VOLUNTEER JOB DESCRIPTIONS (subject to change as needed)

Football and cheerleading is a family commitment. The Brighton Junior Bruins is a 100% volunteer organization, and therefore depends entirely on the coordinated efforts of volunteers (you). Board members and coaches contribute countless hours of time and energy to make the football and cheer season a success. As such, the Brighton Junior Bruins require the support of all athletes' families to make the season happen.

Volunteering consists of mandatory Game Day Positions and Additional Support opportunities.

Athletes’ families are required to fill between 2 to 4 Game Day Positions per athlete per season, depending on enrollment and the needs of the league.* Each home game requires approximately 42 volunteers in addition to the coaches and board members. 

Additional Support Positions are needed in addition to the required Game Day Positions, to prepare and execute special functions/events such as Team Parent, Picture Day, and the End of Season Banquet.

The BJB Board Volunteer Coordinator will hold sign-up sessions for Game Day Positions once the league confirms the game day schedule. The sign up link will be emailed out to all families. 

Game Day Positions are filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

Please check in for your volunteer position 15 minutes before the start of the game. If you fail to fulfill your Game Day volunteer obligation, your child(ren) will may be held out of a game/competition on that day or a subsequent game/competition and/or may be subject to other consequences as determined by the BJB Board.

In lieu of satisfying your volunteer obligation, a parent may elect to use "buy out" option for $500 per participant. Please contact the BJB board Volunteer Coordinator for more information.
