Minor Box Volunteering:
Each family is required to sign up for 100 points per player (6-8 hours of volunteering, approx. depending on division)) up to a family maximum of 200 points - between 14-16 ours of volunteering). Each volunteer job is given a value, so you may have to sign up for more than 1 per child. If you sign up as a coach, manager for instance, then that would take care of your volunteering for two players as this position is worth 200 points.
If you do not wish to participate or are unable to volunteer, then you can pay the ‘non-volunteer fee‘ which is the early or late registration fee plus $200 - the system will automatically add this fee to your payment. If registration fees are paid by credit card, no cheques are required. If you pay by debit card, you must submit the jersey and volunteer deposit cheques. If the volunteering is not complete or if the jersey is not returned or is damaged, then the $200.00 (volunteer) or $100.00 (jersey) amount will be put through on your credit card (or in some cases where a cheque is provided, will be cashed).
