USA of Indiana works because its members regularly and robustly volunteer to operate all aspects of the Club.  The Club tracks Volunteer hours per player.  There is available a per season volunteer buy out for families not meeting the volunteer requirement.  The buyout may be paid before the season, during the season, or may be charged to the player’s account after the season.  Seasons are July through November and March through June.

Each Recreation player is expected to volunteer at least 3 hours during the season. 
The volunteer requirement includes all Recreation players ages 1-25, in any of the Club’s Recreation, Rec Plus, Soccer Tots, and additional programs.
