BYS Volunteer Program
The BYS Volunteer Philosophy: Use volunteers from BYS families to promote soccer in the Bemidji community, keep families engaged and involved in the entire soccer program and accomplish tasks that benefit the soccer program.
Each player (or a family member from the player’s family) pledges to accomplish at least 10 hours of volunteer time per year for the Extreme Futball Academy teams (16 hours family maximum) and at least 5 hours of volunteer time per year for the United Teams (8 hours family maximum). Click on the Sign Up Genius link to create an account and track your hours or click on the volunteer form below, track your hours and send the completed form to Cindi for verification.
