NOTE: This policy is for 8U and up, this does not include the Little Spartans.
In the interest of creating a more fair and equitable situation for all our members, the IGHSF has determined that a Volunteer policy needs to be established for its travel teams’ members. We have in the past had a small group of members doing the large majority of the volunteering. This creates an unfair circumstance, and at times has made it very difficult to get enough volunteers for a particular event. Thus, we have researched what several other youth associations have done in terms of volunteering and created our own policy.
Our association is dedicated to providing the lowest possible cost to players, while at the same time continuing to provide excellent equipment/uniforms, clinics. We have established many fundraisers to meet those goals, but we require help in carrying out those opportunities. Therefore, we will begin implementing the requirements below:
Ø Each family will pay a volunteer fee of $250.
Ø One family member of each player will be required to volunteer for a minimum of 6 hours
Ø Those not meeting this requirement will forfeit the $250 volunteer fee to the association. (See below)
Administration of the Policy:
Our Fundraising chairperson will organize, delegate and monitor all volunteering. In order for it to count towards your yearly requirement, IT MUST BE PRE-ARRANGED through the chairperson. This can all be done through the website. The policy will be administered as follows:
Ø Upon player registration, all players will be required to submit a separate check for $250 for their volunteer fee, as well as sign a volunteer form. This check WILL NOT be cashed unless forfeited.
Ø All fundraising events will be posted on our website, http://ighsf.com , under the link “Dibs”.
Ø The duties and time slots will vary depending on the fundraiser.
Ø Slots will be filled on a first-come/first-served basis.
Ø You can also email or call the fundraising coordinator to volunteer.
Our Fundraising chairperson will monitor each event, the volunteers who participated and the number of hours worked. Upon the completion of our last fundraiser for the year, all members who have met their yearly obligation will have their uncashed check returned to them. Those not meeting the obligation will have their checks cashed at that time.
