Recreational Volunteer Information
Texas Rush Soccer Club is one of the largest and growing, volunteer based sports clubs in Houston. Your volunteer efforts are appreciated and much needed to make our Club the terrific success it is. Throughout each season, we need volunteers to fill many different roles for a minimum of two hours. With over 1,200 players, parental support is of the utmost importance.
Field Patrols are a vital role for Texas Rush and league requirement to ensure its Saturday games are a positive experience for players, families, and guests. For a two hour time period, you are asked to monitor positive and/or negative behavior on the fields. Throughout the season we need 100 field patrols; ten per game day.

Head Coach/Assistant Coach
Under the direction of Texas Rush Technical Director, Don Gemmell, Directors of Recreational Coaches, and Director of Coaches, you will be educating your team the basics of soccer skills, sportsmanship, and fun. Depending on the age division, you will be responsible for one or two (two for the older age groups) practices per week and games primarily on Saturday and occasionally on Sunday. You will be required to attend 1-2 coaches meetings and it is recommended to attend the coaches licensing clinics offered through out the year.
You are the communication liaison between the coaches and the players and parents. Depending on each individual coach, you may be asked to call or email the team in regard to cancellation of practices and games due to inclement weather or scheduling conflicts of the coaches. Some coaches prefer to attend to these matters themselves, therefore, please ask your coach what he or she prefers. Additionally, you need to arrange the pick up of trophies and Fall pictures for distribution to your team, organize the end of season team party and collect money for coaches presents. You may be asked to make a team roster, snack schedule for weekly games, and pass out any pertinent information Texas Rush has provided you for distribution to your team. Again, ask your coach how he or she wants to handle the above mentioned items, as some coaches tend to these matters themselves.
