Call for Volunteers - we need your help!

Updated October 12, 2018

It is great to have the fall season underway and have everyone out on the fields again. As always, we appreciate our families' commitment to making this soccer club the best youth sports organization in the area.

We are a club run by volunteers, and it takes many a hand to grow the organization and keep us successful season to season and year to year. As older children and their volunteer parents age out of the club, we rely on new volunteers to fill the vacated roles and this coming year is no different.

Our goal is to keep all volunteer roles as small and manageable as possible, because we value your time as much as you do. If you are interested in any of the following positions, or have any questions about the responsibilities or time commitment, please contact Cathy Alexander at secretary@methactonunited.org
