The Wilbraham Soccer Club (WSC) strives to provide a competitive, challenging and affordable travel soccer program for the community. In order to do that and keep our costs down, we need to implement a performance bond. We have found that the same parents volunteer over and over, and in order to keep the program vibrant, we need to spread the load either through increased volunteer participation or paid services. Therefore, in addition to registration fees the WSC is requiring $25.00 per family or 2 hours of work for the program.
We want to be clear: we don't want your money; we want your participation! When you register on-line you will be asked to enter volunteer information or to opt-out. If you chose to opt-out $25 will be added to your registration fee. Conversely by agreeing to volunteer 2 hours of time, in any of the possible capacities, from any family member your $25 fee will be on hold until that time in which you complete your commitment and your fee is waived. If for some reason you do not complete the commitment your next season’s registration will how a beginning balance due of $25.
This is not meant to be a hardship or barrier to participation. We understand that every family faces unique challenges and if this commitment is a concern, please contact Shawn Lawrence, WSC's Registrar and Volunteer Coordinator. No child will be denied access to the soccer program because of this performance bond. However, it is our goal to increase parental involvement in our soccer program. See below for ideas on how to complete your 2 hours of service. If you have an idea that is not listed, please let Shawn know! --Wilbraham Soccer Club Board of Directors Wilbraham Soccer Club Volunteer Opportunities: Soccer skills are not necessary to help our children and our Soccer Club!
