The Sequim Picklers’ Club is growing and the opportunity to serve is growing too! We are always seeking volunteers to assist with events, support a task, or take on a role longer term. Please visit this page often to see what there is to do and how you can help!
If you are interested, please send a brief email resume to Charlie Pugh at cbpugh007
The DOCO and Assistant DOCO will work with a team of volunteers to coordinate:
- weekly updates to the online calendar for all court play (beginner, novice, open, ladder, men’s, women’s, singles, leagues, etc.);
- all court play at Boys & Girls Club, Third & Fir, and Carrie Blake Park;
- all tournaments hosted by SP;
- the skill-rating process
- instruction programs (training, clinics, and developmental opportunities) for all skill levels;
- exchanges with other pickleball clubs;
- equipment maintenance (courts, lights, balls, nets, etc.) and an annual equipment inventory.
The DOCO is not expected to personally do all of the above tasks. The SP Board is looking for an individual that can effectively delegate and ensure that these tasks are satisfactorily accomplished. The DOCO may be asked to perform other duties as requested by the SP Board and agreed to in writing by the DOCO.
Sanctioned Tournament Tiger Team planners: These individuals (maximum of 3) will contact the USAPA and tournament organizers around the west coast to develop a guide for how to conduct a successful national level tournament with 8 outdoor courts. Determine how many admin personnel, referees, and support personnel are required. Recommend required logistics (how many port-a-pottys, loud speakers, water, snacks). Assess how sponsors are captured by other organizers and recommend probable Sequim sponsors. Develop an implementation time line and budget that will ensure proper prior planning and success. Review internet web based registration methodologies. Predict exactly how many registrants we should accept to be able to conduct a proper tournament over a four day period and provide a report to the SP Board. This job is expected to take about 2-3 months. (NOTE: Planned Sanctioned Tournaments: With new courts we plan to conduct about 2 annual sanctioned tournaments. These will be like no event we have conducted in the past and will require many months of planning.)
- One software researcher: This person will research stand-alone software applications suitable for keeping local tournament statistics, building round robin contests, being easy to use, and able to run on a local laptop. It must support our local tournaments and our league play. Prepare a short review of the best applications you find and provide a cost/use analysis to the SP Board. This position will last take about one month to complete.
