What is this “Volunteer Fee” I’ve been hearing about?
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.
