Community Service Opportunity for HS Students

Dear Parents:

The GDYSC is reaching out to let you know that this spring, we are again offering a community service opportunity for high school sophomores, juniors and seniors (minimum age of 16 years on April 9th, 2016) that reside in Groton and Dunstable.  The opportunity involves assisting the GDYSC with operating the concessions stand at Cow Pond Brook Field during league events on Saturdays from 8:30AM until 5:30PM.  The opportunities will exist from Saturday, April 9th until Saturday, June 4th (excluding Memorial Day weekend). Students can earn up to thirty-four hours of community service credit while making a difference in the community.  Our plan is to offer two shifts per week (8:30 - 12:45 and 12:45 - 5:30).  If you have high school students that are interested or have questions, please respond directly to this email. We are looking for volunteers starting next Saturday, April 9th, so please respond as soon as possible if you are interested.

Mass Youth Soccer Adult Volunteer and CORI Registration Process

Coaches and Volunteers:

 

If you plan on coaching or volunteering in the spring in the GDYSC, you will have to register as an Adult Volunteer with Mass Youth Soccer as well as update your CORI registration. To register as an Adult Volunteer, follow these steps:

1) Go to www.mayouthsoccer.org

2) Click on the Administrators Tab on the top navigation bar and click on “CORI Policies and Procedures”

3) Scroll down in the main document to “New Adult and CORI Registration Procedures – 8/14/15” which is highlighted in yellow

4) In that paragraph, click on “ADULT AND CORI REGISTRATIONS”

5) You will come to a page with the title “Adult Registration and CORI Registration”

6) Scroll down to the blue highlighted text and click on the line that says “Click here to go to the Adult Registration portal”

7) This will take you to a page that states at the top “Welcome to the Mass Youth Soccer Registration and CORI Registration”

8) For those that have completed the CORI registration process with Mass Youth Soccer since July 18th, 2013, scroll down to the blue button that says “Adult Registration Returning User – Register Now” and click on that button

9) For those that have never completed the CORI registration process with Mass Youth Soccer or did it prior to July 18th, 2013, scroll down to the green button that says “Adult Registration New Users – Register Now” and click on that button.

10) Follow the instructions for creating a new username and password and complete the registration process (including uploading a photograph of yourself).

11) You will get an email confirmation of your Adult Volunteer registration

If you do not get a valid CORI registration date in the email confirmation, please click on the attached link in that email to submit a CORI registration.  The link is http://ma-cori.affinitysoccer.com/reg/index.asp?sessionguid

  1. Fill out the form and be sure to enter the name of the organization as “Groton-Dunstable Youth Soccer”
  2. Make sure to enter the last six digits of your social security number
  3. Click “Submit” at the bottom of the form
  4. Make sure to print out the form as well - you will need to bring it with you to the GDYSC Coaches meeting so that we can verify your form against your driver's license and co-sign the form.

If you did get a valid CORI registration date in the email confirmation, you are all set and do not need to do anything else.

Mass Youth Soccer will update an on-line Google docs form that shows all of the coaches in our club that have registered and been cleared to coach and the date they are authorized until.  

Let me know if you have questions.
