(Revised Feb 6, 2019-NF)
As a community run soccer program volunteers are vital to the success of the program. The positions for volunteers vary and there is something for everyone of all abilities. Volunteering provides you with the opportunity to become involved with the program and help it be the best it can be. As well as showing your child you support and assist their activities. Volunteering ensures community soccer fees can remain reasonable, working together to reduce costs associated with operating the program.
Each family is required to fill one volunteer position throughout the season, regardless of how many children you have in the program. A volunteer position is either a half day commitment or an ongoing team commitment such as coaching, assisting, managing or managing the teams’ equipment. **All parents are encouraged to help out with the team by bringing snack, helping with set up or take down at games and supporting the coach where necessary to ensure the best soccer experience for your child and their teammates.
Families will be provided with 3 dates. These dates could be consecutive as a Friday/Saturday/Sunday. OR they may be 3 separate events. Times will vary some being weekend and some being during the week. While we do our best to accommodate your job preferences, please note that you could be contacted for positions outside this preference.
A volunteer deposit cheque will be required at the time of registration. This cheque will be dated for August 1st. This cheque will only be cashed under any the following circumstances:
Non Volunteer Payment Option
Families are busy and not always able to assist with volunteering. Should this be the case for your household you may decline to volunteer at registration and a 125$ additional charge will be added to your registration fees. You will not be contacted with volunteer requests throughout the season.
You are still encouraged to participate at the team level to ensure your child’s enjoyment in soccer.
All non volunteer fees are applied directly to the operational costs associated with the soccer program.
