BC Rugby needs your help! We are seeking volunteers to help support the 2022 Provincial Regional Championships taking place on July 1-3, 2022 at the UBC’s Gerald McGavin Rugby Centre in Vancouver.
The famous BC Rugby weekend makes its return for the first time since 2019, with the best youth Rugby players in BC suiting up for their respective regional XVs teams for a bumper weekend of action.
With 1000 players expected to participate in boys’ and girls divisions throughout the weekend, it’s important that athletes get the best tournament experience possible. In order to do this, BC Rugby is calling for volunteers to help with setup, tear-down and game-day activities.
HOW TO APPLY
We are looking for volunteers to fill several rolls throughout the Canada Day long weekend, across a variety of shifts. Volunteers must be 19+. These roles include:
- Field Control – Ensuring spectators stay off field and officials have room to complete their roles
- Score Runners – Collecting results from the referee at the end of each game and bringing the results to the tournament control
- Scoreboard Manager – Updating the score of the games as they take place
- Site Assistant – Collecting trash, checking and cleaning facilities as needed
- Team Directional – Directing teams at warm up fields, and to other warmup fields
Each day of the event will be split into three shifts. Volunteers can apply for multiple shifts throughout the weekend. Shift times are as follows:
Friday, July 1: 8:30am-12:30pm, 12:15pm-4:15pm, 3:30pm-7:30pm
Saturday, July 2: 8:30am-12:30pm, 12:15pm-4:15pm, 3:30pm-7:30pm
Sunday, July 3: 8:30am-12:30pm, 12:15pm-4:15pm, 3:30pm-7:30pm
Volunteers will be provided details on their role prior to the event, and be given an orientation on site before beginning their shifts. Each shift will be four hours and volunteers will be provided with snacks and drinks.
BC Rugby requests all volunteers must complete the World Rugby Concussion Management for the General Public Certification and will be required to show certification ahead of their shifts. Note all certifications are only valid for two years, and all certifications must have a date of July 3, 2020 or later.
