Parent Volunteers Needed for Team Managers

We’re looking for parent volunteers to step up to the role of Team Manager for their athlete’s team this season. Team Managers responsibilities may include assisting coaches on competition day, organizing a team social, and helping put together a basket for the Basket Raffle fundraiser at the end of the season. Team Managers are typically eligible to receive a lift ticket at any away events so they may assist the coaches.

If you’re interested, please email Erin at [email protected].
