We understand that each of our families has unique situations and structures. We also understand that your time is limited and that pieces of it vanish when you are working, making meals, and running your children around to clubs, sports, and experiences. As parents, we are all very busy caring for our families.
Our coaches and staff spend countless hours away from their families, donating their time to give your child a quality wrestling experience. Their love of the sport and desire to develop and positively motivate your child is evident in their service. But they cannot do it alone. We need a couple of hours of your time and support to run our program!
While volunteering in the sport of wrestling can seem intimidating, we assure you it is not hard and that when you get involved you enjoy the sport more. By participating, you learn about wrestling and get to know other families.
Our home matches usually begin around noon and last about 4-5 hours.
To give you a preview of how you can volunteer at our home meets:
- We typically run 4 mats. At each mat, we have 3 people sitting at a table. One person keeps score, one person keeps time, and one person throws a rolled-up towel onto the mat when time has expired. We rotate volunteers every hour and a half.
- We run a concession stand. We ask for 4 or 5 volunteers to sell food. We rotate volunteers every hour and a half.
- ***We can assure you that you will never miss your child's match. We talk with each other to ensure this does not happen and relieve you several matches in advance of your child's match.***
Other volunteering opportunities include setting up mats and tables before the matches, and photographing matches.
