fulfill the required volunteer hours will result in forfeiture of the Volunteer Deposit. No partial refunds will be made.
  • If the required volunteer hours have been fulfilled the check will be destroyed. For those not completing the requirement, the check shall be deposited into the BPTBL account.
  • Compliance determination will be made following the PCTBL Pirate Tournament.
