Introduction: How Volunteers Help Our Club Thrive

Without volunteers, our club would not be able to thrive.

We encourage you to find the time to help San Ramon FC as we strive to fulfill our mission of developing players, character, and community through soccer.  

Coaches and assistant coaches are vital to our recreational program and qualify for volunteer reimbursement.  

You can read more about it below. 

Other than coaching, we typically announce volunteer opportunities via email, with available spots filled on a first come, first serve basis.  

The types of volunteer opportunities vary, but often include activities related to tournaments, photo day, and special events like our Opening Day Carnival or Scholar Athlete Night.

Oh, and did we mention coaching?  

We love volunteer coaches!

Thank you to all of our volunteers, past, present and future!  

We appreciate your help and couldn't do it without you.

Upcoming Volunteer Opportunities

During the year, we send emails to families who registered a player in our club and expressed an interest in volunteering.  

The emails are sent periodically, as the need for volunteers arises.  

We may also post volunteer opportunities on this page, but the emails will always have the most up-to-date information.

If you'd like to receive emails about volunteer opportunities, please contact our office at 925-973-0535.

Upcoming Volunteer Opportunities:

August 19th - Opening Day Carnival

 

SRFC Volunteers

Overview

In order to receive your $125 volunteer deposit back, you must volunteer for a minimum of 4 hours during 2017.  When completing the registration process, please select jobs that interest you. Please select a number of volunteer jobs that interest you to make sure you get a chance to volunteer. Only selecting one option, limits the number of emails and opportunities you will have to volunteer.  You will then be added to the email distribution list for those specific jobs. You will receive emails when volunteers are needed and be given an opportunity to work a 4 hour shift.

You must complete your volunteer hours in 2017 to qualify for a refund for the current season.

The only volunteer hours that are team specific are – Head Coach, Assistant Coach, Team Manager/Parent or Team Treasurer (competitive or select only). All other volunteer hours must be devoted to club events or activities.  These refunds will be issued at the end of the season by December 31.  The head coach or manager will turn in a form for the entire team at the end of the season.  The office manager will send the required form to recreational / select coaches and competitive team managers in November to complete and return.

The volunteer deposit is only collected once per family, so you will only receive back one volunteer refund per family.

We do not collect a volunteer deposit for the U5-6 age groups, so refunds are not issued for coaches and team parents for these age groups.  However, if you coach or manage a U5/U6 team and paid the volunteer deposit for an older child, you qualify to get that deposit back.  Please complete the volunteer reimbursement form at the end of the season and return to the SRFC Office Manager for reimbursement.
