Are you looking for an opportunity to contribute some time to help growing an organization for a sport that you or your child loves? If so, we would love for you to join our team of volunteers.
The Importance of Volunteers
Without volunteers the BDRA wouldn't be able to operate. Our executive team which oversees the operation of the league is made up entirely of volunteers. The BDRA needs a variety of additional volunteers to ensure a smooth operation of our programs. We also require assistance to make our special events a complete success and a positive and enjoyable experience for players and families.
