Concessions: This is a 2 hour shift in the concession stand serving customers and working with the cook staff. This is an easy task, and you will be shown what to do at the start of your shift. This is also a great way to meet other soccer families as they come to the window! Signup


Set-up: This person can show up before the games start to help get nets ready and set up flags, signs, and other items that are needed for Saturday games. Signup


Clean-up: Lots of families come through the fields each Saturday, and sometimes they don't leave with everything they sat down with. This person would walk the fields at the end of games on Saturday and dispose of any trash left behind and collect any items that need to be put in the lost and found. Signup


Field Marshal: This is a 2 hour shift on the fields. You will be assigned a field( or fields) to work, and you will be keeping an eye on the spectators to ensure they are following the rules (how close to the line to sit, etc), being respectful of the refs and coaches, and showing good sportsmanship. We will provide a basic outline of behaviors that are expected, and suggestions on how to handle different situations. Signup


Information: This is a 2 hour shift on the fields. When people don’t know where to go, or have a basic question, you are the one they will look for! We will give you a map of the fields, and a basic FAQ sheet, and tell where to direct people if you don’t know the answer to something. Signup


Uniform Sorting: At the start of each season we need to sort uniforms and put them into bags for each team. Many hands make light work for tasks like these. This is often a mid-week task.


Equipment Sorting: Like uniforms, we need to sort balls and other equipment into bags for each team. This is often a mid-week task.


End of Year Wrap Up: The last day of the season when we need help putting balls away, organizing left over uniforms, and emptying team bags. Signup
