Metuchen Town Soccer Club: About/Volunteer

It’s all about fun and soccer.

The Metuchen Town Soccer Club organizes a recreational soccer program that 
emphasizes equal participation and instruction for all while de-emphasizing winning and 
losing, league standings and all-star concepts. Our goal is for children to enjoy playing 
soccer while also learning sportsmanship, cooperation and the skills of the game.
 
The program is open to youths from kindergarten through ninth grade. Any child who 
lives or goes to school in Metuchen or whose parents work in Metuchen is eligible to play. 

Our fall season consists of 10 games, which are played on Saturdays beginning the first 
week of September and ending by the second week of November. Players from first 
grade on up also practice once a week. We also offer a spring soccer program that goes 
from the first week of April through the end of May. 

Since 1991, the Club has upheld a soccer tradition that’s a source of community and 
enjoyment for the kids and parents of Metuchen. As a club we are proud of our 
contribution to the borough and our influence on its youth. In support of education and 
community involvement, we provide scholarships to Metuchen High School seniors each 
year through our Tony Black Memorial Fund, named after the founder of our organization. 

In addition, the Club also provides new soccer equipment to Metuchen schools as well 
as funding for other activities that benefit the children of Metuchen. 

The Metuchen Town Soccer Club receives no funding from The Borough of Metuchen or 
the Metuchen Travel Soccer Club, and is a not-for-profit organization under section 
501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code. 

Contributions (but not registration or late fees) are tax deductible. Information filed with

Volunteers Needed - No Soccer Skills required

Our organization depends on volunteers! As our club continues to grow (we currently have almost 500 kids playing per fall season), we have seen a marked decrease in the number of volunteers across all our programs. Preparing, organizing, and maintaining a program of our size requires volunteers on the field, at the monthly meetings and behind computers to help make it run smoothly. Your small time commitment can make a huge difference.  We need you during the season and in the off-season. See below for the many ways to get involved. 

 

  1. Coach/Manager Soccer skills are not required.  We will train you.  The coach organizes and runs practices and games.
  2. Assistant Coach Soccer skills are not required.  We will train you.  The assistant coach supports the coach and assumes the role of the coach if the coach is absent.
  3. Team Parent - Team Parents help with team correspondence and organizing the year end party.
  4. Field Setup & Maintenance - This group of individuals is responsible for field maintenance projects such as assembling the soccer goals at the beginning of the season; moving soccer goals into position Saturday mornings before the first game and/or moving the goals off the field after the last game;  marking lines on the fields;  disassembling the goals at the season?s end; and moving goals into winter storage.
  5. Field Assignment - Help us create the field assignments for the season and for the year-end megatastical event.
  6. Light Administrative Work - Help us manage our correspondence or the registration database.  Maybe make a few phone calls to parents and/or coaches.
  7. Special Projects/Events These range in size and scope.  We need help at our booth on occasions like our busy first and last days of the season. 
  8. Referee Management Team These individuals would manage the youth referee scheduling and payments.  Referees serve the 2nd through 8th grade divisions.
  9. Sponsor Management - This person would manage the sponsors.  They would make decisions regarding how we would showcase sponsors, coordinate all sponsorship activities, and manager sponsor payments in coordination with the treasurer.
  10. Website Management Assistance - This person would  work with the website manager to keep the website up to date.
