The West Seven Rams Football and Cheer Program is a volunteer-based organization and depend greatly on the commitment and sacrifice of many volunteers. We do not compensate any of our volunteers, including coaches, board members and team moms, yet they and many others devote a substantial amount of their time and energy to support our youth sports program. Parental involvement is mandatory and critical to our success. In addition to supporting and participating in our fundraising activities, we require that all parent/s volunteer at least four (4) hours of volunteer time and one (1) shift of concession stand duties during the season and 1) major event during this season assisting the organization or contribute $50.00 to WSRYC, to support the program. Although the monetary donation is greatly appreciated, your volunteer time is much more valuable. There are many opportunities and ways to contribute four hours of volunteer time and we have found that most families generously contribute more than the required four hours. Our policy for the concession stand and game day volunteer time will be to schedule you to work a game other than your childs (either prior to or after) so you can fully enjoy your childs game. Please be advised that failure to adhere to the terms of this contract will results in your child not being able to participate in the West Seven Rams Cheerleading and Football program. Each participating family acknowledges that they have read, understand and agree to the terms of this Volunteer Policy and Contract by signing below. You are responsible for signing up for volunteer time and submitting your Volunteer Time Tally Sheets to your childs head coach.
