If you, your club or organization is interested in volunteering please contact Karie Potts at: (Please included the dates you will NOT be able to volunteer)

Volunteers should be supportive, compassionate, understanding, encouraging, thoughtful and considerate and should offer as much or as little help as the player needs or wants. Sometimes it is just guidance and positive reinforcement while at other times physical assistance may be needed.
