Benicia Fastpitch runs on volunteers!
Wether you like to be behind the scenes or in the middle of the action, we could always use your help.
Available volunteer opportunities may vary but we can always use your help throughout the season.
If you are interested in becoming a manager, please fill out our volunteer opportunities form. Managers and coaches will be selected by the Benicia Fastpitch executive board and notifications will be made in January. We’re often fortunate enough to receive more individuals seeking manager and coach positions than we have teams.
If we are unable to assign you a team, we can still use your help in many other areas.
If you are planning on working with the players in any way (Managing, coaching, Team parent, Snack Shack, Helping at practices, etc...)
You will be required to take a background check and pass the Ace Certification (detailed information below).
The total cost will be approximately $30.
WE APPRECIATE YOUR WILLINGNESS TO VOLUNTEER!
If you have already filled out the volunteer form please see the steps below.
Steps to becoming a volunteer
Fill out the Volunteer Form
Complete ACE certification by going to the USA softball Website https://www.registerusasoftball.com/User/Default.aspx
Purchase the Background Check
Select ACE w/Background. You will be required to purchase the background check for $28.
Before you can proceed further, you must wait for the background check to be completed. Check back on the website periodically. This process takes a minimum of 2 business days.
While waiting for completion of you background check, you may complete your SafeSport Certification. If you were not previously registered with SafeSport, click on the “SafeSport First Time User Account Creation. SafeSport is connected through many other sports organizations, so if you have registered previously with another organization you can use the same account by clicking on “SafeSport Returning User Login”. Follow the prompts on the SafeSport website. For returning volunteers, only 1 module must be completed for renewal.
Once your background check is complete, proceed to the SafeSport Tab to ensure that your SafeSport Certification has been linked to your USA Softball account. If your information is not updated, provide your SafeSport Login information in order to sync accounts.
Once your accounts sync, you will see a congratulatory message stating that you are good for the upcoming season.
Proceed to the ACE Education tab and “Click here” to begin ACE testing.
Once you complete your testing, a congratulatory message stating that your “ACE Education card will be shipped soon” will appear.
