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.

Currently we are seeking volunteers for all coaching positions. If you're interested in helping out this way, please head on over to the Registration page and fill out an application.

Team Parent

The team parent is key to ensuring parents/guardians are up-to-date on the latest information, coordinating volunteers, and general team support.

Game Day Positions

Needed to ensure the success of each game, these positions are limited to just the day of the game. Work with your Team Parent to sign up for these during each game.


Needed for home games, the concessions volunteers help ensure the concessions stand runs smoothly. Each team should provide help in the concessions booth, which can be before or after your child's game so you don't miss out. We also need help with morning set-up and evening break-down.

Chain Gang

Needed for home games, the chain gang consists of 3 people. Two people hold the yard markers for the referees. The third person holds the down marker. The chain gang moves up and down the field with the yard markers as directed by the referees.

Team Photographer / Videographer

Takes pictures or video during games for the team, shares with team via private Facebook group or TeamSnap for other teammates and webmaster use.

Other Team Support Roles

Plan a Team Outing

Organize and plan a team-building event for your child’s team during the year – could be as simple as pizza at a park.

Plan end-of-season event

Work with the team parent to organize end-of-season party and gifts with the team parent.
