Volunteer Policy
Desert Sky Archers strives to keep our costs down for our membership. We can only achieve this through our membership donating their time and hard work. Our policy is as follows:

  • Each family MUST volunteer 3 times at minimum. 1 volunteer time is equal to about 5 hours. Meaning you must volunteer for 4-5 hours to get 1 volunteer time
  •  Volunteering for tournaments will be broken up into times and each volunteer into a job that is comfortable for the volunteer.
  • Volunteering will be kept track to ensure everyone meets their volunteering time.
  • Families can opt out of volunteering under new membership level.
