Financial Assistance
 
  • The Maverick Volleyball Club is committed to helping all athletes play volleyball. There are a few options for athletes and parents who require financial assistance including:

    1.    Payment Schedule Options

    The Club is flexible to a different payment schedule than what is set out for the team.  It can create a payment schedule that parents are more comfortable with, such as:

    ·       lower equal payments extended over a longer period (i.e. October - May vs. October to March); or

    ·       lump sum payments.

    If you are interested in exploring this option, please contact accounts@maverickvolleyball.cato discuss a payment schedule that meets your needs. It is important that your team treasurer is informed of this new schedule.

    2.  Subsidies/Foundation Options

    There are several community funds that are available to athletes that parents can apply for, including:

    A.  Maverick Athlete Benevolent Fund

    ·       Provides $500 per athlete involved in a competitive program and a maximum of $1000 for an athlete involved in a high performance program. This subsidy will be directed to athletes in need of financial assistance.

    ·       The funds are paid directly to the Maverick Club. The Club will redirect the funds to the team’s budget to offset the athlete’s fees.

    How do I apply?

    ·       Complete the Application Form  in either Word or PDF format and send it electronically to benfund@maverickvolleyball.ca before October 31st.  This is a confidential process.

    ·       If you have any questions, feel free to us at benfund@maverickvolleyball.ca.

    B.   Canadian Tire - Jumpstart Program

    ·       Provides a maximum amount of $250/athlete for families in need of financial support.

    ·       If a confirmation letter is required to verify an athlete’s registration in a Maverick Volleyball program, please contact benfund@maverickvolleyball.ca.

    D.  Their Opportunity

    ·         Provides funding for children who come from a total combined household income of $45,000 or less to enroll in sport and recreational activities. The parents’ tax assessment is required from the previous year.

    ·         Once that child is funded they must go out in the community and volunteer to “pay it forward” to their community.

    3.  Other Options:

     A)   Work at Young Mavs Camps and Classes (must be 15U and over)

    For athletes in the 15U or older teams, there may be additional space for assistant coaches to work for the Maverick Club's development programs (Young Mavs, camps, etc): 

    ·       Athlete works for $11.50/hr - $14/hr depending on level of experience

    ·       Rather than a salary being paid directly to the athlete, it is redirected to the team budget of the athlete.

    B)  Other Fundraising / Sponsorship Options

    • Host your own volleyball tournament:
      • Teams may choose to host their own tournament – either an independent tournament or an OVA tournament. This is a great opportunity to fundraise as well as do some team bonding!  There are options to do 50/50 tickets, silent auctions, draws and/or offer a canteen during the tournament. To inquire about hosting an OVA tournament, contact Sally Spack at sally.spack@maverickvolleyball.cato inquire about OVA tournament opportunities or to rent gym space for any other type of volleyball tournament.
        • Teams choosing to host a tournament canteen can approach companies to sponsor the food or provide in-kind donations to increase their profit. A template for a food and beverage donation letter can be modified to provide to potential sponsors (such as Costco, Metro or Loblaws, etc.)

    o   Solicit community businesses  for Team Sponsors:

    • Teams may acquire team sponsors to have funds directed to their team budget. A formal letter on Maverick’s letterhead should be provided to the sponsor. Logos/signage may be required based on the sponsor benefits as agreed with a potential sponsor. Please contact sponsorship@maverickvolleyball.cato discuss options and to provide a template letter.

    o   Consider other fundraising initiatives:

    • Request additional Mini Peel Sticker coupon books from Coach (2017)
    • Bottle drives;
    • Raffles;
    • Raking leaves in a neighborhood;
