We Need Your Help!

Methacton United operates on a strictly volunteer basis and we always need your help to keep this organization. Although there is a lot of work involved in the operation of a soccer club, most of it is easy and fun. You will get to meet other community-minded people and will take away a great sense of satisfaction from your contribution, no matter how large or small. Methacton United is doing something postive for the children of the community, and doing it well.

To volunteer, or to learn more, please contact the appropriate Officer or Director responsible for the area in which you wish to help. All volunteers are subject to the clearance requirements detailed below.

General inquiries can be directed to info@methactonunited.org.

Volunteer Clearance Requirements

As of July 1, 2015, new child protection laws took effect in Pennsylvania that require any club volunteers in direct contact with children to have child abuse clearances and specific background checks—the same ones needed to volunteer in your child's school. Full information on the legislation and reporting requirements is available at:

Additionally, Methacton United is required to maintain copies of clearances for all volunteers. We must have this documentation in hand prior to the commencement of your volunteer activities. Simply put:

If your clearances are not on file,
you are not permitted on the field.

Specifically, all coaches, assistant coaches, trainers, and even parents that are helping out more than one time are required to have the clearances listed below.

  • Child Abuse History Clearance (link)
  • PA State Police Criminal Record Check (link)
  • Fingerprint-based FBI Federal Criminal History (link)
  • Affidavit of Compliance (link) This affidavit is only applicable in lieu of the FBI background check if you have lived in Pennsylvania continuously for the previous 10 years. See keepkidssafe.pa.gov for full requirements and information.

Copies of all documentation must be emailed to our Secretary and Risk Management Coordinator, John Larcinese, at secretary@methactonunited.org. Please indicate the position and program for which you have volunteered.
