What does Volunteering mean to ERGS?

Volunteers are critical because they help Elk River Girls Soccer reach their goals and have a memorable season. Not only that, but when you donate your time and skills to a booster club or an event, you are helping the students and school succeed.

We need each family to complete 3 Dibs credits (per family, not per child) during the season. Most shifts are 2-4 hours. Some Dibs are worth more than others.

Families are responsible for monitoring their email or checking the Dibs page for available shifts regularly.

If you have questions regarding Dibs, email Kersti Demar at 


  • While we accept donations to the program, we are not collecting volunteer checks in lieu of dibs this year.


Q:  What does "Dibs" mean?
A:  Dibs is a page on our website that manages all of our volunteer sessions.  In order to volunteer you must as a registered member of the site go to this page and get Dibs on the open volunteer sessions before they are taken by someone else.

Q: Where does the money go?
A: The booster club is made of all volunteers.  There are no salaries nor is any member paid for their services.  All of the dollars go toward enhancing the Elk River Girls Soccer program wherever possible.  The Booster Club supports the Elk River Girls Soccer teams in many ways. 

  • Coach salaries (HS fees)
  • Uniforms, tryout shirts, motto shirts, alumni shirts (Booster donations)
  • Assist with busing costs for out of town games (HS/Booster)
  • Provide meals before away games and after home games (Booster donations)
  • Host an annual banquet, meal as well as any awards, photography, decorations, etc. (Booster donations)
  • Cover any costs for Parents Day, Youth Day, Senior Day, etc. (Booster donations)
  • Varsity Team banner for the ERHS common area. (Booster donations)
  • Sponsor Banners and other printed programs.(Booster donations)

And whatever else we can do to support our girls and make a memorable season for them. It is our mission to boost the program any way we can.
