Q: I am unable to complete the volunteer hours. Is there a volunteer buyout option?
A: Yes. It is $150 fee. To add the fee select “yes” to the volunteer buyout option when you register your player. Full payment is due upon registration. 

Q: I plan to volunteer the required hours. Do I have to pay the volunteer buyout fee?
A: If you plan on volunteering during the season, select “no” to the volunteer buyout fee during registration and you will not be charged the $150 fee. In order to keep families accountable, you will be required to submit a $150 written check (no cash or debit/credit card payment accepted) to the volunteer coordinator prior to the start of season, due date to be determined. When the 8 hours per player, or 12 hours per family, of volunteer work is fulfilled and confirmed, your check will be returned.

Q: I paid the volunteer buyout fee during registration but I completed the volunteer hours. Can I get a refund for the volunteer buyout fee?
A: Yes. If you can prove that you worked the 8 hours per player or 12 hours per family you can request reimbursement for the volunteer buyout fee. Submit your hours to your team parent volunteer or the volunteer coordinator and refund for the volunteer buyout fee will be issued to the original form of payment. Not subject to the $25 refund fee.

Q: Can I work part of the volunteer hours and get a partial refund?
A: No. If ALL of the hours are not fulfilled by the end of the season the check will be deposited. Volunteer buyout fee will not be prorated for partial hours completed.

A: In the spring we will host a Scorekeeping Clinic, date and time TBD. It will teach you all the basics you need in order to be a scorekeeper.

Your team manager or team parent volunteer will sign off on your volunteer hours.
