What is expected from a Mavericks Lacrosse Player and Parent?
Although the bulk of fundraising labor is provided by the boys, the program cannot function without parent volunteers performing all the various duties that keep the club running throughout the season. At the end of the year banquet, the club will elect new officers, but, there are many other ways to be involved with the program that are just as important. Without multi-parent involvement, this program cannot exist.
All chair positions can be co-held, so partner up with a friend and sign up for the position that best suits your talents, abilities, interests and time allotment. This is a great way to meet other parents on the team and many positions require just a few hours of help a season.
Please look over the opportunities listed below. You will be given the opportunity to select the areas that you would be interested in volunteering at any of the parent meetings as well as throughout the season.
