VOLUNTEER POLICY AND INFORMATION

The overall success of any BRCA event or program depends upon our volunteers. All families will be expected to volunteer in a BRCA program or event for a minimum of 4 hours per family. 

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 ($75) 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 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 membership@brcacalgary.org
