Get involved and help make a difference in our club

Updated September 1, 2020

We are a club run by volunteers, and it takes many a hand to grow the organization and keep us successful season to season and year to year. As older children and their volunteer parents age out of the club, we rely on new volunteers to fill the vacated roles and this coming year is no different.

Our goal is to keep all volunteer roles as small and manageable as possible, because we value your time as much as you do. If you are interested in any of the following positions, or have any questions about the responsibilities or time commitment, please contact Cathy Alexander at secretary@fcmontco.org.

Current open positions:

Director, Scheduling

CRITICAL.Coordinates game scheduling for all travel teams. Busiest times are in late March and late July/early August (3-4 hrs per week), otherwise 1 hr per week or less. Everything is managed electronically by email, Excel, and Google calendars. Travel parents or coaches are preferred due to their familiarity with schedule expectations. (Wink, wink…you can set yourself a friendly game schedule for the fall…)

Director, Fundraising

CRITICAL. Actively works to solicit local businesses to sponsor intramural teams. We have an established program in place, but we need someone to execute and contact potential sponsors on our behalf. Less than 1-2 hours per week.

League Delegate, PAGS

Represents our club in the PAGS League. Coordinates league registration and scheduling process. Requires 1-2 hours per week during season.

School District Liaison

This is the person responsible for requesting and confirming the field/turf space at the high school, as well as at other schools at which the club uses space.

Worcester Township Liaison

This person is our direct contact with the Worcester Township Director and gets the permits we need from the township. This position requires 3 hours/week at the beginning of the spring and the beginning of the fall. For the rest of the season and year, it requires a very low time commitment for occasional emails.

Director, Uniforms

Assistant to VP Intramurals

This person will work alongside our Vice President of Intramural Soccer to help ensure the reliable operation and management of our Intramural program. The time commitment will be variable, but is expected to be concentrated during the weeks leading up to the spring and fall seasons.

Volunteer Clearance Requirements

As of July 1, 2015, new child protection laws took effect in Pennsylvania that require any club volunteers in direct contact with children to have child abuse clearances and specific background checks—the same ones needed to volunteer in your child's school. Full information on the legislation and reporting requirements is available at:

Additionally, Methacton United is required to maintain copies of clearances for all volunteers. We must have this documentation in hand prior to the commencement of your volunteer activities. Simply put:

If your clearances are not on file,
you are not permitted on the field.

Specifically, all coaches, assistant coaches, trainers, and even parents that are helping out more than one time are required to have the clearances listed below.

  • Child Abuse History Clearance (link)
  • PA State Police Criminal Record Check (link)
  • Fingerprint-based FBI Federal Criminal History (link)
  • Affidavit of Compliance (link) This affidavit is only applicable in lieu of the FBI background check if you have lived in Pennsylvania continuously for the previous 10 years. See keepkidssafe.pa.gov for full requirements and information.

Copies of all documentation must be emailed to our Secretary and Risk Management Coordinator at secretary@methactonunited.org. Please indicate the position and program for which you have volunteered.
