Becoming A Volunteer
It’s About What’s Good For The Kids
MEYSO is an organisation ran by the MEYSO Staff, but mainly by Coaches, referees and administrators who are able to volunteer. This can be from parents, neighbours, relatives and friends lending their time and talents so that each child gets a terrific MEYSO experience. MEYSO’s volunteer foundation ensures that it’s all about what’s good for kids. It also makes MEYSO very affordable. MEYSO operates in a business manner, but MEYSO ensure its “profits” are happy, healthy kids playing a sport they can enjoy for life. MEYSO has developed special training that helps parents who may have little or no soccer experience quickly gain the age-appropriate knowledge and skills they need to be effective coaches and referees. It also has unique administrative and management training.
This ensures that each community programme:
• Abides by the MEYSO philosophies
• Offers a great MEYSO experience
• Continues to grow, offering the MEYSO opportunity to more children
It only takes a few hours to become qualified as an introductory-level coach or referee. But if you’re not able to commit even that much time, there are many small jobs you can help with. Even a couple of hours each season are an important contribution to your team and Region! MEYSO training doesn’t stop as long as you’re having fun. Referees, coaches have clinics, workshops and other advanced training will soon be available to advance their skills.
