Volunteers in our Club are very important. Without Volunteers our Club would simply not exist. Volunteers perform many different roles and provide our Club with varying goods and services. Our committee are all volunteers, as are our Junior & MiniRoo coaches, team managers etc. These individuals are also parents, employees and carry a variety of family responsibilities.
Croydon City Arrows Soccer Club relies on parent participation, which can vary from canteen duties to field duties. We ask you to be proactive and offer your assistance. It is vital for parents to participate, and accordingly parents should expect to be rostered a minimum of twice a season. This involvement will make a BIG difference to the way your Soccer Club is run and managed.
Duties May Include:
Parents can also assist in the canteen as rostered by your team manager. This is an important function required to assist the club to continue to provide facilities for players, by raising extra funds. It also helps us to keep your annual fees down.
Linesman – Parents maybe rostered to take a turn as Linesperson, unless one or two parents from the team volunteer to take on the job every week.
For home games – the team manager may require assistance in preparing the ground. This includes putting up and taking down goal nets, corner posts, and spectator lines. This will require arriving at the ground an extra half an hour early.
Volunteers to undertake line marking (usually on a Saturday) or setting up of game (Sunday, E.g. Goals flags etc.) are always needed and rosters may be drawn up to ensure this task is completed. By sharing the work everyone gets more out of the experience. If you have other skills you think may benefit the club then please let someone in the committee know or fill out the form at the bottom of the page.
WORKING WITH CHILDREN’S CHECK
State Government legislation has deemed it a requirement that individuals whose profession or social/sporting activity involves interaction with minors have to have a valid Working With Children check before being allowed to partake in that activity. If you are a volunteer (e.g. Team Manager) then a WWC certificate is required. Application is at no personal cost to any volunteers. Please visit the website (http://www.workingwithchildren.vic.gov.au) and follow the link to complete the online WWC form. Once you receive your valid Working With Children card, please contact the Secretary at email@example.com. It is a requirement of the Club that all cards are sighted and entered onto a register which is updated regularly.
