Looking at the website, he seems to be the fundraising king. Is a portion of his salary tied into how much monies the kids and their parents collect?

It was their stupid idea to conduct a "club raffle", and then a more brilliant idea to charge their own members a "garage sale rental fee".
club raffles happen in every club. Its not like its the first time a club ever does a raffle. If one parent thinks "oh im not going to sell any tickets" imagine if 2-3 kids parents decide to do that from each team?
it could be a great loss money wise for the raffle. Its only common sense, if you don't sell all of the tickets that you had, in the 2 months or more they had to sell them. Then you pay the remaining value. Im not even a parent and I understand it.

The club had every opportunity to sell raffle tickets at the West Pines Tournament no?

Parents do not have to pay it is illegal for a 501-3c to "force" anyone to fund raise for a non profit. I am laughing at the club if they are gonna gets parents to pay.

If west pines can legally charge me $100 for not selling all my raffle tickets and that's a big if, they better provide me with $100 worth of raffle tickets after they charge me!

well that is the point, they dont actually expect 90% of the families to sell tickets, but to but the tickets themselves, a not so hidden fee. The garage sale on the other hand is a laugher. Saw they were dropping prices for a booth, not much interest there I expect.

All clubs have fundraisers
The question u should be asking is what is wp going to do with the funds they receive for the raffle
Stop complaining
Go cheer for your kid

Parents should not be FORCED to fund raise for another team. Supposedly the money raised goes to u16 and u17 to enter tournaments. If the u16/u17 want to enter tournaments they should fund raise the $ needed. Why should all parents and players be working for them? Last year the U16 girls didn't even sell their allotted tickets yet got more than $6000 from the rest of our hard work. This is a fact shared by a parent on last yrs team, how is that right?

U12 boys raised enough $ on their own to go to Columbia. This is how it should be!!

If WP wants these teams to go to these tournaments maybe they should fund the trip not do it on the backs of the rest of the players and parents.
