***Signup Process for the 2019 Season Participation Duties***

 

 

The Irondequoit Junior Eagles is a non-profit organization run solely by unpaid volunteers.  This allows parents or guardians to participate in a fun and exciting season.  In order to ensure the season, competitions and all games run smoothly, we require parent assistance for many critical in season roles.  In order to ensure this is completed, all families are required to pay a $50 deposit, per family. Each family will be required to fulfill 2-4 participating activities per season depending on overall participation for the season. Upon completion of the season when uniforms are turned back in, the $50 deposit will be refunded, or can be rolled over towards next season. Any missed participating responsibilities will result in full forfeiture of the participation deposit. No uniforms will be handed out until all registration and participation fee are paid in full.

Please note:  If you participate during your child’s game, it is very possible that you will not be able to watch your child cheer or play.  Parents may choose to participate during other team’s games.  Please do not bring children with you when you participate. All participants must be over the age of 18.  No children under the age of 18 will be allowed to fulfill any parent participant obligations.

It is your responsibility to check the web site, on a regular basis, as there may be revisions after the initial schedule is released, and know when you are scheduled.  If you do not fulfill your assigned job, your full deposit will be forfeited.  (Note:  Full deposits will be forfeited if you miss just one participation assignment).  You are also responsible for finding a replacement once the final scheduled is approved. This is not the responsibility of the Family Participation Coordinator, the Team Parent, the Coach or the Board of Directors.

Once you have paid your Registration in full you will receive a separate email directing you to the Participation Schedule where you will schedule yourself for 3 duties. Please review the participation positions list before selecting your 3 choices. If you do not complete this step at the close of Registration the Family Participation Coordinator will schedule you for whichever games/duties remain.


Thank you!
