VOLUNTEERING

Peninsula Soccer is an organization that depends entirely on volunteers to operate. A minimum of 10 hours of volunteer time must be contributed over the season by a parent or guardians of each player. In the case of multiple children in the club 10 hours per family will fulfill the requirements. In lieu of volunteering you can opt out by stating on your registration form or send an email to the Volunteer Coordinator during the season that you would like your cheque cashed. At registration time the cheque must be dated current.

Each parent is responsible for ensuring that they meet their 10 hour minimum requirement and that the Manager on your team send in a report called TEAM YEAR-END Volunteer Summary, two weeks after the final game. Send an email to Volunteer Coordinator (Tracy Lawrence)

Volunteer cheques will be cashed as soon as the Volunteer Coordinator is able to compile all the results.
