Adult Volunteer Registration Instructions

How can I sign up to volunteer?

  • During the registration process, select the appropriate program, division, and role that you would like to sign up for and enter all required information. If you would like to volunteer in more than one role, or coach in more than one division, you must select each role, and in each program/division that you will be volunteering.
  • If you do not have a child in a program and have not already created an account, create an account for yourself as a Coach or Other Team Personnel With No Participants, and follow the instructions below to register as a volunteer.
