Volunteer Fee Information

We receive many questions regarding the Volunteer Fee that we charge as part of registration.  To help answer these questions we've created the following FAQ section.  If you still have a question please feel free to email us at [email protected] and we'll be glad to help!

What is the Volunteer Fee?


The volunteer fee was instituted many years ago as a way to offset costs that the club incurs by having to pay individuals to perform tasks that at one point were handled by volunteers.  We are aware that everyone's time is valuable, so if a family elects to not volunteer with the club the volunteer fee is considered their contribution.

How much is the Volunteer Fee?

A $40 per family (account) volunteer fee will be assessed each season (spring and fall).  The maximum annual volunteer fee will be $80 per family.  For those who have children registered for just recreational soccer, $40 will be added to your registration total at the time of checkout.  For those who have children registered for just travel soccer, $80 will be added to your registration total at the time of checkout since travel registration is for a full year.  For those who have children registered for both travel and recreational soccer, the volunteer fee will be assessed on your travel registration and it will be removed from any recreational registrations when you select the "Do you have any children in your family currently rostered on one of our 20XX-XX Travel teams?" option.

How do I earn my Volunteer Fee back?

Families can earn their volunteer fee back by doing volunteer jobs either during the season or over the summer.  During the season we will have opportunities to volunteer for field clean-up days and for concession stand duty.  Performing either of these tasks for 2 hours satisfies your volunteer commitment.  If any parent coaches (recreational or travel teams), is a team manager (travel teams) or performs travel write-ups (travel teams) the volunteer fee will automatically be earned back.

I signed up for a volunteer role during registration, so why am I'm still being charged $40

By selecting a volunteer activity during registration you are just indicating your interest in performing a volunteer activity.  For this reason everyone is charged the $40 Volunteer Fee upfront.  By signing up during registration it allows the club to notify you of volunteer opportunities specific to what you are interested in.  Ultimately, you must complete the volunteer activity to get the fee refunded.

I didn't sign up for a volunteer role during registration, is it too late?

It is never too late to volunteer!  You can check available volunteer opportunities, register for field clean-up days (if any remain) and register for concession stand duty at anytime by clicking the "Volunteering" link above.

I completed by volunteer task, how do I get my $40 back?

Upon completion and verification that your volunteer activity was complete, you will be added to our credit list.  At the conclusion of the season, we will issue credits as follows:

Credits Earned During Fall Season
- If you have an open payment plan for travel soccer we will credit the $40 directly to your next payment, lowering it $40.
- If you only have a child playing travel soccer and your account is paid in full we will mail you a $40 refund check.
- If you have a child that plays recreational soccer you will be issued a coupon code to deduct $40 from your spring registration.
- If you have a child that plays recreational soccer and they will not be returning for the spring season a $40 refund check will be mailed to you upon the closing of spring registration.

Credits Earned During Spring Season or Summer
- Regardless if your child plays travel or recreational soccer, you will be issued a coupon code to deduct $40 from your fall registration.
- If your child will not be returning for the fall season a $40 refund check will be mailed to you upon the closing of fall registration.

Please note, you may request a refund of your Volunteer Fee by check at any time by contacting us at [email protected].

I got charged $40 twice is this correct?

Most likely not.  You should only be charged once per season.  However, if you are signing up for travel soccer you are charged for the fall and spring volunteer fees together.  If you feel you have been charged in error please contact us at [email protected] and we'll be happy to look into it.
