Volunteer / Practice Session Sign-up

Volunteers who work at the trials are also able to sign-up for the practice session on Friday, July 21. You don’t have to be entered in the trials to sign-up for the practice session–you just have to volunteer.

For those not entering the water trial, you can still help. Water trials can’t happen without dedicated volunteers. No experience is necessary for many of the stewarding positions at the water trial. Also, it’s a great way to see the trial up close.
