Requirements

Our club is an all-volunteer organization; therefore, during each season, families will be required to fulfill at least nine (9) work hours for each player registered on a Rapids Kickers team.  These nine (9) hours will consist of both non-tournament and tournament volunteer work.

A minimum of five (5) hours of non-tournament volunteer work per each registered player must be fulfilled during the season starting on August 1 and ending July 31.  Families with more than three (3) registered players will only be required to work ten (10) hours of non-tournament work during this period.

  1. A minimum of four (4) hours and maximum of (6) hours of tournament volunteer hours per each registered player must be fulfilled during the weekend of the tournament. The hours are based on the man hours needed to run a successful tournament. Families with more than three (3) registered players will only be required to work twelve (12) hours the weekend of the tournament.  Families that are unable to fulfill their required hours the weekend of the tournament must contact the Tournament Volunteer Coordinator(s) prior to the tournament weekend for alternative work options. 

  2. A fall or spring only family must complete five (5) work hours as described above.  A minimum of three (3) of these will be fulfilled during the weekend of the tournament.

  3. Family work hours (tournament and non-tournament) will be tracked by the Volunteer Coordinator(s).  The Volunteer Coordinator(s) and the Tournament Coordinator(s) will determine what volunteer work qualifies for tournament and non-tournament hours.

  4. Families who do not fulfill their volunteer work requirements during a season may be assessed a fee of $50.00 per hour not served and will be required to pay this assessment prior to September 1 of the same year or the player card will be withheld.

  5. Coaches and Assistant Coaches fulfill their tournament and non-tournament family work hours as a function of performing their coaching services throughout the season and at tournaments. Coaches and Assistant Coaches that are also players, fulfill their own tournament and non-tournament hours, not the whole family’s hours.

  6. Board of Directors fulfill their tournament and non-tournament family work hours as a function of performing their BOD responsibilities throughout the year.
