Volunteers Needed

Would you like to join in the fun of volunteering to help Suncoast Orienteering?

Become a Friend of Suncoast Orienteering and when you sign up and help at an event your entry for that event or another event will be free!

What type of volunteering can a Friend do?

See the following list of activities.

Here’s a list of activities on how you can help at the various events:

  • Help set out the control markers in advance of the event.
  • Be a forerunner to re-check to be sure all the controls are in place on the event day.
  • Act as a greeter giving out information to newcomers.
  • Staff the Public Registration Table.
  • Help at the Timing Table.
  • Help sell merchandise if there is anything to sell at the event.
  • Assist in collecting the control markers at the end of the event.

But wait! There’s more …

With more experience, volunteers can become event directors and course setters. That is REALLY neat!

Volunteers can pitch in to make a map of a new orienteering venue or update an existing one. That is the “top of the volunteering pyramid”!
