Other volunteer roles
Canteen Volunteers. Each parent or member of an adult team will be asked to volunteer their time the Canteen for one or two days during the season. Each shift is only three hours. Volunteers will be asked to serve customers, cook the bbq and make sausage sandwiches and hamburgers. Canteen volunteering is organised on a team basis and is a great way to get know the parents of other members of your child’s team.
Ground set up. Each parent will also be asked to assist in setting up grounds one game of each season. This involves arriving early at the grounds for one day each season. You will put out the flags on the corners of the ground, erect gazebos and place seating for the team reserves and coaches.
Committee. The Club is run by a committee that includes president, vice-president, secretary, treasurer, registrar, canteen co-ordinator, sponsorship co-ordinator, marketing officer, representatives of the adults team and other ex-officio members.
The committee is always looking for some assistance. If you are able to help please contact the president or secretary
