Volunteer Roles

WE WANT YOU!

Join the fun and help make MVSC better than ever!

For a complete description of all volunteer roles within our Development programs, please read further.

HEAD COACH

Head coaches are usually a team parent, and there may also be two parents who split the role of coaching.  For more information on coaching clinics, equipment, etc., please see our “Coaches” page.  Basic responsibilities include:

  • Attending Soccer FUNdamentals Coaching education sessions and Coaches Meeting in August
  • Assisting at practices (2x/week).  All training sessions will be run by our professional coaching staff, but volunteer coaches are encouraged to attend and assist.
  • Manage weekend games (usually one per weekend)
  • Manage Jamboree Games (3-4 games on final weekend of season.)
  • Communicate with parents (may be delegated to team parent)
  • Coaches must properly model MVSC’s Code of Conduct at all times.  

ASSISTANT COACH
Each team should have an assistant coach, usually a team parent.  The Assistant Coach is encouraged to satisfy the same coaching education required of the Coach, and may attend the mandatory coaches’ meeting in place of the Coach.  

The Assistant Coach should expect the same time commitments as the Coach, although shared accountability may allow for a distribution of that time commitment between both parties.  

Assistant Coaches may request to be paired with a specific Coach, or will be assigned to an age appropriate team as need requires.  Assistant Coaches must properly model our Code of Conduct at all times.

OTHER SPECIAL PROJECTS
MVSC occasionally undertakes special projects that require volunteer support.  This may come in the form of field improvement projects, preparation for a special club event, photographing games for the MVSC website, or support in fundraising endeavors.  If you'd like to be contacted by MVSC Leadership when volunteer opportunities arise, please sign up for special projects.

MVSC BOARD AND COMMITTEES
MVSC is a registered non-profit youth sports organization, largely managed and run by volunteers like you.  Our Board of Directors and Committee members are all parents in the Club, with children playing in our Recreational, Developmental, and/or Competitive soccer programs.  

MVSC is always happy to talk to individuals willing to make a commitment toward making our Club stronger.  Regardless of which program your child participates in, we are interested in parents who will consider the needs of each individual, and who will dedicate themselves to the management and improvement of our Club as a whole.  Whether on a committee or on the Board, we generally ask for a 2-3 year commitment, with the knowledge that time requirements vary for each role within the club.

If you are interested in learning more about leadership opportunities within MVSC, please send a brief statement of interest to information@mvsc.org.

*All families are required to pay a $50 Volunteer Fee at registration.  If you complete your volunteer commitment, the $50 will be refunded to you at the end of the season, usually by mid-November, either to your credit card or via check.   Families requesting financial aid are expected to volunteer in some capacity.
