CVSC Volunteer Program FAQs

Castro Valley Soccer Club is greatly dependent on the volunteer support of our membership to help enable a positive soccer experience for all of our players and families. In return for these volunteer efforts, the club offers to reimburse the entire volunteer fee.

is that you volunteer 3hrs for each child registered. On the Dibs website you will see the column titled "credits", one credit equals one hour.
