West Seattle Junior Football & Cheer started in 2007 with a handful of volunteers committed to developing an inclusive football program for the youth in West Seattle.
We are still a 100 percent volunteer organization.
Thank you to everyone who has volunteered as our coaches, team parents, chain-team, clock keepers, concessions help, and board members. Every hand helps.
Below is a list of open positions and volunteer opportunities. It's OK to team up and split a position with another person. Voting board members' children play for free. Nonvoting board members' children receive the coach's discount.
If you are interested in volunteering, or receiving more information, please contact Annette Phillips, the board volunteer manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
