Soccer – Volunteers


ANZA Soccer relies largely on volunteers to operate.

Team Parent

Please note: Parents should be blind copied in all communication
  • Distribute uniforms at the start of each season and note the number down of each players jersey
  • Arrange a fruit roster – one family each week in the team is responsible to bring fruit / healthy snacks for the whole team
  • Note absences and inform the coach
  • Note the awarding of the player of the week trophy (ensure it is evenly awarded to all members of the team)
