Please sign-up to fulfill your volunteer requirements by reviewing the descriptions of the opportunities below and then signing up at the SignUp Genius link. Each family is required to volunteer for 3 slots per player, and there are a variety of options available:
Scoreboard: 1 volunteer for each JV and Varsity home game. Run the scoreboard (goals and game time) from a warm, dry, seat-with-a-view in the press box. Instructions provided!
Penalty Table: 2 volunteers per game for each JV and Varsity home game. Track penalties for both the home and away teams. Instructions provided; referees tell you exactly what you need to do! (another great view to watch the game up close!)
Concessions: 2 volunteers staff the concession stand at every JV and Varsity home game. Jenny Hoff is coordinating concessions and setting up for all games; she will teach concession stand volunteers what they need to know!
Videographers: 1-2 parent volunteers for Varsity, 1-2 parent volunteers for JV to record games (AWAY only). Video camera and tripod provided. After each game, connect with the coaches so they can download the film to review with the boys. We prefer that the same couple of individuals record all games so the filming is consistent. This position comes with a press box seat for each game (at most stadiums), so you don't need to worry about the weather!
Statisticians: Thank you Berton Olson and Kevin Hooley for keeping stats again this year! They will cover several games each this season, and we will need 1-2 more volunteers to assist them. We need coverage at all home & away Varsity games (with 2 statisticians at each game). They will train you, but ideally you have (1) some knowledge of lacrosse already, and (2) are willing to take stats again next year. These positions come with press box seats at home games (and most away games). If interested, sign up at the link but also notify Stacy Jacobson so she can connect you with Berton and/or Kevin.
Team Dinners: Thanks to Shari Zuehlke who is coordinating our team dinners. All families should have received an email with team dinner meal assignments (Team Dinner information). We also need 4 volunteers to help Shari with setting up, serving, and cleaning up for each of the dinners.
The above opportunities are available at the SignUp Genius link. Please note that there are 3 separate tabs at this link: (1) Varsity Lacrosse Game Day Volunteers, (2) JV Game Day Volunteers, and (3) Team Dinners. Sign up for any opportunities, not just game day duties for the team your son plays on; however JV parents should sign up for concession stand duties during the Varsity games and vice versa, so all parents may watch their sons play. If you are unable to fulfill the duties you signed up for, you are responsible for finding someone to cover for you.
Announcer: Thank you to Rick Beck for being the "Voice of the Royals" again this season. This is his final season, so if you would be interested in taking over this responsibility in 2023 please let us know; Rick will teach you the ropes this season and maybe even give you some practice time! This is another VIP volunteer opportunity with plush press box seating and control of the microphone & music!
Unsure what to do? Where to go? Who to see? Maybe even nervous just a little? Don't fret - we're here for you! Reach out to Stacy Jacobson (contact info above, right) for more information.
On game day, allow additional time to park and make your way into the stadium. Arrive at least 20 minutes prior to the start of your scheduled game duties. Coach Worwa may be available to point you in the right direction, however if you are not able to locate him - please look to the referees as additional resources.
Thank you for your continued support!
