Volunteering is essential for the Hartford Wrestling Club to succeed. We ask that all families of club members volunteer a minimum of 5 hours per season. If you have more than one wrestler in the club, your volunteer requirement is still 5 hours. Once your volunteer hours have been met, you can request that your volunteer fee ($100) be refunded or you can roll the fee over to the next wrestling season. We do not want your fee, we want/need your volunteer hours.
The following are your volunteering options…
Our annual tournament gives the most opportunities for families to fulfill your 5 hours and is the most in-demand for the HWC. Many opportunities… including set up and take down, concessions, morning check-in, distributing awards, first aid station, data entry, etc.
- REGISTRATION NIGHT
Volunteers are needed to assist our Registration Director on the night of registration.
- T-SHIRT DISTRIBUTIONVolunteers are needed to hand out t-shirts to all club members. Usually before and after practices over the course of a few practices.
- SINGLET DISTRIBUTION AND RETURNS
Volunteers are needed to hand out singlets at the beginning of the season. Usually before and after practices over the course of a few practices. Same thing on returning the singlets at the end of the season.
