Refundable Volunteer Fee
Countless, unpaid hours are spent behind the scenes to successfully run a club like ours, and the “Volunteer Fee” is a great system that many youth sports organizations employ to keep costs down and quality up. Simply, it is a yearly refundable “fee” that is paid in lieu of volunteering to help the organization, and only applies to the Academy and Select programs. The amount is paid up front, and worked off through volunteering a certain number of hours. If you would rather not volunteer your time, you can simply forfeit the fee amount. Otherwise, once your time commitment is fulfilled, you have the option to be reimbursed or to apply the money to your player account. We hope you choose to give your time, because we could use your help. Learn more here.
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 [email protected]. 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.
