Volunteers who can work a four-hour shift minimum will receive an event t-shirt, certificate and invitation to attend a kick-off event. Participating as a volunteer is a wonderful community service opportunity.

All game volunteers will be required to attend a Volunteer Orientation. The volunteer orientation will be held at two different times to accommodate the working force, dates and times to be announced. All volunteers will receive specific assignments from the Sport Coordinator associated with the sport. Sport Coordinators will require that volunteers make themselves available for training and/or practices before the Games begin.

To volunteer, visit online volunteer registration. Deadline to sign up is Saturday, June 17.
