Volunteering at Prospect Lake Soccer Club
Prospect Lake Soccer Club is a non-profit association run by volunteers. With volunteers participating in Executive positions, regular team activities & club functions, our Club is able to be successful. We could not manage without our members actively assisting in club activities during the season.
Here are some of the ways that you can earn your volunteer hours.
Get involved with your club and assist in setting the direction. All Board Members are automically exempted from the volunteer policy. No need to wait for an AGM, reach out the Board Member today if you’re interested.
Coaches, Asst coaches, Managers
Again, these position are exempt from the volunteer policy. It doesn’t happen often but if you coach a team that you don’t have a child on, your adult registration is free.
Team Managers coordinate the team uniforms and are the communicators of the team, advising families of games and any changes in the schedule.
Team Volunteer Coordinators
Team Volunteer Coordinators communicate parent volunteer hours to the Volunteer Coordinator every month.
