Ridgefield Youth Lacrosse needs you. In the last few years our program has grown roughly 35%, with close to 700 boys and girls playing youth lacrosse in Ridgefield in 2019. As our organization continues to grow each year, so does our need for help to enable our programs to run smoothly. Lacrosse is a truly great sport with a rich history and unique cultural heritage. We’re proud that so many young Ridgefielders are a part of the lax community, but to properly serve our lax athletes RYL needs many hands.
We have had the benefit of a number of longstanding, committed volunteers who wore countless hats and selflessly devoted many years of their time to help run our organization for the benefit of all of our children. They, soon to be joined by others, no longer have children in the program and have moved on to enjoy the fruits of their labor as their kids prosper in high school and beyond.
RYL is now seeking the next generation of volunteers to help our organization move forward. We need “doers” – collaborative individuals who are organized, efficient and possess an abundance of follow through – to manage a number of open roles and responsibilities in the organization. These are non-board positions but there is ample opportunity to earn a seat on the board for those individuals who demonstrate an earnest commitment and practical contribution to the RYL infrastructure.
The following roles are open:
Website: Serve as point person for updating and adding content to website, managing Facebook and Instagram pages and utilizing social media outlets to communicate and publicize RYL events, activities and information.
Coaches and Assistant Coaches: Adults with lacrosse experience are needed for boys and girls teams this spring. We are looking for individuals who are eager to share their knowledge of the game in a positive, fun and instructional team culture appropriate for the grade level.
Please consider volunteering. We simply cannot sustain a quality program of this size without you. For more information about any of the roles please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Planning goes on year-round so we look forward to hearing from you very soon and welcoming new members to our team!
