Calgary Mako Water Polo - Casino Bond Cheque
As part of your child's registration with Calgary Mako Water Polo, you will be required to submit a $250 Casino Bond Cheque - dated November 2, 2018 (post dated approximately to the last day of your child's program). Please submit your child's Bond Cheque to your MAKO Register no later than 15 days after your child's registration.
(If you are paying for your child's registration by cheque as well, please enclose seperate cheques for the Registration and the Casino Bond. Do not combine these into one large cheque)
The single main reason for our program's reasonable cost structure is revenue earned from casino events. Every 18 months, Mako runs 2 days of casino. This 2016/2017 season, our club casino is on Nov 1- 2, 2018 at Deerfoot Inn and Casino, Calgary. Mako membership requires each family to send 1 volunteer to work a casino event. If your family is unable to provide a volunteer for our casino events, your $250 cheque will be cashed. If you are able to volunteer or send a representative, your cheque will be destroyed at the end of the season.

Calgary Mako Water Polo - Volunteer Commitments
Community water polo clubs are 100% volunteer run. Without the hours invested by parents, there would be no Mako club. There are a myriad of volunteer opportunities within the club. The most enjoyable are down on deck, helping to host games and tournaments for your athlete(s). Experienced Mako volunteers will assist you in learning to operate score keeping equipment and with pool deck set up. Mako club will also offer water polo 101 seminars to parents to help you understand the game and the referee calls.
The minimum requirement for family volunteers is 12 hours, we are always looking for more volunteers to help us. The more help we can get, the better the experience for your child. If you are interested in volunteering in addition to the previously stated commitments please contact us using the form below.
Parents please consider having your older children U16 and U19 assist with your families volunteer hours. There are several dates through Community League and Provincial Tournaments were there game schedule does not conflict with assisting with the score clock, game sheets and penalty officiating table. It's a great way for the kids to be invested in their sport.
