Refundable $50.00 Volunteer Fee
Each family with a player in the Academy or Select programs is asked to volunteer 5 hours per year for their child. Additional children playing Academy or Select do not increase the upfront $50.00 fee, but the overall volunteer time is increased to 8 hours per family. Upon completion of the volunteer hours, families may be eligible for reimbursement of the $50.00 fee*. Families have the option to receive reimbursement, apply the money to their player account, or donate it to our Scholarship Fund. Families that do not complete volunteer hours will forfeit the $50.00 to the Black Hills Rapids Soccer Club.
The $50.00 fee will appear on your player account statement.
Volunteer opportunities are plentiful within our organization and may include such things as coaching, team manager, tournament volunteer, committee member or assisting with other club functions and outreach activities. All families throughout the organization are encouraged to volunteer.
Upon completion of volunteer hours, the family is responsible for completing and submitting the Volunteer Form. The form can be mailed to Black Hills Rapids at P.O. Box 273, Rapid City, SD 57709-0273 or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. The Volunteer Form is available here. Once you've accrued 5 hours, please submit completed form right away to help us streamline the verification process. Thank you!
*If a player’s account has a negative balance upon completion of the volunteer time, the fee will be applied to the account.
