Major Fundraising Activities and Major Fund Accounts
Bottle drives, silent auctions and grocery voucher sales are some of the many fundraisers that can be organized by individual teams. Teams must obtain approval from the SWU Board prior to beginning any fundraising activity. This will allow the club to make sure that conflicts and duplication of efforts do not occur. In some cases a provincial license may be required.
Funds received from major fundraising activities must be submitted immediately to the Club. The Club will then issue a receipt for the funds received and the funds will be placed in an individual bank account (Major Fund Account) under the Club's name (for use by the team). These funds will be distributed back to the team upon request with appropriate supporting documentation.
Teams must complete and submit a Fundraising Approval Request Form prior to the activity.Forms are available from your team manager.
Are Program Fees Refundable?
Fees are NON-REFUNDABLE after the first month of registration. Prorated refunds for injured players may be given consideration provided the request is within 3 months of registration.
