Volunteers Needed

The Castro Valley Soccer Club is a non-profit volunteer-run organization. The club is primarily operated and successful through the efforts of its many volunteer members.  The more volunteers we have involved, the less each volunteer needs to do.  We are in constant need of adding volunteers to replace those able bodies whose children have grown from our programs. The club is currently looking for volunteers to assist with running the soccer programs at CVSC.  If you have a little time, a positive attitude, and a desire to improve the quality of our club, please contact us to offer whatever help you can to continue our goal towards a successful youth soccer program.  Please take the time to look at the different positions we have available and contact us.
