The Club as a not-for-profit organization depends on volunteers to help the Club run smoothly and to keep operating costs down. Whether you are a parent, a friend of a player, or just someone who has time and energy to contribute your help is always welcome. Some of the areas where you may be able to help include: fundraising, sponsorship, marketing, advertising, coaching, managing a team, organizing special events like the Club tournaments and festivals, accounting, webmaster, etc.
Volunteering consists of three (3) steps:
If you are interested in helping out we need you to register as a member of the Club, please register via the Club’s on-line registration system. If you already have a “Member” profile simply login and select “Volunteer” from the menu on the left side of the page. If you do not have a “Member Zone” account you will need to “SIGNUP” and create your profile. Please don’t create a second profile. Once you have created your profile simply login and select “Volunteer” from the menu on the left side of the page. Member Zone
Once you have completed your on-line registration you will need to complete and submit a Volunteer Screening Disclosure Form and submit it to the Club General Manager, Bryan Cook. The completed form must be emailed, mailed, or dropped off at the Club Office.
Once your Volunteer Application form is received and approved you will be contacted and instructed to pick up a letter which will allow you to get your police record check free of charge. Reference and Police checks are part of the process for volunteers that will be working directly with children. In addition to completing the application, you may also be required to attend an Interview Session with the Club’s Volunteer Screening Committee.
Team officials include; Coaches, Managers, Treasurers, Trainers etc. The office requires the following to be submitted prior to being added to OSA rosters:
- Volunteer Screening Disclosure Forms- to be completed once for the club
- Ontario Soccer Forms- completed and submitted for each season.
- Police Record Check (PRC) for Vulnerable Sector – PRC’s must be completed every 2 years. Receipts for PRC’s are accepted after applying, however official letters must be shown to the office.
All information collected during this process will remain confidential and will be used for screening purposes only.
If you have any questions regarding this form or the screening process, contact the Nepean Hotspurs’ office: firstname.lastname@example.org.
