We know that there are a lot of questions when it comes to signing your athlete up for sports. We want to reduce that pain, so we have done our best to answer some of the most frequently asked questions.
Since the success of our organization is volunteer driven, it is a requirement to
complete four volunteer commitments per athlete, with a maximum of eight per
family (primarily fulfilled at home games, unless otherwise noted).
Prior to the start of the season, a commitment deposit is required that will be
returned to you at the end of the season, assuming all volunteer commitments
have been fulfilled.
A commitment deposit will be required that will also be returned to you at the end of the season if all commitments are completed.
