The operation of our Club relies on parents volunteering to assist. Part of the registration process requires those parents who have elected to pay the standard registration fee (as opposed to the non-volunteer registration fee) to complete a Volunteer Declaration form which requires not less than volunteering on four occasions per child throughout the season, via the sign up icon on the homepage.
The Volunteer Declaration Form needs to be completed with your volunteering commitments and will include an authority requiring your credit card details.
Failure to turn up for your nominated duty will serve as an authority for the Club to deduct your credit card with a charge (currently set at $25.00) per occurrence. Any shortfall in your volunteering obligations (4 per child), revealed at our end of season audit, will incur a $25 charge per failure to attend e.g. if you only fulfil 2 of your 4 obligations your credit card will be charged $50.
Both this Volunteer Declaration form and a printout of your volunteer commitments (via the Volunteer link below) must be completed prior to attending one of our Registration Collection Days. To save time, you can upload your completed form here prior to Registration Collection Day.
There are 4 competition nights each season, each requiring more than double the usual number of volunteers to assist. Only volunteers are allowed on the oval on Competition Nights, so if you wish to watch your child compete you must volunteer.
2019/2020 Competition Night dates:
28 October 2019
11 November 2019
3 February 2020
2 March 2020
As a result, Tiny Tots parents are not required to volunteer as age helpers in any other age group and pay reduced registration fees.
Volunteering requirements for the season do not include the additional duties required if your child(ren) qualify for Championship events like Zone or State Relays. For these events, there will be a separate duty roster for the weekends they are conducted. MLA is required to provide proportionate support to all other Centres that compete, so this means that all Championship families are required to do duties for Championship events.
