BC Seniors Games needs volunteers

Games will take place in Langley from Sept. 9 to 13. There are 4,000 participants expected.

The BC Seniors Games is looking for volunteers for the Sept. 9-13 Games in Langley.

Not only do the Langleys have quality sporting venues to welcome the close to 4,000 BC Seniors Games athletes in September, the communities have thousands of volunteers who have incredible skills and experiences to draw on.

And the Games Organizing Committee is confident that these amazing volunteers will step forward to ensure that a quality three days of sport is presented to our visitors.

“We are in need of between 1,500 and 1,800 volunteers,” says President Milt Kruger, “Opportunities exist for helping with any of the 25 sports in addition to the support areas.”

Currently there is an urgent need for volunteer Sport Chairs for Table Tennis, Whist, Cribbage and Carpet Bowling.  These volunteers will be responsible for coordinating the schedule of competition and overseeing the venue for the week of competition.

The Promotions Directorate is actively seeking volunteers with an interest in photography as well as those with interests in website and social media updating.

As the schedule for the BC Seniors Games is Sept. 9-13, there may be an opportunity for local teams to volunteer together prior to their own competition schedules becoming too intense.

“Local athletes and teams are a great source for officials, help setting up for competitions or equipment management,” explains Vice-President Michael Jackstien.  “Similarly, because the Games will take place early in the month, it’s hoped that students looking for volunteer hours will consider registering for a shift or two of experience.”

If you think that you’d like to be a part of the Langley 2014 BC Seniors Games as a volunteer, registering is easy.

In person:           101-20560 Fraser Highway, Langley, from Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
