The “Ultimate” Volunteering Gig

The Victoria Ultimate Players Society was granted the bid by Ultimate Canada for this year’s Canadian Ultimate Championships. This event sees youth and adult ultimate frisbee players from across the country compete for the National title.

Games will be played at SMU, Lansdowne and Topaz Park August 16 – 18th and Royal Athletic Park Aug 19th for the finals. The games are played during the day and the majority of volunteers will be needed between 8:00 am and 6:00 pm (in 3-5 hour shifts).

There is a lot to do! Some examples are going to the airport to greet arriving teams, being a city liaison, helping to set up fields, being a gopher at the fields (anything from running around with a walkie-talkie to helping the operations manager identify where a scorekeeper is needed). There will be appropriate training, a volunteer handbook and of course some perks! There’s a shirt and a volunteer pack with some free stuff as well as a couple of volunteer only events.

Student volunteers can be paired with a friend and, if requested in advance, all students will receive a certificate of recognition for the community volunteer hours they completed.

The website: www.cuc2012.ca and here is the  Facebook page.

There is an initial web registration to be added to our potential volunteer list. For all minors, there will be special youth activities and parental consent is required.
