The Monona Grove Soccer Club requires the participation of its member families to help with the functions necessary for running the volunteer-led club. MGSC recognizes that all of its members have their own time priorities and constraints. It further recognizes that some families have the time and the desire to provide more volunteer hours than others and this is always welcome! To assist in keeping club costs low, each family is required to complete a total of 2 service hours during the entire season (fall & spring). The service hour requirements are per family, despite how many children a family has playing in the club.
Below is a list of volunteer opportunities that are most in need and that will fulfill a family’s volunteer obligation. Members interested in these options must commit to the entire season (fall & spring):
There will also be many other volunteer opportunities sent via email and posted on our social media pages prior to and during the soccer season. The volunteer service hours can be performed by any member of the family as long as the activity selected is appropriate for the age and maturity level of the person performing the activity.
Service Hour Deposit
During registration you will be asked to pay a $50 service hour deposit. This deposit will be refunded at the end of the soccer season. If volunteer hours are not fulfilled by the end of the season in June, the service hour deposit will go towards the MGSC Scholarship program. There will be no exceptions to this policy. Please allow until July 1 to receive the service hour deposit via the method you paid for your registration. There will be no pro-rated reimbursements.
Service Hour Buyout/Requirement
The service hours requirements outlined in this policy require a minimum of 2 service hours for each family. Alternatively, a family may choose to “buy-out” their volunteer obligation for $50. This is not intended as a way to fundraise for the club., but rather is an incentive for all families to contribute their time and talents for the benefit of all club members. Scholarship recipients are not able to exercise the buyout.
