NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY -- Believe it or not, that is true for most of the positions at the Branford Soccer Club. BSC is a volunteer organization, and our success is contingent upon how many parents are willing to give a little of their time to make their daughter or son’s experience a more positive one. But as you'll see from the list below, soccer expertise is not a requirement.
 
Please read the list to see what positions the club has, and hopefully you’ll find some spot for yourself. The more people who volunteer, the easier everyone's job becomes. If you do find something, please contact President Cenk Sahin ( ). The club will appreciate it, but more importantly, your kids will appreciate it.
