Many of our Club members are unaware of just how much volunteer work and fundraising is necessary to operate and administer a quality football program. The Volunteer Program was introduced to encourage Club members to step forward and help out. The time commitment is reasonable and the help is beneficial and appreciated. Participation in the Volunteer Program is a mandatory component of registration with the Club.
A minimum of 10 hours of volunteer work is required to fulfill each family’s volunteer obligations, per player, per season. There are many opportunities to volunteer throughout the season. Volunteer signup is located on our website. Members can ‘claim’ volunteer opportunities there.
Value of Volunteer Cheque
The value of the volunteer program is set at $200 per player, per year.
Volunteer Cheque Submission
All Volunteer deposit cheques shall be submitted as per the instructions at registration and must be submitted to the Treasurer prior to Equipment Handout. Cheque must be written to SEXSMITH FOOTBALL CLUB. Parents who choose not to provide a volunteer cheque may have their player removed from all field activities until such time a cheque is received. Parents can choose to opt out of the volunteer program commitment and sign over the volunteer cheque commitment immediately; contact the Treasurer to exercise this option.
Some members are exempt from providing a volunteer cheque due to the extensive nature of their volunteering at the discretion of the Board.
