Marietta Soccer Classic

Posted by Ben Schenkel at Jul 15, 2012 5:00PM PDT ( 0 Comments )
This tournament is run by the Marietta Soccer League and is the main/only fundraiser outside of team sponsorships that the rec league does for operating costs. All proceeds from the tournament go back to the rec league general fund each year to offset maintenance costs at the fields, to help keep our registration fees competitive with other area leagues, and upgrade our facilities.        

 The Classic is in need of Volunteer helpers.

Some ways to get involved and help out are:

 Field Marshall: 

These people work the weekend of the tournament in 1 hour shifts. You will oversee four fields. You are our eyes to make sure all is going well or to call a tournament committee member for help in the event of some need at the fields and to be the collector of game score cards. You will keep the cards at the tent and Todd Fournier will come to the tent and get all scores after each game time slot.

 Field Prep: 

We will also be spending hours at the fields the week before completing many tasks getting the complex ready for the weekend. We have to layout, paint, mow all the fields. Weed eat, tie nets, place goals, get correct field numbers signs on the goals, etc. Any help during that week would appreciated.   It takes many, many man hours to get the complex ready.

There are other options available for helping out as well.

One hour of help, the weekend of the tournament is a huge help. Any amount of time you can offer is greatly appreciated. 

 If you are interested in helping, please email the tournament director,

Eric Keffer, email
