2017-18 Volunteer Policy
This season SNSC is continuing our policy to help support the volunteering needs of our club. As many of you know, club fees only cover about half of the total cost of the program. We think that its important that we keep our programs affordable and accessible so we rely on fundraising events, grants and donations to cover the other half of program fees. This year all members will be required to pay a Volunteering Deposit which will be refunded when a certain number of volunteer credits are completed. If you completed your credit from last year, it will automatically roll over to the season, unless you request a payout.
The full program is outlined below. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Whitney at firstname.lastname@example.org
Deposits are calculated based on program. Each program has a slightly different deposit and volunteer credit requirement.
Prep level 1
All Prep Intro members will be responsible for a $50.00 deposit. If you or your family members complete 5 volunteer credits, this deposit will be paid back in full.
Prep level 2
All Prep Race members will be responsible for a $150.00 deposit. If you or your family members complete 15 volunteer credits, this deposit will be paid back in full.
All Devo members will be responsible for a $250.00 deposit. If you or your family members complete 25 volunteer credits, this deposit will be paid back in full.
All Comp members will be responsible for a $300.00 deposit. If you or your family members complete 30 volunteer credits, this deposit will be paid back in full.
SNSC will pay back deposits twice a year. Many of our volunteer opportunities are in the summer so we realize that some people may complete their volunteer requirement later in the year. Pay backs will take place in March and September each year. We will evaluate your volunteer hours in March and September and will pay back along the following policies:
Level One: If you meet 50% of your volunteer credit requirement, we will pay out 50% of your deposit
Level Two: If you meet 100% of your volunteer credit requirement, we will pay out 100% of your deposit
In order to receive a pay out or roll over, you must meet one of these two thresholds.
Important Details: If you do not meet the 50% threshold, you will lose your volunteer deposit. All deposits will first go towards any account balance or will roll over to next year's volunteer deposit. If you have completed 100% of your volunteer requirement by the end of March you will have the option to receive a pay out of your deposit.
The Volunteer calendar resets on August 31st each year.
If you have more than one athlete in our programs you will not have to pay two deposits. You will pay the deposit for your oldest athlete plus 25%. Your volunteer unit requirement will correspond. For example, if you have one athlete in Comp and one in Devo you will pay a deposit of $375 and will be responsible for 38 units. We will work with each family individually, so if you have questions, don't worry!
The following table gives an idea of the types of volunteer opportunities we have had in the past along with the approximate number of credits you would earn. We are adding more events this year and will provide an updated list of credits soon.
