Volunteers

Volunteers play an integral part in the success of this event. Volunteers are needed to assist with jobs such as scorekeeping, prepping awards, handing out lunches, and more. No sports knowledge is necessary; training will be provided on site. Please direct any questions to volunteer@somo.org. 

Before volunteering at one of our events, take the time to watch a quick video where athletes, coaches, Unified Partners and volunteers will tell you what you need to know before you show up on event day!
