Why Volunteer?

As with any community or youth sports organization, our club absolutely depends on the time contributions of volunteers. The amount of time and energy required of you individually is really up to you.

There are so many ways to help out:

  • Be a coach or an assistant coach
  • Be a team manager 
  • Be a referee
  • Be a board member
  • Help your team by offerring to line a soccer field when its your team's turn to line a field
  • Offer to help a coach, manager, or board member
  • Get involved in volunteering with our parent soccer organizations like PCSA.

Regardless of whatever volunteer effort you make, it will have a positive impact on our community and you will get a certain amount of satisfaction and fulfillment in return. 

Our club has had a wonderful history of having enough volunteers to make things runs smoothly and we encourage everyone who is willing and able to find some way to get involved.

Special Thanks to all our current volunteers and everything they do!

 
Field Lining

All teams are expected to participate in field maintenance or another volunteer duty as part of their good standing requirements. Each team needs to complete 4 hours regular season volunteering and 6 hours Turkey Jamboree volunteering. Parents, coaches volunteer their time to coach our kids, these hours need to be completed by people other than coaches.

Field lining should preferably be completed Friday evening before game day. Fields should be lined no later than 8:00am on Saturday mornings. On dry weeks you can line fields as early as Thursday night.

Paint and lining equipment is for the most part, located in the blue lockboxes at each field. Some fields they are located in storage containers nearby. On the FME Live Schedule there is a tab on the spreadsheet that reads "Fields". You will find the exact location for lining supplies on that spreadsheet for all the fields. If you do not have the code for the lockbox you can email our Fields Chair at fieldschair@fmesoccer.org.

For lining you repaint over the existing lines and ensure the goals are placed correctly and weighted.
