Volunteer Nation: 5 Events Where You Can Lend a Hand This Weekend

Our sport is run on volunteer power, and if you’re wanting to get out and help this weekend we’ve got a full listing of currently available positions at events around the country. Don’t forget, you can accumulate points and win prizes by racking up volunteer hours — not to mention, it’s a great educational opportunity and a chance to take in the sport from another angle.
