Each family is required to sign up for 100 points per player up to a family maximum of 200 points. Each volunteer job is given a value, so you may need to sign up for more than one per child.
At the time of registration, you will confirm and agree to commit to a $200.00 volunteer deposit which will be applied if you have not completed your volunteer commitment(s) by the end of the regular season. Or, you can agree to provide a posted dated cheque which will be cashed if your volunteer commitment has not been achieved by end of the regular season. The post dated cheque is due at the first evaluation session for your child. 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 $200.00 - the system will automatically add this fee to your payment. It is the parent's responsibility to confirm that you have completed your volunteer commitment/requirement for the lacrosse season. Please discuss your responsibility and volunteer commitment with your child's team manager.
