Rush Policies

  1. Volunteer hours: Each family is required to contribute 4 total hours of volunteer time for their player. Families with more than one player are required to contribute 6 total hours of volunteer time. Many opportunities to volunteer will be offered throughout the year. Volunteer hours are valued at $30.00 each. Families pay for their volunteer hours upfront at registration (families with one player pay $120; families with more than one player pay $180). Refunds are issued in one hour increments ($30 at a time) and will be refunded before the end of the season.
  2. Auction requirements: The annual club auction is the primary fundraiser for the club. Each team is required to sell 6 auction tickets, and is required to contribute items for auction valued at a total of $300.00 (usually procured in 2 baskets valued at $150.00 each). Teams will receive 50% of the proceeds generated by their auction items.
  3. Raffle book: Each player is required to sell one raffle book (book of 10 tickets for $10 each) as part of the Club Raffle. If a player does not fulfill this requirement, Washington Rush will charge the balance of the raffle book to the player’s account. For families with more than one player in Washington Rush, the requirement is 1.5 books (15 tickets) per family.
  4. Transfers/Withdrawals: A player may withdraw or transfer only IN ACCORDANCE WITH WASHINGTON RUSH POLICIES, RCL RULES, NCYSA RULES, AND WYS RULES AND AFTER MEETING HIS/HER FINANCIAL OBLIGATIONS. If a player chooses to withdraw or transfer from the club an administrative fee of $50 will be added to the player's account. NO REFUNDS WILL BE GIVEN AND, AS EXPLAINED ABOVE, A PLAYER IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR ENTIRE FEE OBLIGATION (CLUB AND TEAM) BEFORE BEING RELEASED FROM THE CLUB. Players who sustain an injury during the season will not receive a refund on their player or team fees unless the injury keeps them off the field over 6 months and they provide a note from their physician. Exceptions to these rules are at the discretion of the board.
