Peninsula Soccer Club - Information for Volunteers
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 (Laine Bennett)
Volunteer cheques will be cashed as soon as the Volunteer Coordinator is able to compile all the results.
On a TEAM LEVEL the only duties that are recognized are:
Team Assistant Referee (3 per team, for U13 and up, 2 per team for Super 8's and 1 per team for Mini's). PSA annually presents Team AR Clinics which must be taken for this to be a volunteer duty. Each parent must fulfill 10 hours of Assistant Referee time.
Team Oranges Volunteer will be allowed if a person does it for the whole season. A suggestion is that you collect money from each parent; that way the cost is shared. PSA does not supply the oranges.
