Volunteer Policy & Information

The Yale Area Football League is a non-profit organization which depends upon volunteers to function successfully. Thanks to those who give generously of their time, the YAFL has become one of the largest, and arguably, most successful youth sports clubs in our area.

Together with registration fees, families are asked to pay a $50 volunteer fee per child. Families have three options regarding their volunteer fee:

  • Volunteer Option: Anyone over the age of 16 years of age may volunteer for one of the various volunteer jobs that are posted in the volunteer program link found below. The entire $50 volunteer fee can be earned back by completing one  YAFL approved volunteer job. Examples of jobs include: 2-3 hour shift at picture day, combine, equipment returns, year end celebration, homecoming parade etc. Please click the link below for signup.com to see a complete list of YAFL approved volunteer jobs and their descriptions.

  • Coaching/Team Parent option: Volunteer to be a coach, assistant coach or team parent. No coaching experience is required. Please contact YAFL at bulldogsyafl@gmail.com.

OR

  • Donation Option: Donate their fee to the YAFL.

 

Volunteer Option:

All shifts are available for sign up through SignUp.com. All shifts are provided on first-come, first-served basis. Once a volunteer has signed up for a job, a confirmation will be sent out via the email provided. This email will contain job specific instruction which includes: check-in time, location, the name and contact of designated event coordinator and attire suggestions. Depending up signup date, a minimum of 1 reminder will be sent the day before a scheduled event

Here’s how it works in 3 easy steps:

  1. Click this link to go to our invitation page on : 
  2. Enter your email address: (You will NOT need to register an account on SignUp.com)
  3. Sign up! Choose your spots – SignUp.com will send you an automated confirmation and reminders. Easy!

Note: SignUp.com does not share your email address with anyone.

.

No volunteer sign-up will occur at the job site. All volunteers are required to sign in and out of the provided list. Volunteers also need to confirm the name and information provided is correct

All volunteers must either contact YAFL via email or phone in the event they cannot make a shift. If you do not give notice that you will miss your shift, you will forfeit your refund. YAFL has a limited number of shifts for its families and by repeatedly not showing up for your shift, other families lose the opportunity to participate in the volunteer/refund option.
