Member Commitments

The Spartans Track and Field Club funds its program through fees as well as funds generated from casinos and bingos.  The success of our club – and our athletes depends on the willingness of parents to volunteer.  To support the programs, the Spartans requires each member or their parent to work:

  • one casino approximately every 18 months
  • three track meet shifts per year (approximately 4 hours per shift – no experience required) or
  • to volunteer for a position on the Spartans Board or
  • to volunteer assistance for our media (photographs, videos) at track meets (any training required will be provided prior to the meet) or
  • to assist as a chaperone at out of town meets and/or a track camp

A one-time Volunteer Commitment Deposit (VCD) of $200 is charged to each full-year athlete.  This deposit is returned upon withdrawal from the club if volunteer commitments are fulfilled.  Members will be charged a fine against their VCD if commitments are not fulfilled.
