Volunteer Coaching Discount

 

Volunteer Coaching Discount

Thank you for volunteering to be a head coach!  Our volunteers are very important to the youth leagues offered by SLARA.  Without your help, we would not be able to offer these wonderful opportunities to the community.  To help show our thanks, SLARA offers all those who volunteer and are selected to be a head coach a $25 partial refund on your child’s registration fee.

Here’s how it works!

·         At the time of registration, you will be prompted to sign up as a volunteer coach.  At this prompt, or when asked by the office staff if registering in person, select yes and get your name added to the list of volunteer head coaches.  Please note that only head coaches are eligible for the discount.

·         The amount of head coaches selected is dependent on the number of registrations received.  It is possible to sign up to head coach and not be chosen.  Coaches are chosen on a first come, first serve basis.

·         Once selected as a head coach, you must have your coaching paperwork completed and submitted to the office by the coach’s meeting.  If you fail to submit completed paperwork, you will not be eligible for the discounted rate.

·         You must attend the scheduled pre-season coach’s meeting, or make other arrangements to receive the information from the Sport Manager.

·         During the season, you must not miss more than two scheduled events. 

·         Return your signed-out coach’s bag at the end of the season.

·         If the above requirements have been met, you will receive a $25 partial refund for your child’s registration at the conclusion of the season.
