Call for Volunteers: We Need Your Help!

November 19, 2017

As our Fall intramural and travel seasons wind down, we would like to thank you for another great season of soccer. It is your commitment to your children and our club that make Methacton United 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.

Please scroll through the list of positions below and contact the indicated person if you are able to donate your time to help our club!

Executive Council

Elections will be held at the November 27th coaches meeting.

Vice President, Travel Soccer

Responsible for development and execution of our travel soccer program, including the tryout process. Experience in the Methacton United travel program is strongly preferred. Estimated 1-2 hours per week, but significantly more during spring tryout period.

Our incumbent VP, Haven Hoilett, is interested in re-election. If you are interested, please contact Ralph Navarrete at president@methactonunited.org.

Secretary

Responsible for scheduling meetings, coordinating guest speakers, and recording/issuing minutes. Estimated less than 1 hour per week.

Our incumbent Secretary, John Larcinese, is interested in re-election. If you are interested, please contact Ralph Navarrete at president@methactonunited.org.

Treasurer

CRITICAL. Responsible for managing the finances of our club, which is a 401(c)(3) non-profit corporation. A background in accounting (CPA) or finance is preferred, but if you manage your household finances to the decimal place, this job should be no problem for you.

This position requires approximately 4 hours per week, primarily computer work that can be done during off-hours from home using Quickbooks Online and email. The required time is heaviest in during the fall travel season and lighter during the winter and spring seasons.

Our current Treasurer, Courtney May, has done a fantastic job of upgrading our systems and is stepping down after two years and will be available to transition to the new Treasurer. If you are interested, please contact Ralph Navarrete at president@methactonunited.org.


Other Volunteer Positions

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 positions below, please contact Ralph Navarrete at president@methactonunited.org.

Director, Fundraising

Actively work to solicit local businesses to sponsor intramural teams. We have an established program in place, but we need someone to execute and contact potential sponsors on our behalf. Less than 1-2 hours per week.

U8 Intramural Coordinators

Assist with management of roster creation and uniform distribution for the U8 program. Ideally, we will have one for the boys and one for the girls.

Planning is beginning now for the 2018 Valley Forge Cup, our own tournament on Columbus Day weekend. We need volunteers to help organize, plan, and execute next year's event!
