Volunteers Needed

Dr. Martin Luther King said "Everybody can be great because everybody can serve".  Are you one thats looking to serve and make a difference in the Rockland community?  If so, volunteering for RYS is one way of giving yourself that satisfaction, pride, and accomplishment you get when volunteering.  

There are many opportunities to volunteer your time with RYS:

Concession Stand - Do you want to earn a FREE RYS Registration? If so, RYS is in need of help in the concession stands during the Spring season. If you want to earn this free registration you just need to volunteer 8 hours of your time over the entire Soccer season. That's only 1 hour per week! High School students looking to earn their community service hours can also volunteer at the Concession stand. If you are interested in volunteering your time please contact our Director of Concessions, Christine Berkley @ cberks74@yahoo.com .

Coaching - ALL Age groups are looking for Coaches.  If you, or someone you know is interested in coaching for one of the age groups, please reach out to that age groups Age Directors.  You can find a link of Age Directors by clicking on the Divisions/Age Director tab.

Looking to volunteer your expertise?  If you fall in this category or know of a person or company looking to volunteer their services please consider RYS.  We are always looking at ways to get better.

RYS Other Important Announcements

  • Cleat Donation Program – RYS is pleased to bring back the cleat donation program. If you have soccer cleats that are in good condition but no longer fit your player please consider donating them to RYS. RYS will make these cleats available to those that are in need of a pair. Please consider donating your soccer cleats to the clubhouse. For those in need of soccer cleats, please come down to the clubhouse to see what we have available.
  • Cones and Pinnies - Coaches, as many of you are aware RYS has in the past been able to provide Cones and Pinnies for coaches to use at practices and games. As we do not have enough to hand a set out to every coach we keep them in the shed so all can access and use. But in order for this to work we need to make sure that everyone is returning them at the end of their practice. This ensure that they are available to you next time you need them and to the coach who is practicing after you. The travel teams also have a responsibility when they are playing at home to put on a different colour if the visiting team is too close to ours. So it’s not just a nice thing to have but a necessity.  So right now I have to ask any coach that may have forgotten to put them back after their last practice to get them into the shed. They have all but disappeared and I need to recover what we have so I can determine what is needed. So please check your gear bags, trunks, and garages for any RYS gear that can be returned and shared.
