USA of Indiana Player Fundraising Program: Lucas Oil Stadium Concession
The USA of Indiana Fundraising program offers “Lucas Oil Stadium Concessions” as a good option for a family to raise money to help pay for Club tuition and team based fees. Parents and players over 16 years old volunteer to sell concessions at Lucas Oil Stadium in exchange for a percentage of sales. It’s a good opportunity for families to earn money to help keep soccer expenses reasonable. See Volunteer page to register.
There is a minimum number of USA of Indiana volunteers required to work each event. Typically, USA of Indiana will need 9 to 10 volunteers per event/stand. Volunteers must be at least 16 years old and must 21 years or older to sell alcohol.
How does the money work for me?
Once Centerplate pays USA of Indiana, the Club will credit the amount earned in player’s Club Tuition in the player’s Blue Sombrero account. All money must be used to pay for Club tuition or team based fees, i.e. tournaments, ref fees, league fees. If a player has a credit balance after all Club tuition and team based fees are paid, a check will be issued in June for the credit balance or a player may opt to apply the amount as a credit to next year’s tuition.
How much will I make?
Centerplate pays $10/hour. In the past, if the stand didn’t have shortages, most volunteers earned $80 for an 8 hour shift. Bankers are paid $20 additional for the entire shift.
Mandatory Training Meeting
First sign up on the volunteer page and then you must attend this informative meeting. The Frontline Training Quiz is available online to have completed by the meeting. Please bring a copy of your completed Quiz Sheet. This will help speed up the process. You may get a copy of this quiz at the meeting if not completed beforehand. You may find a copy of the quiz at:
If you are 21 years + we strongly encourage you to obtain your Volunteer NFP liquor permit. You must also have a Valid Driver’s License. You can get this permit at this site: http://www.in.gov/atc/2641.htm
This permit is valid for 2 years and you pay the reasonable, associated fee. We must have at least 50% of our volunteers at each event to have this license. Those with the Volunteer Liquor Permit will also have priority over those who do not. You must have this to handle and sell alcohol at all Centerplate/ Lucas events. You must also complete TIPS training.
If you sign up for events, you are committed to working those events. You must give at least 2 weeks notice if you cannot work an event. Failure to do so results in your name being taken off of the Lucas Volunteer roster and a possible $75 charge to your player account. When you sign up to work an event and do not show up, it affects everyone in the group not making maximum sales and puts the entire program at risk.
If you’re interested, please contact Jessica.Medeiros@indy.gov This is a good opportunity to raise money as a group and bond as a team. Each volunteer please register: http://unitedsoccerallianceindiana.org/aboutus/volunteer/
