Ohio Galaxies FC Volunteer Policy



Club Volunteer Policy

The Ohio Galaxies Futbol Club is a non-profit volunteer based organization.  Our aim is to provide players with an athletic education environment which will promote the development of their soccer skills, foster leadership and sportsmanship while promoting progressively challenging competition with the aim of giving the players the athletic and problem-solving abilities that will benefit them throughout life. 

Ohio Galaxies FC recognizes the challenge for families to cover the cost of youth club sports.  Our club hosts two tournaments: The Ohio Galaxies FC Thanksgiving Showcase, The Ohio Galaxies FC Spring Showcases.  By hosting these tournaments we are able to help our families offset some the cost of club soccer, while also giving our players the opportunity to participate in quality tournament events in their own backyard without the additional cost of travel.  Our ability to offer these tournaments to our teams with no direct cost to the players is dependent on a volunteer commitment from OGFC players and their families. 

OGFC has put forth the following policy regarding volunteer requirements for each OGFC player and their family.  Volunteer shifts for the OGFC Showcase events are incorporated into this program.

  • Two volunteer shifts are required per family for the u15-u19 teams during the high school club seasonal year - November - May. 

 

  • OGFC volunteer shift sign-ups will be posted on the volunteer website at www.signupgenius.com

 

  • OGFC volunteer shifts will be posted approximately 2 weeks before each scheduled event

 

  • The 2 OGFC required volunteer shifts can be worked anytime throughout the club seasonal year at the OGFC Showcases or other Ohio Galaxies FC sponsored events. 

 

  • OGFC has the option of offering additional OGFC sponsored events during the calendar year which may be used to meet the required number of volunteer shifts per family 

 

  •  Volunteers must comply with age requirements detailed in the volunteer shift description

 

  • Volunteer shifts cancelled due to weather or event cancellation will not be credited as shifts worked.

 

  • Failure to fulfill the volunteer requirements set forth by the OGFC board will result in a player fee assessment of $25 for each shift not completed

The Ohio Galaxies FC board recognizes that players and their families may be interested in opportunities to earn fee credits to help offset player fees.   In recent years. we have offered credits through a variety of events.  Players and their family must first meet the OGFC volunteer requirement before they will be eligible to earn credits to be applied towards player fees.  

  • For example, each family must work 2 shifts at an OGFC sponsored event before credits can be applied to player fees.  

 

  • Once the player and his/her family have met their volunteer shift quota, any subsequent shifts worked at OGFC sponsored events will be applied as credits to the player’s account.  

 

  • OGFC shift sign-ups will be posted on the volunteer hub website

 

  • OGFC reserves the right to limit the number of fee credit shifts per player   

 

  • Shifts cancelled due to weather or event cancellation will not be credited to the player account

 

  • Volunteers must comply with age requirements detailed in the volunteer shift description. 

 

  • Credits earned after January will be credited to the next seasonal year  

 

  • OGFC has the option of offering additional OGFC and non-OGFC sponsored events during the calendar year which may be result in shifts available for player fee credits.
