Member of the Editorial Board

The Redactie is a fun group of creative people who provide fun and informative expressions on the website and social media. Always looking for the best news, enthusiastically writing blogs about indoor, beach and sitting volleyball, often present to shoot photos and videos for social media. And that nice group (now consisting of Matthijs, Rianne and Milene) is looking for backup!

What are you going to do?

We are looking for someone who likes to write content, think along with social media posts, translate blogs and help make videos and photos for stories and posts on Friday evenings. Think of conducting interviews with members, writing and translating blogs about volleyball-related matters and working as a social media reporter on Friday evenings. This will cost you about 1 – 3 hours a week.
So do you understand WordPress, are you creative and do you have a few hours a week free to dedicate yourself to the club? Sign up quickly via the button below!

For this position you will receive € 100 volunteer compensation* per season.


Member of the Sponsorship Committee

Since September 2022, we have a new Sponsorship Plan 2022-2026, written by Matthijs in collaboration with SponsorVisie, Iwan Banens, and the Board. To further implement this plan, we are looking for enthusiastic members who want to assist Matthijs in this effort.

What will you do?

Together with Matthijs, actively search for sponsors! And of course, maintain contact with the sponsor. Searching for new sponsors requires some time and effort. Additionally, it is important that you can convey a story well so that potential sponsors get a good idea of the sponsorship opportunities and benefits for the company.

In terms of time, it doesn’t require much effort. You can do everything from your PC and occasionally visit the sponsor or have the sponsor come to the club.

For this position, you will receive a volunteer fee of €100 per season*

Interested? Sign up here.


Trainers wanted!

We are still looking for coaches/trainers for several senior teams and some youth teams. You should be available once a week to give training and preferably also available for coaching. Volleyball knowledge is a requirement, but above all, we are looking for energy and motivation. And if you’re interested but have never done it before, we can help you get started. Let us know, we have enough experienced trainers who can help you out.

We are also looking for coaches for our youth teams. Would you like to give training to a youth team? Then please sign up by sending an email to the Youth TC. Coaching our youth teams is also very important.

Would you like to contribute as a trainer and/or coach for Sovicos? Let us know! You can also do this as a duo job with someone else.

You will receive compensation* for this role as well. The amount depends on your experience, the team, and the total number of training sessions.


Assistance needed for the Audit Committee

Every year, one of the two members of the Audit Committee is replaced (you can do it for a maximum of 2 years), and for this reason, Sovicos is looking for one more member for the committee to assist with the audit of the current season.

What will you do?

Together with the other member of the Audit Committee, you will review the bookkeeping of the Treasurer from the past season. You will check whether the amounts calculated by the treasurer are correct and ask questions about specific numbers, invoices, and/or anything that catches your attention. It’s like an audit of the Treasurer.

How much time will it take?

One evening (1-2 hours) for preparation (which questions will we ask), one evening with the Treasurer where questions will be asked and answers+information will be given (2 hours), and typing the report (maximum 1 hour). The total time commitment is approximately 4-5 hours for one season.
