2018-2019 VOLUNTEER REQUIREMENT FOR ALL FARMINGTON WRESTLING FAMILIES:
Farmington Wrestling relies heavily on volunteers to make our programs affordable, safe, and fun. For the 2018-2019 wrestling season, Farmington Wrestling, like many other local athletic programs will to collect Volunteer Fee Deposit Checks. Wrestling is the most affordable Farmington sport and we need your help to keep it that way! There will be many opportunities to help out and training will be provided. The goal is to not cash any checks, but rather provide meaningful opportunities for wrestling families to give back to the program and get to know one another.
A Volunteer Fee Deposit Check of $300 per family will be collected at the beginning of the wrestling season. Volunteer checks for families who fulfill the volunteer requirement will be destroyed at the conclusion of the season. Failure to fulfill the required volunteer hours will result in forfeiture of the Volunteer Fee Deposit and the checks will be cashed. Please note that no partial refunds will be made.
Volunteer Requirement: This year, Farmington Wrestling will be using tasks instead of hours to fulfill volunteer needs. Each task will typically consist of 2, 4, or 6 hour shifts working concessions, tournament preparation, or other wrestling program related activities.
Below is a matrix to determine number of tasks required based on the level and number of wrestlers your family has in the program.
|Participating Wrestlers||Required Tasks|
|One Tiny Tussler||1|
|Two Tiny Tusslers||2|
|One Pre-Elite or Higher||2|
|One Pre-Elite or Higher + One Tiny Tussler||3|
|One Pre-Elite or Higher + Two Tiny Tusslers||3|
|Two Pre-Elite’s or Higher + One Tiny Tussler||3|
|Two or more Pre-Elite’s or Higher||3|
Check Collection: Volunteer Deposit Fee Check collection methods will be communicated by the coaching staff at each level of participation. It is important to note that if the Volunteer Fee Deposit Check is not received by the communicated deadline your wrestler will not be permitted to practice or compete until the Volunteer Deposit Fee Check is turned in. For proper record keeping, please ensure that wrestler(s) first and last name that the volunteer check is written in the memo section of the check.
Volunteer Hours Tracking: Volunteer hours will be tracked by the Volunteer Coordinator, Jess Stevens. From time to time parents will be asked to help out, this is just part of being a sports parent. It is important to note that only tasks that are signed up for via the Farmington Wrestling online sign-up will be tracked.
Check Cashing: Families who have not fulfilled the volunteer requirement prior to the conclusion of the season will be notified by April 1st and checks will be cashed on or after May 1st. In the event of insufficient funds, Farmington Wrestling reserves the right to seek payment to cover such bank fees in addition to the check amount. Unfulfilled financial obligations will carry over to the next season and require settlement prior to participation in next season.
Farmington Wrestling would like to say THANK YOU in advance to our Tiger Wrestling Family for your time and commitment. You are making a difference by doing your part to keep Farmington Wrestling as affordable as possible!
