My name is Kindra Miller and I am the Volunteer Coordinator for the Vista Jr Eagles Football and Cheer Program. I know we have several new families this year, so WELCOME!!! This email should contain everything you need to know about the mandatory volunteer hours. Please read it thoroughly! The sign up website (ivolunteer) is open for Jamboree and Opening Day Volunteers. Regular Season Volunteer hours will be released withing the next few weeks. The program’s success is 100% contingent on the service of volunteers, so, thank you VERY much in advance for your assistance! For those that are new to the program, here’s a little fun fact for you: it takes approximately 130 volunteer hours to fully staff a home game day.
All families must sign up for 14 volunteer hours for one athlete, families with two or more athletes, must volunteer for a minimum of 20 hours. Your hours are automatically fulfilled if you are a board member, coach, assistant coach, or team mom/parent. Families of Mascots will be responsible for 6 hours of volunteer hours.
This year, if a parent/family is interested in buying out their volunteer hours to support our feeder program athletes (Vista Del Lago HS athletes). Each shift is 2 hours ($40 buy-out per shift). Please contact me if you intend to buy out volunteer hours. .
If you are a no show to a scheduled shift, you will be fined $30 for every hour ($60 per 2 hour shift) and your athlete is benched until you pay. You must be at your shift (already checked-in) 10 minutes prior to your start time (except any game day field/concessions/store set up shifts). Once you arrive, check in immediately at the gate, and sign-in for your scheduled shift (there will be a binder at the front gate table).
To sign up for volunteer hours, go to http://fvjreagles.ivolunteer.com. To sign-up for a job, you must press "volunteer", wait for the email back and then CONFIRM, if you do not confirm another volunteer can take that shift. Repeat until you have signed up for all of your jobs (if you do not get an email back within a minute check your junk mail). You are not signed up for this job until it is confirmed.
Thank you for your time and commitment to the Jr. Eagles Program, and GOOOO Eagles!!!!
Jr. Eagles Volunteer Coordinator
