Family Volunteer Requirements:

  • The Rotterdam Youth Soccer Club continues to invest in upgrades to our soccer fields. This continued investment is possible in part because of proceeds from the concession stand. Each team will be asked to provide volunteers to staff the concession stand (1 of the 8 weeks for approximately 2 hours). It is vital to our success that volunteers from each team are ready to assist on the day their team is assigned to help. Your participation is not only appreciated but is greatly needed.

  • Spectators will be required to sit on the side of the field opposite the teams. This will allow coaches to use the sidelines to provide direction and instruction to players without putting spectators, players, or them at risk of injury. Spectators should be at least 2 feet off the sidelines.
