Volunteer Policy and Game Day Position Information

The O’Fallon Little Panthers is a non-for-profit, volunteer organization, funded by registration fees, fundraising, and community donations. Volunteers are essential to sustaining our youth sports programs. The organization is dependent on parent and community involvement to make everything happen. By volunteering you are setting a great example for our participants and community. OLP works hard to make efficient use of your volunteer hours and strives to make it an enjoyable experience. Please take a moment to review the following volunteer requirements.

Volunteer Requirements:

To make volunteer work more equitable for all participants, a $50 deposit per family will be required. This volunteer deposit is in addition to the cost to play the sport and must be turned in at registration. The volunteer deposit will be returned during equipment turn in providing volunteer requirements have been completed and equipment has been returned. Your deposit must be received by the organization before your participant can receive equipment. 

Each family IS REQUIRED to volunteer a minimum of 4 hours for the first child, plus 2 hours each
additional child
- Scholarship families ARE REQUIRED to volunteer a minimum of 10 hours for your first child plus
2 additional hours each additional child.


Who can volunteer? Any family member 16 years of age or older can volunteer for any Little Panthers event to satisfy the family volunteer requirement. Game time keepers must be 18 years or older as required by Tri-County Football League.

clock according to the rules of the game.
