Volunteer Information - Work Bond Program

Please note that this is for the Fall 2017 and Spring 2018 Season

A work bond program is a program where each parent submits an additional fee to the league upon registration. After a predetermined number of volunteering hours have been met, the family is returned this fee.

Due to the lack of volunteers in years past, the Freehold Soccer League Board has decided to implement a work bond program for both the Travel and Recreation Programs.  Most of the other clubs across the State of New Jersey have a work bond program, and we have tried to avoid it but our organization is only as good as its volunteers.  We are finding it more difficult every year to get people to volunteer their time with essential functions such as field lining, setting up / removing nets, coaching and most importantly helping with our tournaments and fall/spring opening and closing ceremonies.  The tournaments are Freehold Soccer League's single most important fundraiser, which helps the league to keep its general fees lower as well as offer you more for your money.  We need the help from the league's parents to continue with the success of your league's soccer programs.

You may choose not to volunteer and to forfeit your deposit but Freehold Soccer League certainly hopes that you choose to provide assistance to the Club!

There will be many ways in which parents can volunteer their time to recuperate their work bond. We are hoping that everyone will assist the club with their time and therefore no one will surrender their work bond.

 Majority of the ways to recuperate your work bond will include:

  • Head Coach - meets full requirement
  • Assistant Coaches (max 2 per team) - meets full requirement
  • Division Coordinator - meets full requirement
  • Team Parent/Treasurer/Manager - meets full requirement (one per each team)
  • Tournament Committee - meets full requirement
  • Recreation Picture Day Coordinator
  • Field Marshall
  • Field Maintenance (Goal setup and removal)
  • Tournament Volunteers (various functions include but not limited to; registration, souvenirs, raffle, concessions, field maintenance, garbage removal, parking, etc.)

Please help make YOUR soccer club successful!!

It is the volunteer’s responsibility to properly document the hours you have given to the Club. Upon completion of your obligation, you must have your time sheet validated by your team's Head Coach or Manager.  DO NOT HAND IN YOUR COMPLETED WORK BOND TIMESHEET TO YOUR TEAM'S COACH, MANAGER OR TEAM PARENT.  You must turn in your completed, signed work bond sheet at either a monthly general membership meeting, by email or by mailing it to: Freehold Soccer League, P.O. Box 653, Freehold, NJ 07728

Completed work bond forms are due no later than November 15, 2017 (Fall Recreation Season) and July 1, 2018 for the Travel and Spring Recreation Programs. If you fail to submit your completed work bond form by this date or fail to complete your work bond assignment, you will forfeit your work bond to the FSL.  No exceptions will be made.  Work bonds will not be carried over to the following season.
