Cash Call Policy
As per the SW Hockey Policies and Procedures SECTION 9.3, the cash-call is a dollar amount paid by the parent / legal guardian to the team in order to help fund the team budget. This amount may be returned by the end of the season; depending on the success and method of team fundraising.
Deadline: October 31st is the deadline for cash calls to be paid to the team.
Where a cash call is a financial hardship, the member should contact the Manager and/or Head Coach in private; where monthly payment arrangements can be made between October and December 1st; and/or through additional fundraising opportunities that the family can use to generate the funds. While payment arrangements are on a case-by-case basis, the aim should be to have the cash call paid to the team by December 1st.
- If an arrangement cannot be reached to assist the family with the financial hardship, the Team Manager can contact the Administrator to review other alternatives.
Funds that have not been spent by the end of the season (where Cash Calls were provided), are to be reimbursed to the parent / guardian who made the cash-call.
Important: Only up to the amount of the original cash-call can be returned. Under no circumstances are publicly raised funds (AGLC) permitted to be paid out to parents / guardians. Parents / Guardians are not to ‘make money’.
Cash Call Accountability
Members need to be accountable to their teams with regards to contributing to the team budget. Failure to comply with the Cash Call Policy may result in becoming a “Member not in Good Standing”; because team budget expectations are applicable to all families on the team.
End of Season
Any non-publicly raised funds remaining at the end of the hockey season should be distributed equally to the parents/guardians who made the cash-call (ONLY UP TO the amount of the cash call(s) that were respectively contributed). Families are NOT permitted to 'make money' from any team fundraising.
Under NO circumstances are publicly raised funds permitted to be paid to parents / guardians.
Contact the SW Treasurer for further guidance regarding any excess funds.
Contact the SW Administrator immediately for support with cash calls not being paid by family's.
