EBU Volunteer Update – 6/2/20

Thank you to the many families that have completed thousands of hours of work on behalf of our players, teams, and the club this year.  We hope that you recognize the importance of each and every job that was undertaken.

The cancellation of the spring season has brought about a number of questions about outstanding volunteer deposit refunds. Families that have not yet been reimbursed have been emailed with details about how that deposit can still be refunded. One key change that has been made to the normal volunteer refund policy for spring 2020 is that families can earn their refund by completing one job per family as opposed to having to do a job for each player. We recognize that it may seem strange that we still need volunteers even though the spring season was cancelled, however we still have a soccer park and fields to maintain throughout the summer as well as tryouts to conduct and other annual summer maintenance tasks that must occur.

Current signups will be posted at https://www.elmbrookunited.com/volunteers/. There will be opportunities provided at all different times of the day and on different days of the week, all the way through the end of July. Some of the opportunities will allow you to work alone while others will be in responsibly-sized groups allowing social distancing. We will also provide specifics in terms of masks and other sanitary considerations with each signup.

Upon completion of your qualifying job, your deposit will be refunded to the credit card that you used for your 2019-2020 registration.

If your plans have changed and you wish to opt-out of receiving your volunteer deposit back, please email Christine Keyes at [email protected] and she will make note of it on your record.

Thank you again for your time. We could not provide the quality soccer experience that we do without the help of each and every one of you.
