Volunteer Participation

CCYS is administrated and coached entirely by volunteers. There is no pay, the hours can be long, and the commitment and effort sometimes goes unrecognized. There are very few perquisites, and in the end there is only the satisfaction that they have played a role in helping young people reach their dreams. The goals are common and simple: to provide the young football and cheer athletes with a positive experience that will give them lasting memories, personal development and characteristics that will enhance their life including the experience, knowledge and understanding of commitment, self-discipline, teamwork, sportsmanship, integrity and scholastics.

To volunteer is to give and it is our fundamental belief that you must give to get in life. There are hundreds of jobs that need to be done during the course of the season involving thousands of hours of time. The system works best if more people give a little bit rather than a few people giving until they drop. It is important that everyone help to make the program the best it can be. For some it will be simply having their athlete to the venue on time … they are consumed by other aspects of their life. Others will donate insatiably … they have a burning passion for their athletes, youth sports, and the quality of life in the Silicon Valley. The key to success lies in the many others that can give a few hours here and there to make sure that the job is done and done right.

You can volunteer for your team and the overall program in many ways. We need help with field maintenance, snack bar, MPR personnel, equipment distribution and maintenance, league and regional events, computer work, and paperwork. Contact your Team Business Manager, Coach, or Christy McCarter, our 2020 League Administrator (christym.youthsports@gmail.com). Let us know you are out there and we can all work together to see how you can best help the program.

Thank you very much for your volunteer participation this season. The ultimate result of the season will be reflected by our collective efforts …
