Field Marshals Needed For Youth Spring Leagues

We are looking for two more adult field marshals to help run our youth spring leagues. These shifts will be up to 8 hours a day on Saturdays, but quite often it will actually be fewer hours. Field marshals will be paid an hourly rate. The season will start mid-March and wrap up in mid-May. First aid training is preferred. Please contact youth.director@discnw.org if you are interested.
