Volunteers Needed

Belwest Foxes Soccer Club Inc. is a volunteer community football club. We rely on our volunteers to provide a great environment for children and adults to play football. Please consider assisting in some way in 2022/2023. We are looking for the following committee roles to be filled: Treasurer, Mens League Coordinator, Womens League Coordinator, Junior League Coordinator, come along to our AGM or see a Committee member and become a valued volunteer. For further details on the these positions, please email – secretary@belwestsoccer.com or president@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 us.

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.
