You do not have to do it all yourself! You should motivate and enlist volunteers to support their students and the team.
You are strongly encouraged to identify and communicate volunteer needs prior to season and have most slots filled. Some common volunteer roles include:
- Team dinners
- Running optional activities to team build
- Fund raising
- Game day assistance
- Tournament organization
- Year-end banquet
There are a number of web-based applications that can help you with volunteer sign-ups such as DIBS. These can be helpful to schedule and remind volunteers of their assignments so that you can minimize your emails and phone calls.
