Volunteer program for Waukesha Lacrosse Club, Inc

Voted and approved by the Board of Directors on November 11, 2014.

General details of the program:

  • Every family will be obligated to fulfill season volunteer opportunities. Details are found below.

  • Families with more than one player will be required to satisfy the volunteer obligations of their oldest and their youngest player.

  • Anyone can volunteer on behalf of a player- it does not have to be their parent or guardian. However, it must be clear from when the volunteer checks in to their event who they are volunteering on behalf of. There will be sign in sheets at all events where volunteers are working or helping.

  • There is no maximum limit. This means if you have fulfilled your obligations but are approached to help, it is because we need help at that moment and we respectfully ask that you consider stepping up even though you “don’t need to volunteer anymore”

  • If you know ahead of time that you will not be able to fulfill your obligations and know that your volunteer check will be cashed, please let your team manager know at the beginning of the season. You will still receive emails regarding opportunities but at least you won’t have your cage rattled during the season. It is too difficult to maintain different email distribution lists.

  • You are expected to find your own substitute if you cannot make an event you signed up for. Your substitute must let us know when they sign in that they are volunteering on your player’s behalf. Please communicate to your team manager if you cannot make it and who is coming in your place. If you “no show” for your event, your volunteer check may be subject to forfeiture (that is, it may be cashed)

  • The team manager will have a sign in sheet for each game. If you don’t sign in, you won’t get credit for being there.  

  • If you have any family circumstance that is going to prohibit you or any part of your family to volunteer, please notify your level director as soon as it becomes known.


    The number of games you will be obligated to work will depend on the number of games being played and the roster size, therefore this number will be set after rosters are set.

    We are required by the high school conferences and the youth leagues to provide game day staff.
