The success of YYTF is heavily dependent on volunteerism. We respectfully request that a representative from each tackle football and cheer participant’s family volunteer their time for a few hours.There are a variety of volunteer opportunities that will be made available to the families of participants through our Dibs system. This system will allow volunteers to choose a time and volunteer position that is convenient for their family. A link to this system can be found below.
It is each volunteer's responsibility to sign in at the volunteer book located at the concession stand on the day that you volunteer. The volunteer book is used to verify that your family has completed its volunteer duties. If your family has completed volunteer service for the season, your $150 deposit will be returned to you at the time of equipment return. If you are unable to complete the volunteer service hours, the $150 deposit will not be refunded to you.
Follow the links below for information on how to claim volunteer hours for this season.
