Class A Volunteers

Class A Volunteers are volunteers who have regular, close physical contact with athletes, are in a position of authority or supervision with athletes, are in a position of trust of athletes, and/or handle substantial amounts of cash or other assets of the program. Class A volunteer opportunities range from event management and coaching, to fundraising and volunteering on the day of an event. In most cases, experience is not needed and training will be provided no matter what role you are in.

Note: If you already know the team you will be connecting with, you are welcome to start your background check. If you do not know which team you will be connecting with, please wait until you hear from us before starting your background check.

For more information on applying to be a Class A volunteer, please email Susan Greenwood, Volunteer Program Coordinator.
