Volunteers

picture19Blizzard relies on volunteers to step forward with their time and energy so that our Club can offer a high-quality soccer program at a reasonable cost. There are many opportunities for parents to volunteer with the Club and a technical knowledge is not required for most positions.

At the time of registration, Blizzard collects a $100 volunteer deposit, then parents choose a position (from the list below) they would like to help with. Once your family has taken on a volunteer position, the deposit will be refunded during the season.

Although, all teams require volunteers who contribute at various levels to support the team activities, only those volunteer positions outlined below will qualify for a refund of a volunteer deposit.
