Roles for Event Volunteers are determined by need and season. The best Event Volunteers are ones who are enthusiastic, patient, and flexible. Familiarity with a sport is a plus, but not at all required. We provide training on sporting rules and regulations, but the real success comes from you. It’s your presence and support that enhances our athletes’ experience and there is nothing more important.  Start your volunteer journey today by reviewing the opportunities below and click the corresponding link to register.

Register as an individual, or better yet gather your colleagues, friends and family and volunteer as a group.
