Volunteer News

Volunteer Jobs Update

New and exciting changes for this season!

Our Division Coordinator has assigned the volunteer jobs for ALL parishes. This has streamlined the volunteer assignments for all teams and also brings notable changes.

Our volunteer shifts are for the duration of the meet. We had been the only parish that had split every shift and now we are consistent with the other teams. We will still have some half shifts, but most of our shifts are from the beginning of the meet to until the event closes.

Where is the Middle Shift?
The new assignments did not include any middle shifts. So far we only have one meet with a middle shift, Meet #2 and hopefully Meet#3.

What is a Middle Shift?
The Away Side of the track where either the boys or girls run the 50m/100m simultaneously with the Home Side of the track.

How does this affect you?
With no middle shift, this has reduced our volunteer requirement 5 shifts to 4 shifts (equals 2 meets in new format). But, if we regain those middle shifts, we will need volunteers to fill them.  

Do I really have to volunteer ALL Day?
You only work until your event closes. In past seasons, parents would sign up for a double shift and split it. Ygnacio Valley High School will also have the “Rent a Student”, where you can pay a high school track student to work for you. This is a fundraiser for their track team. I will send more info about renting a student when it becomes available.

When and how do I sign up?
Sign Up Genius is set to go live this Friday at 6 am for ALL the meets. Look for Sign Up Genius emails with a link to each meet.

Thank you for donating your time and talent. CYO Track and Field is 100% volunteer fueled and would not be possible without your support.

God Bless You,
