Volunteers

Northside Soccer is run by volunteers, and therefore as a minimum, each
family group is asked to support the soccer program by volunteering for one
position each soccer season. If all parents participate, the soccer program
will continue to operate smoothly and efficiently. Most of the volunteer
positions require only a small time commitment. Coaching and team manager
positions are the most important positions to be filled, and require about 2
to 3 hours per week. We especially need more women to help coach our girls'
teams.

There are always a number of important and vacant committee positions to be filled for the upcoming season. A technical knowledge of soccer is not necessary for any of these positions. If you would be interested in being an Age Group Coordinator or any of the other positions available on our Contacts web page. Please send us an email for more information.

Volunteer Requirements

Northside Volunteer Deposit of $125.00 is required for each family. If you
are paying by cheque, please make payable to Northside Soccer.  Each
volunteer role works towards a credit towards your deposit.  When your
credits reach 125, your deposit will be refunded.  For those who do  not
reach the credit limit, a partial refund will be processed at the end of the
season.

Please note:

  • Do not wait to be contacted for helping out, contact the coordinator
    for your volunteer position.
  • If you cannot meet your volunteer commitments, it is your
    responsibility to find a replacement for the times you are needed.

Please remember that Northside Soccer is run entirely by volunteers. Your
contribution is needed to help keep our program running smoothly for
everyone. The more people that actively contribute, the less time will be
needed for volunteering and the better our program will be.
