Contribution Award Overview:

  • The Mabel League depends on volunteering from its members in order to keep league fees low for all players and create a cooperative, multi person supported league.
  • When players/teams take on various tasks and duties throughout the year they will be granted a predetermined number of points (outlined in chart at end of doc).  Points are determined based on work effort and/or importance associated with that task.
  • There are also 3 tasks highlighted in blue on the chart at the end of this doc.  Team(s) taking on these tasks will be provided a 25% share of total profit from the event (revenue minus expenses).
  • At the end of the softball season, points will be tallied to determine which 3 teams will share in the Contribution Award. The total amount to be awarded will be equal to the per team league fees for the upcoming year.  The team with the most points will receive 50% of that award; team two will receive 30% and team three 20%; to a maximum of $1,000.  **Note: this is not a cash award, it is a discount only.  If the team does not return the following year the award cannot be received or distributed.  If the team simply changes their name but maintains at least 50% of their players from the year earned, the award stands.

  • When players/teams take on various tasks and duties throughout the year they will be granted a predetermined number of points (outlined in chart at end of doc).  Points are determined based on work effort and/or importance associated with that task.

  • At the end of the softball season, points will be tallied to determine which 3 teams will share in the Contribution Award. The total amount to be awarded will be equal to the per team league fees for the upcoming year.  The team with the most points will receive 50% of that award; team two will receive 30% and team three 20%.  This will be in effect for the 2008 season; therefore if the 2009 league fees are $800 per team, the top team from 2008 will get a $400 discount on 2009 league fees, team two would get a $240 discount on 2009 league fees and team three would get a $160 discount on league fees for 2009.  **Note: this is not a cash award, it is a discount only.  If the team does not return the following year the award cannot be received or distributed.  If the team simply changes their name but maintains at least 50% of their players from the year earned, the award stands.
