2018 Parent’s Volunteers Information
Since its very beginning VMLA has been fortunate to have many great volunteers step up to fill key positions within the association, from board members, coaches, team managers to equipment managers, timekeepers, raffle table attendants, and pancake masters.
VMLA needs your help every lacrosse season. VMLA parents are invited to offer their expertise, time, and energy to enhance the experience of all our Vancouver youth taking part in the great Canadian game of lacrosse. VMLA is largely supported and enabled by the community itself, relying heavily on volunteers and only minimally on government support and fundraising. It is for this reason that each family is asked to contribute 6 hours of volunteer time per season.
We have many small tasks that we need help with - they are listed in the below volunteer signup lists and are updated frequently:
VMLA General Volunteer Opportunities (Upcoming activities: Car Free Day on Main Street)
We also have other key roles that we need filled - these roles are really pivotal for VMLA and make a large impact on the organization and the kids. Please take a look below for our most needed volunteer opportunities:
