Please email me at jkroll@live.maryville.edu to sign up. Thanks! :-)

Jennifer A Kroll

Here is the information email that I received.

Thank you for volunteering for the St. Louis Metro Area Spring Games! As a reminder, you have volunteered for:

Buddy

7:30am – 4:30pm

Below please find additional notes for the day, please let me know if you have any questions before April 30th!

· The event is being held at:

Rockwood Summit High School

1780 Hawkins Rd.
Fenton, MO 63026

Overflow parking is located at:

Kellison Elementary

1626 Hawkins Rd.

Fenton, MO 63026

· Please arrive on time for your scheduled shift.

· Please dress according to the weather. If rain is in the forecast, the event may be moved indoors at Rockwood Summit. We ask that if the weather is warm to refrain from wearing short shorts as some athletes may not be able to control themselves. We encourage you to wear comfortable shoes.

· There will not be a place to put purses. We ask that you wear clothing with pockets or use backpacks or drawstring bags to put any belongings you may need.

· Upon arrival, please check-in at the assigned table. All volunteer check-in will take place right inside the high school in the Student Commons. You will be provided a shirt that you should wear all day. Your T-shirt will not only identify you as a volunteer it will be your meal ticket! Please dress accordingly to the weather. We ask if the weather is warm to refrain from wearing short shorts as some athletes may not be able to control themselves. We encourage you to wear comfortable shoes and use backpacks or drawstring bags for belongings.

· Please proceed down to the track and locate the coach whose agency is on your card. After you introduce yourself to the coach, he/she will assign an athlete to you for the day.

· After you are assigned to an athlete, you will be with them until the completion of the final event and it is imperative that you stay with them. In an event where you have to leave early, contact the athlete’s coach.

· Follow the instructions from the Head Coach of the agency to which you are assigned. The Coach will give you specifics regarding lunch instructions; medication; departure drop-off; events; bathroom, etc.

· Please wear a watch so you can escort your athlete to the assigned venue in plenty of time as the events run on a strict schedule. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to the scheduled competition time. Also, when you arrive at the venue site, listen for the announcer to call your athlete’s name/number and alert your athlete that his/her turn is coming up soon. The athlete will not be allowed to compete if he/she misses the assigned heat.

· Do not interfere with an event or touch a fallen athlete, as that will automatically disqualify him/her. Also, do not run along the track while the athlete races. Once the athlete is in their heat and about set, you can go down to the finish line to pick them up. You might need to hold items for them (i.e. medals from previous events, Victory Village prizes, jackets, etc.)

· Please do not create a distraction for the athletes; their attention should remain on their event.

· Be sure to visit Victory Village and other special happenings throughout the day. Please do this when there is a break in the athlete’s schedule. It is great time filler.

· If you have any problems with your athlete or events, go to the Information Table (which is near Volunteer Check-in) and ask that your athlete’s head coach be paged.

· First Aid will be available. If you do not know where the location is, visit the info desk or any venue site to ask the person to radio the First Aid personnel.

· Do not take your athlete off school property; take him/her in a car; administer medicine nor help them in the bathroom. You can take an athlete to the restroom if they are capable of going in by themselves. We do not want to put you an awkward position. If an athlete has problems, you need to find the coach first.

· Please do not purchase anything for the athletes. If they want something, they have money to do so.

· Please do not give out your telephone number or email address to the athletes, unless you want future contact from the athlete.

· Smoking, consumption of alcoholic beverages and illegal drugs are not allowed at Special Olympics competitions.

You will serve as a role model for the athletes.

Good sportsmanship, winning and losing gracefully are important to the philosophy of Special Olympics.

Please set a good example for the athletes.

Thank you for Being A Fan!
