    With 150 days to go until the 2017 World Rowing Championships, those wishing to volunteer at the event may now register online through TRS (The Registration System).

    Potential volunteers can select their desired position(s), days and shifts they would like to work. Volunteers will be needed for: Parking and transportation, timing, ticketing, language services, competition, media center, information center, entertainment area, airport greeters, and more.

    “We are seeking 2,000 volunteers for this marquee regatta,” said Meredith Scerba, the executive director of the 2017 World Rowing Championships. “These lucky individuals will get to witness history in front of their eyes, while serving as ambassadors for our event and the community.”

    Registration will conclude at the end of June. In August and September, volunteers will be required to attend one of three training sessions. Additional details will be provided at a later date.
