Volunteers

As a volunteer based organization, it is vital to the success of our club that all interested individuals volunteer in some capacity throughout the year to help support the club’s activities and initiatives.

Note:  All volunteers with direct contact to players are required under the MYSA’s policies and rules to submit a background check annually.  This includes but is not limited to all coaches, team managers and board members.

CALL FOR SITE SUPERVISORS

In a collaboration effort with the school district and other sport associations in our community, the club is asking for four to five volunteers to take on the role of being a site supervisor during the times that the soccer club is renting gym space for the Futsal program and winter training activities. In order to be able to use the school district’s gym spaces to have indoor training opportunities for our players and to be able to host the winter Futsal program, we are required to have a site supervisor present during the times that the club is renting gym space. Coaches working with our players during a designated time are not eligible to be the site supervisor at the same time, so we are asking for help from our parents to ensure that our players have opportunities to continue training and participate in activities to improve their skills and keep them active and engaged in the club.

To put it plainly, if we do not have site supervisors, then we will not be allowed to use the gym spaces provided by the school district and we will face a scenario where we will not be able to offer indoor activities and trainings for our players this winter or spring when the 2021 season begins. We ask that you consider volunteering an hour or two of your time every 1-2 weeks on Saturdays in December and January for Futsal and having some flexibility to be available for trainings and practices in February/March/April so that our club can continue to offer winter opportunities for our kids to play.

This is the only training session available before Winter Futsal begins and you must attend in order to be trained and qualified as a Site Supervisor. We greatly appreciate the help and support – this will allow us to be able to continue offering enrichment activities for our players during the off seasons.

WINTER FUTSAL INFORMATION AND SIGN UP

We are excited to be partnering with the International Soccer School of Excellence (ISSE) this winter to help our players continue in their soccer skill development. Indoor futsal training translates well with individual technical foot skills, helps players to develop more confidence while on the ball in game situations, helps to develop a more complete player offensively and defensively and is also a lot of fun!

Indoor Futsal training translates well with:

· Individual technical foot skills.

· Helps players to develop more confidence while on the ball in game situations.

Our players will be taught by Greg Wheaton, owner/director of ISSE, and his professional staff. Greg has a tremendous background in playing and coaching competitive soccer at both the college and professional levels. He and his staff have provided quality futsal training for clubs such as Minneapolis United, Shakopee, Prior Lake, St. Paul Blackhawks and several others.

We will be offering our winter training sessions on December 5, 12, 19 and January 2, 9, 16, 23 and 30. 8 total sessions for only $105 total! All sessions will be held at the New Prague Middle School gyms.

Due to Covid-19 assembly guidelines, we will be limited to 25 (23 players and 2 coaches) or under persons at each session. The number of sessions held will be determined by the number of registrations. Tentative training block times for the above dates would be between 11:30am-2:30pm. Final times will be determined once registration closes.

If the New Prague school district requires the middle school gym to be closed during our planned training dates, registration refunds will be issued on a prorated basis. For example, if this were to occur halfway between our session dates, a 50% refund would be issued.
