    Volunteer Opportunities for Travel League Parents

    Please sign up for a minimum of six (6) volunteer hours at the Elk River Classic Tournament on Saturday, December 2nd, and Sunday, December 3rd, to meet your Travel League volunteer requirement.   

      All volunteers must be 16 years of age or older.  

    Opportunities to volunteer will be released each day at approximately 6pm on Monday, November 13th, Tuesday, November 14th, Wednesday, November 15th, and Thursday, November 16th. 

    We are continually monitoring the volunteer needs at our three tournament venues to ensure that this year's tournament is the best one yet for all of our families.  More opportunities will be made available if any family wants to volunteer but all shifts are claimed.  Travel League Head Coach families are exempt from the 6-hour volunteer requirement.  Travel League Head Coaches also have 6 volunteer hour credits to distribute to their Assistant Coach, Team Manager, or to split between the two (contact your child's Head Coach or Kyle Torfin for more information).
