We need your help! Houston Youth Cup is a HUGE event that needs a large number of staff and volunteers to make a tournament of this size work. This year we have over 200 teams playing across 6 locations totally over 350 games! Over the course of the weekend, Tournament HQ and Field Marshaling volunteers are critical to the success of this tournament.

The main responsibility of the Field Marshall’s position is to notify the medical staff on site of any injuries during the games. Other responsibilities include monitoring and reporting the behavior of the players, parents, coaches, and referees. Additionally, you will be required to make sure that the facilities are kept tidy and all trash is disposed of in the correct manner.

Volunteers placed at the Tournament HQ will help set-up (early shift), assist with scorecards, help answer questions from tournament participants, and assist the Tournament Site Lead at that location.

To view and sign up for a volunteer shift, please click one of the links below. If you don’t see a site that your son and/or daughter is playing at this weekend or if your son/daughter is not playing this weekend, please chose a site that is convenient for you.
