Thank you for your interest in learning more about volunteering with the Carmel Dads’ Club. During the year, over 11,000 children participate in our various sport programs. We are organized and run almost entirely by volunteers from the families of our participants.
Families are asked to participate as a volunteer in one volunteer position each sport season. The requirement is only ONE volunteer position per family, not per child. (For example: a family with 3 children participating in sports only needs to work one volunteer position). Families are welcome to volunteer in multiple positions if they would like, but it is not required. Families must fulfill their volunteer requirement by selecting from on the following positions:
(Help create and manage your child's age division league)
(Only head coaching applies towards the volunteer requirement, not assistants)
| Concession Worker
(ONE 2-hour shift)
| Team Sponsor
(Sponsor your child's team)
CHOOSING TO OPT-OUT OF VOLUNTEERING
While we encourage everyone to share in the volunteer experience, we understand that not all families are able to volunteer due to other commitments or schedule conflicts. To accommodate this, families may opt out of volunteering by paying a $25.00 Volunteer fee. This payment can be made during registration or anytime during the season.
SELECTING YOUR VOLUNTEER ROLE
The process for selecting a volunteer position normally occurs during the sport registration process. Each sport season, when registering your child/children, you will be asked to make your family’s volunteer selection at that time. Again, the volunteer requirement is only ONE volunteer position per family during the sport season in which you are participating.
The volunteer requirement applies to families participating in Rec Leagues,Travel Leagues and KAP scholarship. If during the sport season your volunteer position/selection changes, please call the CDC office so that your records can be updated.
To be fair to all our families, if your family does not fulfill your selected volunteer obligation, you will be subject to a $50.00 fee that will be charged at the end of the season.
Your assistance and volunteer hours are greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance for your efforts in ensuring the Carmel Dads’ Club’s continued success in offering a positive and successful sporting experience for your children!
Below is a description of the each of the volunteer positions and what they involve.
