Volunteer Registration will open a few months prior to the event.
Sports Enthusiasts must be at least 15 years of age to volunteer to volunteer. Sports Enthusiasts under the age of 18 MUST be accompanied by an adult. Remember that children under the eligible age are not allowed to volunteer or accompany you. You will be told on the event day that your services cannot be utilized if you have children younger than the eligible age with you. This is for the safety of your child and everyone else involved.
Sports Enthusiasts will receive confirmation of the shifts for which they have been scheduled. Confirmations will be mailed approximately 30 days prior to the event or emailed after that time. Confirmation will include further information on parking, directions, and other useful information.
Sports Enthusiast shifts and activities will be assigned on a first come, first serve basis. Although every effort will be made to accommodate your selection, the scheduling office reserves the right to schedule volunteers based on event needs, which includes placing volunteers on a waiting list. You will receive a confirmation packet closer to the event. Please refrain from requesting schedule changes until you receive your confirmation kit. Schedules are subject to change.
