Volunteer Information

Glacier Peak Youth Football Association is a 100% volunteer run organization. Volunteers are critical in order to have a successful season! Everything happens because of parent volunteers – none of the positions are paid, even board members. We ask each family to volunteer 4 hours per child, or pay the opt-out fee of $150 during registration.
