Be a Day of Event Volunteer

Completing the below steps make you eligible to assist on days of events in various roles.  Many of these opportunities require no sport specific knowledge and those that do would be noted on the specific event volunteer registration form.

The nature of our events are very face paced and possible risks can be associated with a specific sport. For this reason, we simply ask that all volunteers be at least 14 years of age or older to volunteer by themselves unless noted. Anyone under the age of 14 we still encourage to volunteer but with a parent or adult.

Some of the various roles can be:

  • Fans in the stands
  • Track Judge / Timer
  • Event Times / Scores recorder
  • Referee or Umpire
  • Announcer for Basketball or Softball Games
  • Skills Competition Assistant
  • Bowling Lane Worker
  • And many more…
