The Youth Track & Field program is an annual youth sports offering from Mecklenburg County, serving over 500 participants ages 4 to 18 years old in 2017. Athletes compete in developmentally appropriate disciplines in a recreational setting, to promote a love of athletics!

Volunteers are needed to assist with a wide variety of tasks during each meet, including: event set-up and tear-down; clerking tent (athlete check-in); hipping tent (distributing numbers to athletes, etc.); warm-up areas; starting line; finish line volunteers and timing/finish line runner; and helping with various events that need additional preparation including long-jump and softball throw. We will also need volunteers to: assist the announcer, act as ushers for the athletes and runners for additional support; and to be Hospitality Assistants, keeping hospitality stations stocked with water and refreshments for athletes, officials and volunteers (ability to lift 30+ pounds on and off trailers is required for Hospitality Assistants).

*Volunteers must be at least 12 years old for these events - ANY volunteer under the age of 16 MUST be accompanied by a parent/adult at all times. Please wear comfortable clothing/shoes, and bring a lunch, sunscreen, hat and water bottle - snacks/refreshments will be provided.
