COLORADO SPRINGS, COLORADO – The NWBA has launched the Volunteer Registration process for the 2018 National Wheelchair Basketball Tournament presented by ABC Medical. The 2018 NWBT is set for the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville, Kentucky, from April 12-15. This is a great opportunity for members to gain experience in working with the largest wheelchair basketball tournament in the world.
The NWBA is recruiting for the following positions to volunteer for throughout the tournament: Shot Clock; Timekeeper; Scorekeeper; Event Setup; Event Breakdown; Water Service; Registration/Will Call Assistant; Statistician; Store Assistant; 50/50 Raffle Volunteer; and Greeters/Unloaders.
Previous experience is preferred if you want to act as a volunteer table official serving in the roles of Timekeeper, Scorekeeper or Shot Clock Operator. The only other restrictions for volunteer table officials is that you must be 18 years of age or older. No other restrictions exist for any other positions.
“For the first time, the NWBA is pleased to provide volunteer opportunities to NWBA members. Much of the success of the NWBT presented by ABC Medical can be correlated to the overwhelming support of our volunteers in Louisville,” said Anthony Bartkowski, NWBA Executive Director. “The Louisville Organizing Committee chairs of Jill Farmer and BJ Levis have continued to increase support from the Louisville community for our event. We look for their continued success in showcasing the 70th NWBT in April.”
The volunteer positions and their time slots are being offered on a first come, first serve basis. Please make sure to sign up as soon as possible if there is a specific position and time slot that you want.
