AYSO Charlotte Region 605 - Youth Soccer

Setup / Breakdown Crew

AYSO is an all volunteer organization... and it requires lots of work to pull off a great experience for the kids and families... especially on game days. Every season, we've got parents who want to help, want to be a part of the team, but aren't sure they want to coach or referee a game... but there are plenty of other opportunities to make an impact.

One of the quickest and easiest is to be a part of our Setup Crew or Breakdown Crew on a Saturday. You only sign up for a week at a time.

The Setup Crew arrives at the fields at 8am (kids with early games are already supposed to be there at 8:30, so its not a huge stretch for parents) and help with last-minute setup tasks such as putting out corner flags on fields, moving sand bags, setting up pop-up goals for mini-kickers, putting goals in place for games, or any other last minute needs. Its generally less than 30 minutes work - and especially if your child has an early game that week.. its a quick win. Setup Crew reports to the equipment closet (that is on the opposite side of the bathroom building) to pick up equipment.

The Breakdown Crew goes into action after games are over. Most of our fields are done around 12:30-1. The Breakdown Crew picks up pop-up goals, collects and bundles corner flags at each field, and picks up any signs that were put out, and returns everything to the equipment closet (that is on the opposite side of the bathroom building) making sure everything is ready to go for the next Saturday's Setup Crew. Its a perfect opportunity if your child is playing in the "late" game - and cleanup normally only takes 15-20 minutes.

We've got detailed maps and instructions for where everything should be placed for setup, and picked up for cleanup... a copy is posted on the inside of the door to the equipment room, and you can grab a copy here as well.

Please consider volunteering for a couple of shifts on the Setup or Breakdown Crews... its such a huge help for the league, and an easy way to be a part of a successful team.
