Liberty Lacrosse is always looking for volunteers. We welcome and encourage all parents to participate. Here are a few of the opportunities available:
Team manager: in order to allow the coaches to focus on planning for practices and games, we ask that a parent help with the back-end organization. Sending out communications and acting as an interface between the team and the coach can be invaluable to our volunteer coaches.
Game Volunteers. Want to learn more about the game, and be involved at the same time? There are some positions that our Club must have filled at every game. Training will be provided, here are the options:
Timekeeper: Keep account of time of each period; start and stop the clock when the official sounds the whistle, and at the end of each period. Notify the scorer as to the time of each score, an the time of each penalty. Sound the horn at the end of each period, and as requested for substitutions during the game. Shout out 2 minutes remaining in the game, and other time intervals as requested by the referee.
Penalty Timekeeper (optional): Keep account of penalty time (this can be done by the timekeeper on the LaxClock, but is sometimes done separately). Inform the penalized players when the penalty time has expired.
Spotter: Assist the scorekeeper by announcing the goals scored and assists, and by which player. Announce other stats and the play of the game to the scorekeeper.
Scorekeeper:Record in the team scorebook the number of goals scored and assists made by each team, the name and number of the player making the core or the assist, and check the score with the referee at the end of each period.Keep a record of the number of time-outs taken by each team and notify the officials if either team exceeds the maximum number allowed. Keep a record of the name and number of each player to whom a penalty is assessed, the type of violation, the time of the period when the foul occurred and the duration of the penalty. Notify the official if a player fouls out. (tracking other stats such as ground balls, face-off win/loss, goalie saves, clears, etc. is optional, as requested by coach and as time allows).
Community outreach: Since Liberty Lacrosse is still young, we are always working hard to get the word out to our community. This may include community education and recruiting, marketing, and fundraising.
