Volunteer Roles
Posted May 24, 2018

WYAA is a family experience. As a WYAA volunteer, a parent gets to participate with their child and teach the values of giving back to the community. Sometimes it’s the whole family with parents, siblings and grandparents all getting in on the act.

Coaching and refereeing may be the most visible volunteer roles, but there are many ways to help a team or League. Many volunteer roles require small amounts of time, but are very valuable to the kids. There is a WYAA volunteer opportunity for everyone.

Here are some roles that are important to the success of our Wolcott Soccer Program.

Particularly at the lower levels, many coaches learn the game along with their kids.
