All of our events are put on by our hard working member-athletes, parents and community; our volunteers. We estimate that our community and athletic events require over 10,000 volunteer hours each year. Much of the success of the SSWSC is a result of many hours of help offered by dedicated parents and supporters who generously give of their time and talents to help support the SSWSC and athletes in many ways. We appreciate your support!
If you are not a member of the SSWSC but wish to volunteer to help support our events, thank you! You can sign up for events in the same way as members, and our volunteer coordinators will contact you.
Member/Family Volunteers – Work Deposits
Each family pays a “work deposit” based on the program that their child participates in. Families with multiple children only pay the work deposit for the child whose program has the largest work deposit. The work deposit varies based on the volunteer demands for each program. As families “volunteer” for the SSWSC they can receive a refund of their deposit for each shift worked. Each family will be assigned a number of points that coincides with the amount paid ($600 = 600 points). Each time a family volunteers for a shift their account will be credited for the number of points associated with the shift (generally 15 points per hour or more, depending on the job). When all points are worked off, or on April 30, the family’s account will be credited for the number of points earned in the form of dollars. Families are only eligible for a refund up to the total amount of work deposit paid. Credits can be donated back to the club, be used to offset the costs of athlete programs/travel, or be refunded directly to the family. Once all credit hours have been worked off, families may earn comp lift ticket vouchers at Steamboat Resort for the current season by working certain jobs.
In lieu of paying and working off a work deposit, families may elect to make a charitable contribution to the SSWSC Foundation in an amount of at least 150% of the applicable work deposit, and will not be entered in the work deposit program. Look for instructions on this when registering.
