KLM is a non-profit society organized and operated mainly by volunteers. Our most visible volunteers are our coaches and managers but there are many other volunteer roles performed by members such as field lining and photo day assistants to ensure the kids at KLM have the best soccer experience. We are in constant need of volunteers so please consider contributing for one of the volunteer opportunities available at KLM.
As a volunteer you will receive a discount on your yearly registration fees. We understand many of you have schedules that will not permit you to volunteer at KLM, so a small volunteer fee is charged to offset the cost of operating the club.
If you would to contribute some of your time at KLM please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
Each team has at least two coaches who are responsible for on-field activities for the team. Starting in the 2018/2019 Fall/Winter season the KLM Technical Director will support our volunteer coaches through lesson plans, periodic in house coaching clinics and information regarding BC Soccer accredited courses.
Each team has a manager – a parent on the team who is responsible for administering the team. At the start of the season the club will provide each manager a KLM Resource Guide Manual that will provide each manager the A-Z’s of managing your child’s team and to ensure it is an enjoyable experience.
The Parent Supervisor is tasked with being on the field and working under the direction of the staff coaches. You will be responsible for 3-4 kids during the session and assist the KLM staff coach in keeping players organized and focused on the activities.
If you are a parent of a child who is in the U8, U9 and U10 age groups (Minis), then this is the perfect volunteer role for you. Our minis home field Kensington Park needs to be lined every Friday afternoon in preparation for games on Saturday.
