Do you offer Financial Aid?
Yes, we do offer Financial Aid to families that qualify. Application for Financial Aid is available within the 2020 registration.
Do you offer Payment Plans?
Yes, we do offer Payment Plans to anyone who registers. With an initial $50 down payment, the rest of the payments will be split up by month with the total amount due by 7/1/2020. Should you need additional time, we welcome you to fill out a financial aid application as part of your registration.
What is a volunteer deposit and why is it $200?
Each family is expected to volunteer 4 hours of their time per season. The "Deposit" is a post-dated check (not cashed) to be held by the organization until the end of the season. At that time, the check is either returned to you, if your family completed their 4 hours (tracked by the volunteer coordinator) or cashed if your family did NOT complete your 4 hours of volunteer time.
Didn't the volunteer deposit used to be $50 and paid with registration? Why the change?
Frankly, we need your help! Valley Wolfpack is a 100% volunteer ran organization and it requires many hands to keep things running smoothly. Each year we are finding it increasingly difficult to find sufficient volunteers to help during key events performing such duties as concessions, pep rally, ticket sales, merchandise sales, announcers, clock operators, chain gangs etc. Many positions go unfilled leaving the work of many to a very few which is inadequate and detrimental to all of us in the Wolfpack Family. We are hoping with an increased financial pull we are able to solicit the help we so desperately need.
