For Volunteers

All minor sports organizations rely on volunteers for their success.  As a volunteer, you provide a service to both the club as well as demonstrating support for your child in the activity they have selected.  Your involvement will enhance your child’s experience and allow you the opportunity to assist in making the season enjoyable and memorable.  Many hands make light work.

The Volunteer cheques are returned after a total of 16 hours of volunteer service are completed per player (per family if more than one player in family). There are a wide variety of volunteer options available to families in the organization.

Sample Activities

  • Concession worker
  • Yardage Sticks
  • 50/50 Ticket sales
  • Game Announcer
  • Videotape Games
  • Field Set-up or Take-down
  • Scorekeeper

The MWMFA requires that each player submit two post-dated cheques each for $100.  One post dated for Sept. 15, of current year and one post dated for Nov. 15, of current year.   Each hour you complete will be counted as such towards the completion of 16 hours.  On the completion of the first 8 hours, you will be given back your cheque dated for Sept.  Upon completion of hours 9 to 16, your will receive your second cheque back.  The hours are tabulated at the end of each month and the necessary cheques are returned at the beginning of the next month.  You can also make this a family affair and have more than one person or friend work for your child at one event, such as concession, and all hours worked count.

There is an assistant volunteer co-coordinator position for each team to work with the Volunteer Co-coordinator to find the people necessary to fill the jobs required.

Please note that all of our on-field volunteers will need to submit a police information check. There is no cost to you for this if you fill out the required forms and submit them to our club president.
