Key Volunteer Roles to be filled

Welcome to our NDA Cross Country family. We are blessed to have so many dedicated parents who help with our large team. Our Parent Group motto is “Many Hands Make Light Work.”

We have found that not only are we helping the CC team, but we are forming a wonderful family atmosphere at NDA.

Below is a summary of volunteer roles to be filled in 2017. If you are willing to fill one of these roles, please use the “sign-up genius” link found at the top of this page to do so.

There is something for everyone. Some roles take just a few minutes a few times a season, and other roles allow you to get very involved in the functioning of the team.   We encourage all parents to visit the “NDA CC Parent Volunteer Sign-Up Genius” and sign up for one of the areas of “Day of Meet Help” or “Race Help”.   There are many opportunities to help on race day; you will still get to see your runner race and will be a big help to the team.

Thank you so much!   Questions?     Contact:   Sarah Stumpf   Parent Volunteer Coordinator     email: rcssjf@msn.com     cell: 920-619-7640
