We are so excited to offer the Volunteer Coaching program at American Allstars! This program is being offered exclusively to our Xcel Team members ages 13-16 years old. The goal of this program is for the girls to act as a helper to the coaches and students so that transitions run smoothly and classes are more fun for everyone! Any volunteer hours may be used towards those needed for school or other organizations.
Responsibilities include helping students get to the appropriate classes, leading warm-ups, being familiar with lesson plans and station set up, dismissing classes, and having a fun and encouraging attitude. Volunteers may also be asked to assist a student on a low balance beam, bent arm hang on the rings, or assist them on other upright skills. NO spotting will be allowed where the student is upside down.
This is to be treated like it is a job and professionalism is expected of the Volunteers. Volunteers are required to wear their own American Allstars clothing, use appropriate verbal communication and body language, be on-time for their shift, enjoy working and interacting with children, and have a fun personality. If you do not like to work with children or are not comfortable acting silly, then this may not be the gig for you!
Team members that meet the requirements will be eligible to sign up for shifts on a first come first serve basis. Once they have agreed to work this shift, then they are responsible to show up or have another volunteer cover their hours if they are unable to fulfill their commitment. Once a shift is taken, we will plan on having a helper that evening, so it is crucial that someone shows up. Volunteers are solely responsible for communicating with management (Coach Amy or Coach Cortney) if they have any issues, concerns, or other questions or circumstances.
Part of this experience is to teach life lessons and work place responsibilities. It is up to the Volunteer to sign up for their shifts and to communicate with management. Parents cannot sign their student up for volunteer hours or call them in if they cannot make a shift they signed up for. This type of communication from parents will not be accepted and can result in dismissal from the Volunteer program.
