Volunteers are an important part of the Challenger Sports program. Volunteers are assigned to a team to help with communication, scheduling, pictures and volunteer management within their respective team families. There are several ways to help.

  • Team Parents and coaches help organize the teams.
  • Buddies  keep the flow of the games going.
  • Refreshment volunteers help prepare, organize, serve and clean-up after the games.
  • Event committee members plan, schedule and carryout activities and fundraisers.
  • Challenger Board members oversee the entire program and share in chairing event committees.
