CRUSADERS IS ALWAYS LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEERS
Crusaders Soccer Club depends upon its member volunteers.
Each year, hundreds of members step up to the responsibility of serving the athletic and social interests of our children and young soccer players. This is what has allowed Crusaders to grow so substantially over the past five decades.
We invite you to contribute your time, energy, and ideas to the health of Crusaders. As a club, we commit to providing you with the support you need to take on a volunteer role. It’s fun, rewarding, and best of all it adds to the vitality of our children and our community.
