FAQ

Volunteer Requirements

Our organization is completely volunteer run. All families are required to donate a minimum of 8 hours (4 shifts) per player (capped off at 16 per immediate family). 

We ask that families commit to their volunteer shifts before Jamboree. Players may be benched if a family refuses to commit to shifts. 

PLEASE plan ahead for your volunteer shift. When volunteers don't show up, it creates extra work for everyone around. You will be required to reschedule missed hours, and your player may be benched the hours aren't scheduled in a timely manner. A fee of $25 per hour is assessed at the end of the season for hours that have not been completed. 

All volunteers must be 18 or over, with the exception of snack bar youth runners, who can be 12 and over.
