Holding a successful competition requires decidated volunteers. For this competition, each round of an event has room for 2-6 scramblers, 12 judges, and 2-4 runners.

No experience is necessary for judging and running – we can teach you how to do these tasks if you are interested. This is a great opportunity for family members of competitors to be involved without competing.

If you are a high school student looking to obtain volunteer hours as a graduation requirement, you must volunteer for the entire competition in order for us to sign your volunter hour sheets.
