Volunteers needed


The Upper Milford Youth Association is seeking volunteers to help with all its sports programs.

President Matthew Skekel said UMYA is a 100 percent volunteer run club including all coaches and the board of directors.

Volunteers keep UMYA a successful, safe and fun place for kids to enjoy, learn and play sports with their friends and neighbors.

The following volunteer positions need to be filled:

•Baseball Coordinator: organize teams and work with the leagues UMYA teams play in. Coordinate uniforms and fees needed to be paid (two or three hours per week in season)

•Basketball Coordinator: duties similar to baseball coordinator (two or three hours per week in season)

•Sponsorship Coordinator: Work with current sponsors and look for new sponsorship opportunities (less than one hour per week)

•Uniform Coordinator: Work with individual sport coordinators in ordering and organizing team uniforms (maybe five hours for each sport season - winter, spring, fall)

•Board members: One or two board members to serve one evening a month for 10 months of the year (no meetings in July or December) and help guide and make decisions regarding UMYA.

•Soccer volunteers: Due to the success and size of the soccer program a few sub-coordinators are needed, including: recreational soccer coordinator, travel soccer coordinator and micro soccer coordinator.

Those interested in any of these positions should contact Matt Skekel or Susannah Detwiler at sdetwiler@rocketmail.com.
