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 4 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 4 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
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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. If I do not, my volunteer cheque MAY BE cashed.
**Please note, opt out fees and volunteer cheque fee will be determined PRIOR TO REGISTRATION on February 15 of the 2019. The policy remains in effect.
