Volunteering for Winter Sports
We will need a significant number of adult volunteers to make the Winter Sports program happen. Volunteers will need to complete the background check and fingerprint process. If you volunteered last year, you do not need to get fingerprinted again, but you do need to complete the background check paperwork. Please contact the CAES office for this paperwork.
