Welcome Folsom Lacrosse Families,
Thank you for volunteering!
When you access the volunteer schedule you will find a list of all the volunteer jobs needed by your team. The “Open” column shows either “Full” or how many volunteers are still needed for that job. Click anywhere on the line of an Open job to sign-up for that job.
Please sign-up for a job or multiple jobs which total a minimum of 8 “credits” per player for that player’s team. Credits are listed for each job. Generally, a credit equates to an hour of time commitment. (You may "buy out" your hours by paying the league $150/player. Please see your Team Manager for more details.)
Some jobs are a commitment for an entire season while others are specific to a particular game or event. Job descriptions are listed below. Your team’s volunteer sign-up schedule may not have all of the jobs listed in the Volunteer Job Description document, as your Team Manager has tailored your schedule based upon minimum needs and number of volunteers available, to help minimize the amount of volunteer hours required from each family.
**For those who are new to working the "Table" (Timer/Game Clock and Scorekeeper), below is a table training video which covers everything**
If you have any questions, please reach out to your Team Manager or contact Marianne Caraska at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have a great season!
