Urban Rec is looking for you!
We are presently looking for volunteer Event Coordinators for our upcoming leagues. Sports include outdoor soccer, floor hockey, basketball, indoor soccer, multisport, flag football and indoor volleyball.
Event Coordinators get to be a special part of our Urban Rec team, and are influential and integral in helping to make our leagues better!
There is a large selection of locations/nights of league play to choose from. Please contact League Manager Jason Margolus at [email protected] for more details!
ECs roles are compensated with an honorarium and come with some great perks!
What do ECs do?
Event Coordinators' roles and responsibilities are to supervise and monitor play in our leagues and tournaments. Our Event Coordinators facilitate a positive and social atmosphere in all of our activities. EC's must be outgoing, social and energetic. They must also provide their own transportation to and from venues.
EC's volunteer one night per week per season (although some EC's volunteer 2 or more nights). For every night that they EC, they receive a free night of play in one of our other leagues! They also receive an honorarium which is based on the amount of teams in the league that they volunteer at (with the exception of volleyball ECs).
We encourage our participants to EC the same sport for which they play, or a sport they are very familiar with. EC’s may not play on the same night which they volunteer on (except for our volleyball ECs, who almost all play on the same night that they EC).
Each league is night-specific; for example, this means that you would volunteer 3-4 hours each Monday for a Monday league for the duration of the league. Most leagues run 10-12 weeks depending on the league.
