Effective Spring of 2020, SWM Rec is implementing a volunteer policy that aligns with other not-for-profit sports leagues in Southwest Michigan.
Every child’s registration requires a volunteering commitment from a parent or legal guardian. Instead of volunteering, a parent or legal guardian can choose to pay a $40 opt-out fee at the time of registration.
Parents in the U3 division are exempt from volunteer duty.
If you are scheduled to volunteer and there is a conflict, you may send someone of legal age in your place to fulfill the responsibility.
If no one is available to take your place, you must notify the league via email at least 48 hours before your scheduled volunteering time, so your commitment can be rescheduled.
If a parent pledges to volunteer and neglects to fulfill their volunteer responsibility, SWM Rec will assess a $50 penalty to a player’s account.
If this occurs, the fee is added to a registrant’s soccer account. The child’s account balance must be paid in full before they are eligible to play soccer again.
