Volunteers are an essential part of the Niskayuna Soccer Club. As a non-profit organization, the NSC relies on your assistance in order to keep fees low, run the organization smoothly, and build the development of our players. This commitment is critical for the club to function, and promotes a sense of fellowship, sportsmanship, and enjoyment.
At a mininimum, all families are expected to volunteer at the annual tournament. Beyond that, families are also asked to sign up for other non-tournament volunteer positions which require varying degrees of time, effort, enthusiasm and experience during the season. Each parent who offers his or her time and effort to support Niskayuna Soccer sets an example of leadership and sends a message to his or her child that Club soccer is not just a game, but rather a family-involved community organization.
