The Great Lakes Adaptive Sports Association (GLASA) is hosting the 2017 Adult National Open & Great Lakes Regional Games (ANO GLRG) the weekend of June 8 – 11, 2017 at Lake Forest High School (Thursday/Friday/Saturday) and Loyola Academy (Sunday). This four-day event provides athletes at both the novice and elite level the opportunity to compete at a multi-sport event. Many athletes will compete to qualify for the 2017 World Games and the National Junior Disability Championships! These amazing athletes will have the opportunity to compete in a variety of adaptive sports – Archery, Boccia, Powerlifting, Swimming, and Track & Field.
We are in need of wonderful volunteers in order to provide these athletes with a well-run and memorable event. I am looking for volunteers (age 14+) who are outgoing and have the maturity/self-assuredness to work well with youth and adults with disabilities. All volunteers will receiving training on-site and no previous experience is needed!
There is something for everyone!
I have attached the Volunteer Information Flyer, which lists all the volunteer shifts and descriptions for the event as well as a link to the online volunteer registration on each page. Volunteers will be recruited to fill a variety of needs from logistics, registration, concessions, and sport specific volunteers! Logistics volunteers must be 16 years or older and willing to help with event set up and tear down under the direction of our Logistics Supervisor.
Interested in having a leadership position???
GLASA needs volunteers (age 16+) to take on more responsibility and take charge of certain areas (i.e. volunteer check-in, overseeing field pits, etc.). This will look GREAT on college, grad school and future job applications! Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info!
Please share this volunteer opportunity with your family, friends, and co-workers. This is a great team or group volunteer opportunity! Please feel free to call me if you have any questions or have difficulty signing up.
Opportunities Available: Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Thursday Afternoons, Evenings, Mornings
