Volunteerism is alive and well in Norton! From the grill to the fields to the sidelines, the responses to our call for volunteers for the Fall season has been very uplifting. Despite the large number of responses, NYS is still seeking volunteers for the following positions for the upcoming Fall season:

  • Rec league director: This key individual will oversee all aspects of the Recreational season including coordination of coaching packages, interfacing with the volunteer coordinator and age group coordinators. This position can be very rewarding to someone looking to make a big impact.
  • Age group coordinators for the U7, U9/10, and U11/12 age groups (boys and girls): These individuals may be involved with team selection. They also provide direction and communications to coaches in each age group.
  • Equipment: Coordinate the ordering of all equipment. Maintain an inventory. Coordinate coaches bags and delivery of equipment for all coaches.
  • Clothing: Coordinate the inventory, ordering and sale of merchandise through the clothing stand and the website. Without a volunteer, NYS will miss out on a significant funding source.

June is turning out to be a busy month for fundraisers to help renovate the Middle School fields. Please support the field renovation project through these and future field fundraisers:

  • A bake sale will take place this Saturday, June 6th from 2-5:30pm at the Taunton Boys and Girls Club Lewis Park fields. A number of parents have donated both baked goods and beverages with proceeds going to the fields. While there, come watch our travel teams as they compete in South Coast play. Directions to Lewis Park can be found at the NYS website under "Fields and Directions".
  • Four free tickets to a future Breakers game of the winner's choice are planned to be raffled off at the NYS Night at the Boston Breakers.
  • Tuesday June 23rd will be NYS night at the Chateau Restaurant in Norton. A special ticket will be sent out via email in a few weeks to all NYS members. NYS will receive 20% from all checks with this ticket attached.

Finally, tickets are still available for NYS Night at the Boston Breakers on Sunday, June 14th at 6pm.
