Many Volunteer Opportunities Available!!!


We have over 300 players in the KYSO Rec program this Spring & WE NEED YOU to help us make it a successful season for our young players. 

There are many Board positions available that require just a few hours commitment per month (more during the soccer seasons), plus a few volunteer openings that need just a few hours per year!   None of the Board positions operate completely independent of the others --  we collaborate to get things done so do not be worried that you do not know what to do.

VOLUNTEER COORDINATOR:  Patty Rodwick email address:  volunteer@kanelandyouthsoccer.com

Please check this page weekly as the season nears because specific volunteer  jobs will be listed and may change each week. Once you complete two volunteer hours you will receive a voucher to be redeemed for your $20 volunteer fee on the last two weekends of the season.

Two hours of volunteering by parents makes a HUGE difference to everyone who runs KYSO so please consider helping out this year!

Example volunteer roles include:

  • We need help with soccer tables and flags on October 13 and 20.  Times available are:  8:30-9:30, 9:30-10:30. 10:30-11:30, 11:30-12:30.  The 8:30-9:30 shift involves prepping the fields for games by putting out the flags and opening up the concession trailer.
  • Weekly trash pick-up after all games.  In case you haven't noticed, it is extremely windy out at the soccer fields and, therefore, we need to make sure there isn't trash on the ground.
