.NEED YOUR HELP, AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!
The behind-the-scenes work for the Tournament has been ongoing since last November but it is now fast approaching!!! This is the 'Minis' biggest fundraising event of the year and our LAST!!
If anyone has access to a contact for the following or can supply any of the following, please let me know as it would really help go a long way to minimise our costs
Entrance Arch / toilets / No parking cones
New direction signs
I will also need help from parents the day before and on the day. In addition to coaching/refereeing - which is already being taken care of - there are other “hands-on” roles which play a big part in ensuring that the tournament runs smoothly for the U12s These revolve around equipment set-up , team registration, pitch marshalling, scoreboard tracking, taking equipment down and tidying up U12 area after tournament has finished.
I would like as many volunteers as I can so that everyone gets a chance to watch their children play and that nobody plays a particular role for more than a couple of hours.
HELP IS NEEDED IN THE FOLLOWING AREAS:
Saturday 24th March - Time TBA(but probably mid morning/early afternoon for a couple of hours) - 4/6 parents needed - Jobs include collating packs for visiting teams,trophies and balls, general club tidy-up, organise pitch signage/corner flags.
Sunday 25th March
Early Sunday morning set-up - at least 6 parents needed. -Times TBA - but usually 7.30am - Putting up a kids tent if weather deems it necessary, control tents and a couple of gazebos, trestle tables, noticeboards, medals, trophies, etc., set-up pitch signage, put corner flags in place.
Team Registration - 2 parents needed - Jobs include registering the teams, gathering contact info from visiting coaches and referrees, giving out welcome packs, getting photographers registered etc. 8am until approx 11am.
Pitch Marshalls - I will need at least 8 parents to cover 4 pitches. Job includes keeping matches on time and keeping a scorecard for each match.
Pitch Marshall 'runners' - At least 4 parents/teenagers are needed to cover 4 pitches. Job includes obtaining scorecards from Pitch marshalls and handing to the scoreboard trackers.
Scoreboard Tracking - 2/3 parents needed. Jobs include preparing results - identifying teams who go into knock-out round and identifying winning teams and runners-up.
Sunday afternoon 'pack-up' - At least 6 parents needed. Jobs include taking down tents, gazebos, etc and general tidy-up of U12 Pitch areas.
ALL LISTS, FORMS, SCORECARDS, CLIPBOARDS, ETC WILL BE SUPPLIED BY ME SO YOU DON'T NEED TO BRING ANYTHING OTHER THAN YOURSELVES.
If you did a particular role last year and would like to do the same please let me know.
