Parent Responsibilities

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 4 hours unless I pay the Volunteer Fee to opt out.

  2. I may still be asked to help with Team Related tasks that are not part of the "4 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, helping coaches as required etc.

  3. A list of soccer volunteer opportunities will be available online once the season begins, and I will also be contact by the volunteer coordinator with non-soccer related volunteer opportunities. It is my responsibility to ensure that I meet my volunteer obligation. 

**Please note, opt out fees will be determined PRIOR TO REGISTRATION on February 1 of the 2020.  The policy remains in effect.

For more information about volunteer opportunities in BRCA please contact the volunteer coordinator at


Volunteer Policy and Information

The overall success of any BRCA event or Program depends upon our volunteers. When registering in Children’s Outdoor Soccer, all families will be expected to volunteer a minimum of 4 hours per family in support of any BRCA Program or event. 

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.

For anyone who may be unwilling or unable to volunteer for the required 4 hours, there is the opportunity to choose to pay a $75.00 OPT OUT fee in order to opt out of the volunteer requirement. (There will be an OPT OUT option available during the registration process, and the fee will be added to your total cost at checkout.)
