Volunteer Rewards

Volunteers are the success of Barrens Soccer Club! The club has established a program that rewards coaching volunteers for their help with refunded registration fees. Vouchers are requested by the Area Coordinators as a volunteer duty has been carried out.  The Treasurer will issue a refund check less a $5 handling fee.
