Our sport requires a 1:1 judge to athlete ratio on the competition field. The competition legitimately cannot happen without YOU. If you are you an athlete, or fitness lover who would like to be right in the action, please consider a role as a volunteer judge. You will be asked to judge an athlete based on their ability to adhere to the standards we set, as well as count their repetitions. Judging will be your primary responsibility, but you may also be asked to fulfill other duties. There will be judge training sessions prior to competition day.
We have a story to tell and we want YOU to capture it. Work as a part of the media team in one of the following areas: video, photo, social media or broadcast team. Previous experience in a media related field is required. The media team volunteers can expect to be on their feet for most of the day, capturing every moment that brings our story to life. Stories of first-time competitors, overcoming adversity and big PR moments!
These incredible humans are nothing short of amazing. Ready at any moment to jump in if needed.
