Bingos and Casinos
The success of the Wild Water Polo club and the success of our athletes rely on the contributions of our parent volunteers. Both our high-caliber coaches and the training pool facilities are expensive. We chose to continue program using these high-quality coaches and facilities to provide our athletes with the best opportunities possible. Club programs are funded through fees and revenue generated by volunteering at bingo associations and casinos. Club programs, teams, communications, community league and provincial league are heavily supported and sustained by the parent volunteers.
Families who do not fulfill their Bingo or Casino credits will have their account set to “not in good standing” with Wild, making the athletes ineligible to register for any water polo teams until their commitment is met.
Bingo Volunteer Credits Requirement
Each Family registered with Wild is required to fulfill bingo volunteer credits. Bingo requirements per family for athletes in the team age categories are as follows:
|Team||Volunteer Requirement||Volunteer Credits||Per 4-month session|
|10U*||8 hours||2 credits||4 hours|
|12U||16 hours||4 credits|
|14U||16 hours||4 credits|
|18U||16 hours||4 credits|
|Single Shift||4 hours||1 credit|
|Double Shift||8 hours||2 credits|
Bingo volunteer requirements align with the eldest athlete in the family.
For example, if your family has two athletes registered with one in 10U and the other in 14U, you will be required to fulfill volunteer requirements for 14U, i.e. 16 hours / 4 credits.

Casino dates are assigned approximately every 18 months, usually two back-to-back dates. It is imperative to fulfill the shift you signed up for. Casino adds significant revenue to our club. If our club does not fulfill the dates assigned, we run the risk of losing our place on the casino rotation.
