VOLUNTEER POLICY AND INFORMATION:

The overall success of any BRCA event or program depends upon our volunteers. When registering in Children’s Outdoor Soccer, a volunteer deposit cheque MAY be expected before the first soccer practice.  All families will be expected to volunteer in ANY BRCA program or event for a minimum of 5 hours per family. The volunteer deposit cheque will be returned to those who fulfill their volunteer commitment.

There are many volunteer positions and your contribution can be directly related to your child’s soccer team, the soccer program or other BRCA events throughout the year. You will be contacted by the BRCA Volunteer coordinator or soccer coordinator with opportunities to volunteer for soccer duties or for a non-sports related event.

If someone is unwilling or unable to volunteer for the 5 hours, they can choose to pay a volunteer fee in order to "opt out" of the volunteer obligation.

 
PARENT VOLUNTEER RESPONSIBILITIES:

As a parent/guardian of a soccer registrant:

1)   I am expected to volunteer for the BRCA in any program for a minimum of 5 hours unless I pay the Volunteer Fee to opt out.
2)   If I do not pay the volunteer opt out fee, I MAY be expected to provide a POST-DATED cheque before the first soccer practice, and if I do not fulfill my volunteer obligation this cheque will be cashed.
3) I may still be asked to help with Team Related tasks that are not part of the "5 hour minimum".  This does not include jobs like coaching, managing, Uniform handing out, equipment volunteers, photo night or community related jobs, but may include team things like snack rotation, setting up nets and equipment, helping coaches as required, etc.
4)   A list of soccer volunteer opportunities will be available online once the season begins, and I will also be contacted by the volunteer coordinator with non-soccer related volunteer opportunities.   It is my responsibility to ensure that I meet my volunteer obligation.  If I do not, my volunteer cheque will be cashed. 

**Please note, opt out fees and volunteer cheque fee will be determined PRIOR TO the start of the soccer season.  The policy remains in effect.

 For more information about volunteer opportunities in BRCA please contact the volunteer coordinator at volunteer@brcacalgary.org
