My time at CSSC has been beyond my expectations.
When I first started I was very thoroughly trained and learned the ropes from experienced GC's. As I transitioned into running games solo, I found a new sense of confidence. In my role as a GC I have the opportunity to work with many different types of people and work together to solve issues that may arise during a game. The mentality around solving issues at the CSSC is choose what option is the most fair and displays the highest sportsmanship. Very rarely are their issues that require disciplinary action making the role of the GC very fun.
The main duties assigned to me are those that facilitate the game for our players. I am responsible to get all equipment ready and make them available to our players. In addition to set up, I monitor games to encourage teams to play with a fun first attitude. Occasionally, issues arise where I need to step in to ensure sportsmanship isn't compromised. Generally, players understand and respect the rules creating an opportunity for easy conflict resolution. The social aspect of the game is what truly makes working at the CSSC unique. Players on all teams often joke around and work together to have fun. Since starting work, many players greet me by first name and have even asked me to join their teams.
The main take away for me as a GC has been honing my conflict resolution and proactive problem solving abilities. I've completed four seasons as a GC and I have seen major personal development from one season to another. The confidence I have found in being more assertive to ensure fair play and that everyone is enjoying their time has influenced other areas of my life. In addition to building confidence, I have found the performance based atmosphere at CSSC to truly reward those who put in the extra effort.
Working as a GC with CSSC has been an amazing experience. You get to meet a ton of people (both players and other GC's) who are all in interested in the same thing, SPORTS!
Through the role of a GC I've had the opportunity to try a multitude of sports that I might not otherwise have had (dodgeball, volleyball, kickball, floor hockey). The hours are very accommodating to other commitments (school, day time jobs, life). Being a GC I feel like I'm part of the CSSC family, even when you shoot your boss in the head in archery tag! It truly is the best part time job.
Now you can GET PAID to GET IN THE GAME! Becoming a GC will allow you to get involved and meet new people in the league each night. This is a great opportunity to be a leader and help coordinate CSSC league nights!
