Become a Coach
CR United has developed special training to help volunteers who may have little or no soccer experience quickly gain the age-appropriate knowledge and skills they need to become outstanding coaches. You can volunteer for this role during the registration for your player. Coaches receive a team Coach shirt and volunteer requirements are waived.

FUNDRAISING: Hands of the Kingdom
NOTE: *Participation in this program is NOT required and does not fulfill the CR United club required volunteer hours.*
Hands of the Kingdom (HOK) is a non-profit group that organizes concessions sales at various events around the Twin Cities. Some venues require training, others do not. The amounts earned per event/venue vary. Once you have worked, you submit a form to request disbursement and the check is sent once the funds have been donated. This will not impact any taxable income for you, as, HOK is non-profit and the funds are going to another non-profit (CR United).
Below are multiple opportunities for fundraising. Please direct any questions to Adam (Hands of the Kingdom) via the clicked link.
CR United Soccer Club is not the coordinator or organizer of these events. They are opportunities managed by Hands of the Kingdom and can help reduce the cost of soccer registration fees, helping everybody play soccer by reducing financial burdens.
The game time for November 9th has been announced as an 11 am game, which means an 8 am report time and will be done by mid-afternoon. It's expected to be a busy game and volunteers are needed!
The final game of the season will be on Saturday, November 30th. The time is still TBA for that game.
All Target Center events are posted through the link. However, HOK is mainly a supporting role for Totino Grace. If you sign up for events and there are eventually no spots available, they will be deleted in advance. If Target Center has additional volunteer needs, HOK will send updates on the opportunities. The best way to gauge availability and interest in advance is if you sign up for events on the signup link.
There continue to be opportunities to fill in for Vikings games and other US Bank stadium events. All dates/times are listed via the link. Dates will also be added to the signup, with many High School tournaments in the coming weeks.
Stay tuned for potential staffing needs at various U of M venues as the basketball and hockey seasons get underway.
Information should be provided by early 2020 about training for next spring/summer at Allianz Stadium and Target Field. As we enter the new year, HOK will provide more information on potential commitments for upcoming seasons.
