WE NEED YOUR HELP!
NSC is a non-profit organization run mainly by the parents of our players, although anyone can volunteer. We rely heavily on our parents to take on leadership roles including coaches, assistant coaches, managers, league directors, directors and president as well as other roles within the club. These volunteers work together to execute our club's mission of providing soccer to boys and girls in the community of Newtown. While the majority of our time is spent setting up and conducting business of the season, some of these volunteers also serve on our Board of Directors. The Board is responsible for the administration of the club's mission. As such, they meet monthly to execute club business. These meetings are usually conducted on the second Tuesday of each month and are open to all our members. We welcome your participation.
We could not run our club without the generous help of our parents. If you would like to donate some of your time to helping our club run smoothly for our youth soccer players, you are in the right place. If you'd like to learn more about what our volunteers do, read on ...
Our REC program has a need for capable, enthusiastic coaches to guide our recreational players. Soccer experience is helpful but not required. Although we utilize professional coaches in our Academy and Travel programs, we have a need for parent assistant coaches in these leagues as well. NSC provides volunteer coaches with coaching plans, practice drills as well as coaching clinics, so don't worry if you think you don't know enough about soccer to be a great coach. First and foremost we need willing and enthusiastic volunteers.
Each of our Travel soccer teams requires a manager. The Team Manager's basic responsibilities include:
- Scheduling games and facilitating tournament selection.
- Communicating club & team information to team members.
- Managing payments to referees and providing players passes at game time.
This is NSC's only fundraising event so it is a very important event for our club. Please contact the VP of Travel @ firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
How to Volunteer
All volunteers (Parent coaches, team managers, etc.) must must undergo a backround check sponsered by the Connecticut Junior Soccer Association (CJSA). The backround check is free and takes about 2 minutes. The backround check requirement applies to all NSC volunteers, coaches, referees and board members.
Join the NSC Board
Each year our entire membership is notified about our Annual General Meeting at which we begin the selection process for the board for the coming year. We encourage any member interested in becoming a new board member to attend the anual meeting and to contact any current board member who will be happy to answer any questions you may have about the election process. The board meets once a month throughout the year. The board meetings are generally open to all NSC members so we encourage you to attend one to find out more about participation.
