FEES AND DISCOUNTS:

FAMILY SERVICE FEE:

A Family Service Fee of $40 per FAMILY will be charged upon registration. The $40 fee will be refunded with the completion of at least one-hour minimum any time in the season of volunteer refund-specific service. This does NOT include Concession Stand duty selling items over the window during a child’s game. To review your volunteer positions, please go to the Registration Portal. In Step 1 (Parent Profile), scroll down to the 'CAN VOLUNTEER' drop-down tab. There you may select three volunteer options in order of your preference.

Families participating in the Mini-Martians U4 Program are EXEMPT from the Family Service Fee and will not charged the $40 upon registration. When registering, Mini-Martian parents should click on "Mini-Martians Parent" option under the 'CAN VOLUNTEER' dropdown tab for Volunteers, and list "Mini-Martians" for all three preferences.

The Family Service Fee is used to cover incidentals costs not provided for volunteerism by members, such as building or field maintenance. This fee is refundable to any member who volunteers for and completes a refund-specific position listed in Step 1 (Parent Update) of the registration. Once registration is completed, submitted, and all registration fees are paid, volunteers are contacted during the season by the MASC Board to provide opportunities to fulfill volunteer roles. Only one family member for a minimum of one full hour is required for the refund. Volunteers who fulfill the position during the FIRST HALF of the season (in the first 4-weeks) are refunded via mail after the fourth week of the season. Volunteers fulfilling the position during the SECOND HALF of season are refunded via mail upon completion of field clean-up day which concludes the last of the volunteer opportunities of the season. Only refund-specific positions as noted in the registration are eligible for refunds. Throughout the season, occasionally special opportunities open that are privy to that season, such as manning the tent at the MHY Harvest Fest for an hour. The MASC Board president will email the club members and invite any member who has not yet participated in a refund-specific position. All volunteers sign a confirmation sheet in te presence of a MASC Board member at the time of the event.

FAQ: TEAM CONCESSION STAND DUTY: Every team MUST provide ONE (1) representative each week for Concession Stand Duty by helping to prepare and sell concession items. This representative will serve for one half of that week's game. Serving in this capacity is not considered eligible for refund because it only fulfills a game half (22-24 minutes) and, rather than serving the club as a whole, only serves that particular team to ensure the window remains open during that game. Concession Stand Openers & Closers positions are a different position, and as they require more time and effort ARE eligible for a refund.

ADDITIONAL DISCOUNTS:

Additional discounts are offered for those who fulfill in goodwill the following appointed positions: Head Coaches, Assistant Coaches, Age Group Coordinators, and Board Members. This additional discount will be based on the highest discount of the volunteer positions for the highest registration fee of all registered children. It will be applied ONCE per same household family for one volunteer position regardless of how many children are registered or how many positions for which one has volunteered.

TRAVEL PROGRAM:

Board Members:......................................$25 (Discount) PLUS the $40 (Volunteer Fee)

Head Coaches & AGCs:........................$25 (Discount) PLUS the $40 (Volunteer Fee)

Assistant Coaches & Team Mgrs:.......$15 (Discount) PLUS the $40 (Volunteer Fee)

IN-HOUSE PROGRAM:

Board Members:......................................$25 (Discount) PLUS the $40 (Volunteer Fee)

Head Coaches & AGCs:........................$25 (Discount) PLUS the $40 (Volunteer Fee)

Assistant Coaches:.................................$15 (Discount) PLUS the $40 (Volunteer Fee)

NOTE:

All volunteers must be approved by an authorized Board member for their Family Registration Fee to be refunded. Refunds will be issued by check halfway through the season (at the end of the first 4-weeks) and at the end of the season.

Service as a Board Member, Coach, or Team Manager represents the most trusted positions within the Mars Area Soccer Club, and these positions have limited availability. As such, not everyone who volunteers for these positions will necessarily be selected.

NO PAY / NO PLAY POLICY:

Payment must be received prior to the first game of the season or players will not be permitted to practice or participate in games. Player passes will be withheld weekly until payment is submitted. Thank you in advance for making payment on time.

REFUNDS:

A full refund will be provided if a player withdraws from a program BEFORE PRACTICES BEGIN. If a player commits to a program but then willingly pulls out once practices have begun, no refund is provided. Once practices have begun, too many nonrefundable payments based upon headcount - player insurance, team fees, season budgets, etc. - have been made on behalf of that player which prevent the club from issuing a refund. If a player is injured and forced to leave a program during that player's first practice session, a partial refund minus insurance and a percentage of team fee may be considered at the discretion of the MASC Board.
