SSA Volunteer Opportunities

SSA VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES
(Updated - September 2013)

Volunteers are the backbone of any community organization.  Volunteering for SSA is fun and rewarding!  Please consider volunteering to keep Seymour’s soccer program strong and support Seymour youth sports.
 
SOME positions are large – requiring a commitment of 10 or more hours per week, but MOST are very small – only about 3-4 hours PER YEAR.  See below for the number of volunteers needed for SSA programming.
 
Please email SSA at  if you would like to volunteer, or would like additional information.

Team Specific Positions
 
Coach/Assistant Coach
We look for coaches that have a desire to work with children and will promote SSA’s mission, vision, and objectives (see home page link on left).
  
Coaches will be provided an AFC curriculum for all practice sessions and work under the guidance of the AFC Coach Director.   Certification and training opportunities will be available for all coaches to further develop their skills.

 
Team Manager
Every SSA team needs a Team Manager.  The Team Manager facilitates communication between the coaches and families and assists the coach with communications, tournament registrations, clerical needs, etc.

Committee Opportunities

Fundraising Committee
A committee is needed to raise funds to offset the operational costs of SSA.  This committee works under the direction of the Board.  The prominent fundraising event is the SpringFest Beer & Wine Tasting.

  • Fundraising chairpersons: 2
  • Additional Committee members: 8
  • Time Commitment: between 3-5 hours per month until event.
Kick-off Day Picnic Committee
SSA hosts a “Kick-Off” picnic usually on a Sunday to celebrate the start of the Fall Soccer Season for its younger In-House Program players.  It is a fun day primarily meant to get people together and excited about the upcoming season. It is also an opportunity for coaches and team managers to introduce themselves to teams as well as for In-House Program players to receive uniforms and schedules. 

This committee works under the direction of the In-House Director and Treasurer.
  • Committee members: 2
  • Kick Off Day Volunteers: 3-5

Welcome!

Welcome to the web home of the Seymour Soccer Association!  The SSA Board asks that you visit our site frequently as this will be the centralized resource for information.  Please check back regularly for news, scores, weather updates, coach and family materials, schedules, directions, registration information, and much more.
 
The mission of SSA is to provide a means of recreation to all the children of Seymour while promoting the sport of soccer and developing the skills of individual players.  SSA’s vision is to create and encourage an environment consistent with good sportsmanship, physical fitness, respect, team play, and having fun.
  
SSA believes that youth sports should construct a foundation of confidence and team collaboration that youngsters can transfer to their lives.  SSA is also proud to partner with Academica Futebol Club (AFC), a company composed of experienced soccer professionals that support SSA's volunteers and share SSA's goals. 

As the great coach John Wooden said, “Sports do not build character.  They reveal it.”  It is my hope that Seymour’s young people will indeed reveal their character and realize the joy that participating in soccer brings.
 
Thank you.  I look forward to continued success as well as the relationships to be made out on the pitch!
 
Very truly yours,
Al Bruno, SSA President
