This includes football, volleyball, boys’ soccer, boys’ and girls’ cross country, boys’ and girls’ golf, and cheerleading. The meeting will take place on Monday, May 23 starting at 6:00 pm in db20160506 gym at Williamsville High School. After the db20160506 session is finished in the gym, each sport will separate and conduct sport specific meetings.

As a reminder, student-athletes will need updated physicals in order to participate in their desired sport.

Volunteer Opportunities


United Cerebral Palsy – Life without Limits Day Camp - The United Cerebral Palsy (UCP) offers three different and fun-filled camps for children ages 6 to 21 years old with the support of the United Way.  One camp is the Life without Limits Day Camp.  Volunteers are paired with a child who has a disability and accompany that child throughout the day at the camp.  As the campers renew friendships, participate in craft activities, utilize the UCP computer lab and go into the community on field trips, the volunteer is a constant companion for the camper.  Field trips will be educational and recreational, including visits to historical sites, behind the scenes tours of their favorite stores, and bowling.  A volunteer can sign up for just one week, certain days, or all summer.  The Life without Limits Camp meets at the UCP center for students 6 to 21 years old who have any type of disability.  Camp runs Monday thru Friday from 8:30 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. starting on June 20 and ending on August 5. If you have any questions, please see Mr. Martens.


United Cerebral Palsy – Overnight Camp - The United Cerebral Palsy (UCP) offers three different and fun-filled camps for children ages 6 to 21 years old with the support of the United Way.  One camp is the Overnight Camp.  Volunteers are paired one-on-one with a camper with a disability.  The camp is a unique social opportunity for campers and attendees to enjoy crafts, swimming, interacting with special guests, and meeting new friends.  The volunteer “Buddy” is a constant companion throughout camp for all activities.  This three day, two-night camp is the only one of its kind in central Illinois.  The UCP Overnight Camp is held in two sessions, one for campers 6-13 years old on Monday, June 6, starting at 8:00 a.m., thru Wednesday, June 8, ending at 11:00 a.m.  The other camp is for campers 14-21 years old on Wednesday, June 8, starting at 6:00 p.m., thru Friday, June 10, ending at 4:00 p.m.  Both camps will be held at the Springfield Christian Assembly Campground.  Volunteers can sign up for one or both sessions of camp.  If you have any questions, please see Mr. Martens.


Williamsville Community Foundation — Quarter Auctions - For anyone needing community service hours, the Williamsville Community Foundation is looking for volunteers to assist with their Quarter Auctions to benefit different charities.  They need help on the second Wednesday of every month from 5:00-6:00 p.m. to set up chairs at the Williamsville Community Center, and then they will need help on the second Thursday of every month from 6:30-9:30 p.m. to work concessions during the auctions.  Please see Mr. Martens if you are interested or have any other questions.

The first opportunity is to help ensure bags are ready for distribution to local households. We have 32,000 bags that need to be folded and bundled for distribution. Hours for volunteering for this opportunity at Central Illinois Foodbank are Monday-Thursday 8am-4pm, and Wednesday 8am-7pm.
