As Almaden Soccer is run largely by the support of volunteers, each family’s service is instrumental in ensuring a fun and successful soccer experience for Almaden youth.
Every family is required to perform a minimum of 4 hours of league-designated volunteer service if they have at least one child participating in one of these programs: Fall Recreation, Spring 4v4 Microsoccer, or Almaden FC. Alternatively, families may pay a $125 buy-out fee. The volunteer requirement is per family per calendar year.
If a family does not fulfill its volunteer obligation and has not paid the buy-out, they will be charged the $125 buy-out and next season’s buy-out fee, in advance, at the next registration.
Our volunteer requirement can be met by performing a special role, or by performing work shifts as a league Hourly Volunteer. The following roles (and only these roles) will satisfy the league’s volunteer requirement for the season:
If you are not signed up in a team leadership position, you must meet your volunteer requirement by performing shifts as an Hourly Volunteer. All league volunteer shifts will be posted on the i-Volunteer online sign up tool, and will be filled first-come first-served. These shifts will usually be in 2-hour increments, and therefore you must complete 2 shifts to satisfy your family’s requirement. Only shifts that are posted on the i-Volunteer website will qualify as league service counted towards your volunteer requirement. Examples of Hourly Volunteer shifts include, but are not limited to the following:
The selection of volunteer activities during online registration indicates only that you are offering to or are interested in performing that type of volunteer service, not that you are ‘confirmed’ for that activity. ALL volunteer services must be confirmed in advance through an appropriate Almaden Soccer Board Member in order to receive volunteer credit. Volunteer buy-out fees are non-refundable unless you pay the buy-out fee during registration then later are approved in a Board appointed role or a League-designated team role.
Our soccer organization runs largely on the time, effort and TALENT of our volunteers. We appreciate all you do!
Almaden Soccer uses the i-Volunteer system to track and coordinate our volunteer needs. Please visit the link on your left to sign-up for your volunteer shift(s) today.
