Below you'll find our various Volunteer roles and descriptions. Being a Volunteer is a great way to get involved in this great sport and help our kids!
I. ORGANIZATIONAL SUPPORT
The new William A. Rice complex is still expanding but is not fully funded. More fields will be built fo us in the near future and we have been contributing to the expansion. We need your help to reach our goal so that everyone that wants to can learn and play this great game. In addition to offering the KP Lax gear, in 2011 we had other options such as The Calendar Raffle and Team Baskets at our Field Day. All these helped us meet our goals. Together, we were tremendously successful!
Your continued support in 2012 is critical to help us keep the momentum. Information on 2012 fundraising efforts is forthcoming. In the meantime, to get involved with KPYL fundraising or if you have any fundraising ideas, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to include "Fundraising" in the subject line.
Project oriented volunteers interested in working with an energetic team to raise funds for KPYL by:
- Helping to plan and run our Field Day
- Helping to plan and run the Calendar Raffle
- Helping to sell KPYL authentic lax merchandise at/during home games
- Recruiting sponsors and donors of cash, as well as raffle prizes and auctionable items.
Experience helpful but not necessary. Volunteers must commit to seeing the project tasks they volunteer for through to completion. Planning will begin in November. All events will be finished by the end of May.
