Volunteers, in any capacity, are always welcome whether it's a season-long commitment (i.e., coach) or a time-limited activity (i.e., field lining).
Coaching: CMRC Soccer continues to develop/identify materials for new and seasoned coaches alike (e.g., sample practices, patch/stat tracking forms). We have a lot of seasoned coaches who are more than happy to answer questions and provide resources/guidance.
Some of our new coaches choose to be paired with coaches who have a season or two of experience; others start as head coaches their first season. I hold a coaches meeting prior to the start of each season to introduce coaches, handout equipment, answer questions, and get folks acclimated.
Field Maintenance: Parents may volunteer to line the playing fields and/or mow the fields. See the video below for a brief demo on how to operate the field liner. Generally speaking, most families only line the fields once during the entire season - about an hour total for the season.
All persons volunteering to mow MUST attend a brief safety demonstration prior to operating the mowers. Mowing could take anywhere from 2-3 hours and is generally done on a weekly basis throughout the entire season.
Concession Stand: Parents may volunteer to run the concession stand at various points throughout the season - usually during a portion of your child's home game. This entails little more than processing cash purchases; training is provided by the concession stand manager. The time commitment is about an hour and only has to be done once per season.
Field Day: This event serves as the informal kick-off for each season. Coaches and parents gather to establsih the various fields located both at Green Hill Park and across the street at CMES. While this is usually a 6-7 hour day, 2 hour time slots are alloted so parents can choose their desired time slot, volunteer, and go about the rest of their day.
**NOTE: After all volunteers have been assigned, additional families will be assigned across the various activities based on need.
