Volunteer Info

Welcome!  We appreciate your interest in serving alongside our ministry!  We are looking for dedicated partners in both sports & recreation leadership as well as behind-the-scenes operations.  To volunteer, contact our Recreation office

Opportunities within the Volleyball League include:

  • Volleyball Coach (coach application required)

Impact the lives of children and have fun while you volunteer as a volleyball coach! Use your talents to teach sport fundamentals as well as the value of sportsmanship, teamwork, integrity and respect for authority.  Never coached before?  Don’t worry, we will provide you with all the resources from Upward Sports necessary to teach the sport, share life lessons, and coach your team.

Some requirements include:

- Attend and lead practice once a week (hour) and games on Friday evenings (hour)
- Love to have fun and be with kids
- Growing relationship with the Lord and comfortable to lead team devotionals

- Good communications and organizational skills
- Able to handle conflict, if arises.
- Able to put together practice schedule (Skills development, Drills, and more)

  • Volleyball Referee / Line Judge

Do you have some knowledge of the game or consider yourself teachable?  If so, we need referees to enforce the rules of the game. One head referee and two line judges per game are needed.

  • Team Parent

If you enjoy coordinating details for your child's team and encouraging families to make the most out of their sports experience, we need your help!  Responsibilities include coordinating snacks on game days and recruiting a parent per game to serve as a line judge (calling in and out of bounds). Team Parents can also coordinate a team gathering if desired. 

 

Additional Volunteer Info for Coaches
As part of the application process for becoming a volunteer coach, a background check must be completed for all volunteers interested in leading and interacting with our participants.  Our goal is to maintain a safe environment in order to fulfill our mission in recreation ministry.  We screen applicants both to protect our ministry participants as well as our volunteers.
