Team Volunteer Descriptions


Football is a “community” sport. It needs the involvement of all of the families of all of the players. Even if you don’t know a thing about football, there are plenty of things that you can do to help. We ask that each family take on some volunteer responsibility.

 

Team Parent
Responsible for team communications, coordinating game day and kickoff/spirit day event volunteers, coordinate collection of league approved events (ie kick off day tix sales, SMHS / MHHS opening night w/ SMPW tix, auction basket items, coaches gift funds), plan team party, assist players on the field during games. Maintain communication with parents where coach deems helpful.

Business Manager
Responsible for all business aspects of team management. Responsible for maintaining “THE BOOK” (contains all league required participant documents and MPR’S), weighing players on game day. The Business Manager also serves as the play counter for your team at games unless assigned to another volunteer and assists the Little Scholars Representative with coordinating grades and eligibility with coaches and parents.  The Business Manager will work with the Head Coach and Team Parent to ensure that the team runs smoothly.

Checker/Spotter
Tracks playing time to ensure minimum play requirements are met. Checker is positioned on opposing sideline to mark off opponents minimum plays. Spotter calls out player #’s on home team side to Checker sent over from other team. The Spotter is usually the team's Business Manager but another volunteer may be assigned.   

Chain Gang (3 volunteers per home game)
The Chain Gang is responsible for holding the down markers.  Chain Gang volunteers will be on the field but cannot communicate with the players.   

Announcer (home games only)
The Announcer will announce the game from the “booth” at  all home games.

Photographer (optional)
Take photos of players and coaches during game/ practice – usually wanted for season ending video. 

Portable Shade (to be coordinated by Head Coach and/or Team Parent)
Bring a portable tent to games.

Post Game Reporter (optional)
In previous seasons, we had a parent who would write a brief summary of our game and submit it with a photo to the local papersThey all were published and created some fun keepsakes.
 
Scout Video Coordinator (optional)
Manage the process to hire someone to make scout films of upcoming opponents and coordinate their activities. Ensure they get copies of the video to the coaches. You don’t have to film but you do have to do a lot of coordinating
 
Game/Season Video (optional)
Will video tape all games and scrimmages and distribute them to the coaching staff. The coaches and the team will review the film (and parents can watch if they are around.) May put together a team highlight film at the end of the season.
