Sports Competitions - Volunteering at a competition is a rewarding and inspirational experience. The responsibility of volunteers working in a sport-related role at a venue is to assist in providing a safe, fair and consistent competition for all athletes. Once you volunteer, you’ll want to do it again and again. Volunteer positions include timers, awards, scorekeepers, runners, results, staging, set-up, tear– down, lunch preparation, and much more. Most positions are a 4 hour time commitment. Sign up below!
Be a Fan - Nothing drives an athlete more than that roar of the crowd in anticipation greatness. No matter if it’s at the Summer Olympics or at a regional high school track meeting – cheering fans is what inspires athletes to excel and give their very best. Nothing puts a bigger smile on our athletes’ faces than to be supported by the fans in the stands.
You fans are what sports are all about: excitement, passion and sharing joy with others. That’s why we invite you to be a fan of our Games. Come out and bring a friend - witness how our athletes will run faster, throw further and jump higher because of YOU!
