Work Bond Policy
A $200 - $300 Work bond Fee is a component of registration for which each family is assessed. Each family is required to work four (4) support activities one (1) of which must GAME DAY concession stand. Successful completion of all Work bond assignments and the return of the uniforms/equipment are both required for a refund of your family’s Work bond at the end of the season or to roll it over to next season. All requests for Work Bond refunds must be received prior to the start of the following season. i.e. by 08/01/20 for the 2019 Season Work Bond. Refund requests must be made directly to the treasurer.
The Board will confirm that families fulfilled their prior season work bond requirement for everyone selecting the ROLL OVER option. After verification, if it is found that you did not completely fulfill this requirement, your account will be charged the work bond amount due for 2020.
You also have the option to "Buy Out" your work bond for a set amount. You then DO NOT have to work the required four (4) volunteer events. You ARE still required to participate in the Mandatory Raffle fundraiser and return all uniforms and equipment at the conclusion of the season.
Mandatory Raffle Fundraiser
The Dukes are a non-profit organization and are dependent upon our fundraising activities. We will have one mandatory fundraising activity for the season. Our annual calendar raffle requires our families to sell a minimum of 20 raffle tickets at a total value of $200.
All families to include all members of any coaching staff and board members are also required to sell the minimum of 20 raffle tickets.
You have the option of paying for your raffle tickets in advance during the registration process, when you receive them during the early part of our season, or after selling your tickets. All raffle ticket money is due by AUGUST 21, 2020.
Your child will not receive their game day uniform until all raffle ticket money is turned in.
Practice begins on Monday, August 3, 2020.
All outstanding paperwork and payments must be submitted prior to your child receiving equipment and/or practice uniforms.
