General Volunteers

We will be requiring many volunteers that we consider our “General” volunteers.  These would include anyone who is NOT a judge or a referee.

If that is YOU, that’s fantastic!

The following chart outlines the various roles for which we need volunteers.  Please read through them and then register for as many roles in which you are interested.  We will notify you when you have been assigned to a role and follow up with further details.

If you have any questions about being a volunteer at this event please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Arti Javeri.
