East Side Soccer is a totally volunteer-run organization. These are many tasks that wouldn't get done without the hard work and commitment of these volunteers. Please consider volunteering to help East Side Soccer run smoothly! Possible volunteer options include: 

Coach - we need at least two coaches for each team. Although coaching the older divisions is easier for experienced coaches, those without experience can feel comfortable in the lower divisions. 

Division Coordinators - for each of our 9 divisions. Make up team rosters and schedules, and relay these and equipment to the coaches. Collect equipment at the end of the season.

Registrar - receives registrations and distributes them to the coordinators. Maintains NYSWYSA online database for ESS registrations. Attends board meetings. 

Permit Coordinator - obtains permits from the City of Syracuse for field use. 

Field Coordinator(s) - paints lines on the fields. (Yes, we have equipment to do so!) Works with contractor to arrange mowing and other general maintenance. 

Referee Coordinators (2 needed) - One person schedules the high school student referees for games, and the other is responsible for paying the refs each Saturday 

Referees- This is a paid position. East Side Soccer is committed to mentoring and training young referees, many of whom have played in our organization. We provide access to courses for certification. For more information on How to Become a Referee, click here.

Practice Field Coordinator - coordinates scheduled practice times and fields with the 4/5 and 6/7/8 divisions coaches, so that two teams dont show up at the same field at the same time! 

Team Parents - work with coaches and division coordinators to share information and schedules, coordinate snacks, etc.
