Team Based Fundraisers
Each team should plan to raise $1000 per season to help reduce the cost to players for League Fees, Ref Fees, Tournaments.  It is important that you deposit charitable donations with the Club.
Teams report $1000 success stories:
Mike’s Car Wash, team buys car wash tickets at a discount and sells at full price, keeping difference.  Ask Geisse for letter to Mike’s.
Pizza Make & Sell, team literally makes pizza’s at full kitchen and sells for profit.  Click here for more info:
Discount Card, sell $10 cards for discounts at area fast food and services.  Ask for more info.
Non Profit Group Programs: clean Speedway, Lucas Oil, Conseco, or man concessions at same and Klipsch Music Center.  Ask for more info.

USA of Indiana Play Fundraising Program: Lucas Oil Stadium Concession
Good news!  The USA of Indiana Team Fundraising program just added “Lucas Oil Stadium Concessions” as a great option for any team of 8 volunteers to raise about $400 or $500 or more in one shift to pay for team based fees (tournaments, league fees, and referee refs). Parents and players over 16 years old volunteer to sell concessions at Lucas Oil Stadium in exchange for a handsome percentage of sales!  It’s a wonderful opportunity for families to earn money to help keep soccer expenses reasonable.

USA of Indiana decided to work with Centerplate, the company that runs concessions at Lucas Oil Stadium and Convention Center.  There is a minimum number of USA of Indiana volunteers required to work each event.  Typically, USA of Indiana will need 9 to 12 volunteers per event/stand.  If demand is greater we can take on a second concession stand with an equal number of additional volunteers.  Volunteers must be at least 16 years old and must 21 years or older to sell alcohol.  For most events, Centerplate sells alcohol at every point of sale.  If you don’t wish to sell alcohol, USA of Indiana selected some events where alcohol is not sold, although these events are very limited.  (Percentage of sales is of course higher from alcohol sales.)

If you’re interested, please contact your team manager, let him/her know of your interest.  Many teams will pick one event and run a concession stand together. This is a great opportunity to raise money as a group and bond as a team.  If your team isn’t joining as a team, that’s OK.  You may volunteer for an event that works best for you.  All families interested please sign up at:

How does the money work for me?

The volunteers working each event share equally in 95% of the money raised.  The money is returned to each player in care of the team manager. The Club must retain 5% to help defray the cost of administering this program.  Centerplate will pay the Club and then the Club will send a check to the team in care of the team manager.  (We will make other arrangements for players in the Rec or Rec Plus programs.)

It’s expected the team manager will credit the participating player’s team fees first.  The player may elect to pay the player’s Club Tuition as well.  If you wish to pay Club Tuition, the Club will first deduct Club tuition before sending balance to Team Manager.

All must money be used to pay for Club or team based fees, i.e. tournaments, ref fees, league fees.  In no cases, may any money be given to any player.  Officially this is money earned by the non-profit Club and the Club using 100% of the money to administer the program and pay team based expenses.

How much will our group make?
The higher your group’s sales at the event; the more money your child earns.  The group will earn 10% of the sales for your stand at each event.  This money will be divided equally among each worker.  Get more info and register on the Volunteer Page.
