Stoneham Youth Football and Cheer is 100% entirely volunteer run - from our Board of Directors to the coaching staff. The more volunteers we have, the more smoothly and successfully our program will run. Each season, we need approximately 12-14 volunteers for each home game. With 8-9 games total and as many as 5 of those being home games, we require about 70 volunteers per home season or approximately 140 volunteer hours.
Therefore, during our home games, one parent from each family will be required to volunteer a mandatory 1.5 hours (1 game) to the program. Team parents along with the team parent coordinator, will compile a volunteer assignment spreadsheet in mid-August with assigned volunteers' time and date. If you cannot make your assigned time and date, it is your responsibility to trade with another parent. If you would like to request a certain date/time and/or duty in advance, or if you would like to volunteer more than once or even every week, please feel free to contact your team parent.
You can volunteer at any time during the day. You do not need to volunteer during your child’s game time (of course, if it is for the chain gang, you will be even closer to the action!). 
We need volunteers for the following positions:
  • Set Up - Two people 1/2 hour prior to the start of the first game to make sure the field is clear, help set up equipment on field, ensure trash bags are in receptacles, and make sure toiletry supplies are in bathrooms
  • Chain Gang - Three people for each game to hold down markers on the sidelines
  • Traffic Control - Two people in between each game to direct traffic in and out of the parking lot
  • Trash Pickup - One person to empty full containers during games
  • 50/50 Raffle - Two people to sell 50/50 raffle tickets for each game, pick and announce winner to crowd
  • Clean Up - Two people 1/2 hour after the end of the last game to make sure the field is clear, help remove equipment from the field, ensure trash has been emptied, and make sure toiletry supplies are re-stocked in bathrooms
  • Floating/fill-ins - Two people in the event we need an extra set of hands to perform any of the tasks listed above or to assist the Board in other areas while hosting visiting teams
  • ALL volunteers will be CORI checked. This can be completed by registering as a volunteer online through the registration website
