HESC Offers Several Ways to Volunteer
HESC is a volunteer-run organization. We leave the soccer to the coaches, but there’s a lot more that goes into running Houston’s best youth soccer club.
If you have any other questions regarding volunteering at HESC, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Become A Team Manager Volunteer
Team Managers in the Houston Express program handle all team administrative duties (e.g., player ID cards, medical release forms, etc.), communicate with parents regarding HESC and team matters, register their teams for tournaments and assist HESC coaches at games. In the absence of an HESC coach, the team manager will function as the coach.
Team manager volunteers in the West U Rec program handle administrative duties, communicate to and for the team, and act as liaisons with the training staff, run one of the weekly training sessions (if applicable), and act as a coach for the games.
All HESC volunteers must complete an entry level coaching license class within one year of being assigned as a team manager. Any adult wishing to serve as a team manager volunteer must first register. To register as an adult volunteer (Fall 2013 – Spring 2014 seasons) click here.
Become An Age Group Coordinator Volunteer
Age group coordinator volunteers work closely with the Boys Commissioner and Girls Commissioner, serve as the main liaisons between HESC and team managers, participate in player evaluations, recruit new team managers and welcome new players and their families to HESC.
Become An Administration Volunteer
If you have experience in copywriting, graphic design, marketing, public relations, fundraising, or general computer skills, please contact us at email@example.com.
Become a Referee
HESC registers its teams with numerous local and state organizations that organize and govern youth soccer leagues. As a club, we are required to provide a quota of USSF certified referees to these organizations (excluding EDDOA). If we do not meet our HYSA referee quota, no teams from our club will be permitted to advance to district to state playoff competitions. Our program depends on the growth of our referee core. All club members and their parents are encouraged to become a USSF referee.
Refereeing not only serves as a tremendous opportunity to learn the intricacies of the game, but referees are also paid for the games they work. Referees of all ages are welcome. Players as young as twelve have become certified referees. For more information about becoming a referee, click here.
