FEE REDUCTION OPPORTUNITIES

UNION FC OFFERS PARENTS OPPORTUNITIES TO EARN MONEY TOWARD THE COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH COMPETITIVE SOCCER.

As a sports and entertainment venue, Ovations provides Union FC parents openings to work in designated concession stands at Cal Expo.  Some of these events include:  Sacramento Republic games, California State Fair, special events/dances, etc. The duties are simple and generally involve dispensing alcoholic beverages and managing a smart cash register. Many Union FC parents have participated at various events and have reported a sense of camaraderie and teamwork, as they are also earning money for their children’s soccer. You are welcome to join the Ovations Union FC parents’ team, positions are available.

In order to qualify to work at these events you must meet the following requirements:

  • Participants must be at least 21 years old

  • Participants must have a valid driver’s license

Participants must pass the online food/alcohol certifications courses as follows:

  • Alcohol training certification:

 HOW DOES IT WORK?

Ovations will pay Union FC a percentage of the net profit from the event. The total club earnings are distributed evenly amongst the parents that worked the event. The amount each parent earns is then credited to your Blue Sombrero account. The tip obtained is evenly divided at the end of the event and it is yours to keep. The hourly rate earned varies depending on the total sales. In the past, parents have made $8.00 -$20.00 an hour and some Union FC accounts have been completely paid off with Ovations work.

 This program is always in need of Union FC parents so if you are interested, please contact Rudy Avila at rudedogavi@gmail.com(English and Spanish).
