SUMMER 2021 Volunteer Needs
WE NEED YOUR HELP!
As a result of the current restrictions imposed by the Government of New Brunswick to reduce the spread of COVID19, youth sport has had to make modifications to its programming in order to ensure the health and safety of its participants and spectators during the Return to Play process.
As we continue working through the recovery phases of COVID19 in the province of New Brunswick, the FDSA has been working on its Return to Play plan. This plan is being designed to comply with guidelines and recommendations provided by government health authorities and Soccer NB.
Our Return to Play Plan necessitates the involvement of more volunteers than our traditional Summer programming. In addition to Coaches, we will require extra volunteers in order to manage the required guidelines at each facility. These positions are identified as follows:
