Be a Volunteer – Be a Fan!
Our games would not be made possible without the support of our day-of-event volunteers. We accept volunteers ages 12 and older (12 – 15 must have adult supervision, 16+ may volunteer independently). Any age is welcome to volunteer to cheer as a Fan in the Stands. Volunteer registration closes at MIDNIGHT on Wednesday, 5/31 but you can still come and register to be a FAN the day of the event.
