Volunteers Needed

Belwest Foxes Soccer Club Inc. is a volunteer community football club. We rely on our volunteers to provide a good environment for children and adults to play football. Please consider assisting in some way in 2018. We are looking for the following committee roles to be filled: Vice President-Operations, Mens League Coordinator, Womens League Coordinator, Junior Registrars and Junior League Coordinator as well as Support roles for Canteen Coordinator(s) and Events Coordinator. For further details on the these positions, please email – secretary@belwestsoccer.com.

All new Volunteers will be supported by the previous Role holder or other Committee members until they get the hang of the role, so please if you want to try out, please email secretary@belwestsoccer.com.

If the club cannot fill the Committee roles then we may have to fold the club altogether and that would be a great loss to the Belwest Soccer Community.
