Already Signed Up? Important Information

Hello Volunteers, Thanks for signing up.

Here are a few notes on what to do and what is expected.

For Saturday and Sunday Volunteers,

Parking please arrive early enough to allow for parking and travel time. You have two options for parking first in the park itself, then at the High School and ride the shuttle over, the city charges for parking at both sites.

There is some local street side parking (not recommended) please adhere to all posted signage.  The city also provides a shuttle that travels clockwise around the outside of the park.

When you arrive at the park please check in at the booth main gate near the recreation center at least 15 minutes before the start of your shift.

At the booth you will be provided a T shirt this identifies you as a volunteer to the public, security staff and the directors/ officers of the games. Wearing the shirt identifies you as a part of the organization with that comes certain privileges and expectations.

The person checking you in will confirm the shift and location you are working. You will be part of a team working that location please introduce yourself to your fellow volunteers and security staff.

Working the gates, you are dealing with members of the public who maybe visiting the games for the first time and others who attend annually so please be pleasant, respectful and helpful which I know you will be. We do get some challenges through the day use your resources such as your team, security guard, and radio when needed.
