Volunteer with Blue Devils

WHY VOLUNTEER

Volunteers are an integral part of every player’s experience and the success of the organization. Parents and students needing volunteer hours for school are always looking for ways to contribute to Club activity and growth to provide support and benefits for all the aspiring young Blue Devils players, including their own children. Volunteering gives parents a deeper understanding and appreciation for just how much work goes on behind the scenes into executing a successful season.
The Blue Devils offer a wide variety of fun and charitable events in support of initiatives like the Blue Devils Foundation that provides financial aid for families and players in need of support, and Cleats For Kids which collects and distributes used and new equipment for players locally and around the world. The Blue Devils Parents Association (BDPA) also organizes many community and Club-based events.
