As you already know, SFFC has many committed volunteers; look no further than your daughter’s or son’s coach! Perhaps a little more “behind the scenes”, other volunteers run the concession stands, while other volunteers work tirelessly in the running and management of the club’s operations. We don’t even want to guess how many hours these people contribute to Saanich Fusion, but it’s a lot.
So with all these committed people, why do we need to pay a volunteer fee? Well… aside from the day-to-day running of a club with hundreds of soccer players ranging in age from 5 to 65 years of age, the club also has major events and hosts tournaments that require a large number of volunteers to run successfully. If we can’t find volunteers, we have to hire people to fill these roles. This is why the club charges a volunteer fee.

What counts as volunteering?
Each team has 6 possible roles that exempt you from further volunteering: coach, assistant coach, team manager, team volunteer coordinator, female rep (for girls’ teams), and a (certified) first aid person. There are other positions within the club that would also count, such as age group coordinators.
Not interested in taking on a season-long positions? Check out the Current Volunteer Opportunities section for upcoming “jobs” to fulfill your hours.
