Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer like Mara

Volunteers matter at Guelph Soccer.

Every player in our club has benefited from the work that our volunteers do.

Volunteers make a difference every day at Guelph Soccer. Volunteers create a sense of community. We could not run our programs, league, office or events without the support of volunteers. At Guelph Soccer, you can volunteer in many ways. 

  1. Volunteer to Coach: Annually we have over 200 house league teams and 40 competitive teams all coached by dedicated volunteers.

  2. House League: Coaching at the recreational level requires no experience. We simply ask that volunteers are dedicated to their team and have a desire to learn. We offer coach clinics and all the required information to make your season successful.

  3. Rep: We open rep coach applications each year in August. This is an opportunity for volunteers to express their interest in coaching at the competitive level. There are different certifications required for each age group - more information is available here. Coaches go through an application process to determine suitability and fit.

    • Volunteer at Events: Throughout the year, Guelph Soccer hosts many events to create a sense of community at our Club. These include; Junior Festival, Timbit Festival, House League festivals and tournaments, First on the Turf Competitive Tournament.

      • Photo Day; June 8th 2019 | On Photo Day all of our players cycle through to take their individual and team photos. Volunteers will help direct players and parents in the right direction and ensure smooth flow of players.
