Volunteer Info

We Need Volunteers!

Volunteerism is absolutely critical to the success and operations of NSC.  We greatly appreciate your support in volunteering for the many different opportunities available. In addition to current volunteer expectations, any additional time is welcomed and appreciated. All members assist in the success of Norski Soccer Club!

The NSC Board of Directors has changed how volunteer fees will be charged:

  • Volunteer fees will NOT be charged upfront.

  • Families are required to volunteer a minimum of 4-8 hours between June 1st - May 31st of each playing year.

    • If a family has one player in the 9U-14/15U age group and another in the High School age group; the family would by default only be obligated to the hours of the player in the 9U-14/15U age group or a minimum of 8 hours.

  • Volunteer hours are not carried over to future years

  • Partial completion of the required hours will result in the full buyout fee for the age group.

  • By choosing "NO" in the registration system for 9U and older teams Norski SC will automatically assess the Buyout Fee to next year's registration fees.

NSC Family Volunteer Expectations:

  • 15U - 19U Families are expected to complete a minimum of 4 hours of volunteer time per soccer season. Volunteer Requirement Fee charged going into the next season if not completed = $50.00.

  • 9U - 14/15U Families are expected to complete a minimum of 8 volunteer hours per soccer year (4 hours / season). Volunteer Requirement Fee charged going into the next season = $100.00 (or $50.00 for Spring Only Season).

  • In-house Kickers Academy/Recreational and Micro Families are not charged or required to complete any volunteer hours, however volunteering is strongly encouraged and needed. 

    • Parent Coaches Needed: The continued success of growth and development at these age groups depends on its parent volunteers to help coach teams. Please help coach or assistant coach if you are willing and able.

Volunteer Opportunities

Parent Coaches & Managers

Norski Soccer Club welcomes parents to participate in assisting with coaching players.   Parent coaches assist with practice sessions and game play.  U9 - U19 require certified licensing at various levels. 

Team Managers are needed for U9 - U19 each year.  Team managers coordinate player availability, practice and game-day reminders, coordinate tournaments and outreach to opponents as needed.


"Paid" Volunteer Field Workers

The Norski Soccer Club is looking for a few “paid” volunteer field workers each year running Spring through Fall seasons who are willing to work at the NSC soccer fields.  Volunteers must pay fees at the beginning of the year with registration. Once required hours are worked, fees will be reimbursed for registration and coaching fees for one child.  

Job duties and responsibilities include: laying out and painting fields, moving goals, bleachers and benches as needed, aerating and watering turf, painting lines in the parking lot, landscaping and up-keep of facilities.  Training will be given.

If interested in participating, please review the following document for more information on the process.

UW Chairbacks

NSC spends 10-15 hours at Camp Randall installing seat backs and cushions for Badger season ticket holders in one section of the stadium. The seat backs remain in place until after the final home football game and then we return to the stadium to remove them.

This fundraiser raises approximately $2,000 per year.  It's a fantastic way to take care of your volunteer hours & earn a bit of money to help Norski Soccer Club for player development. The more people we have, the faster it all gets done!!

Chairback Install occurs early August & Removal occurs late Nov - early Dec.
