CORPUS CHRISTI - Do you want to be in the middle of the action as top athletes from throughout Texas compete for GOLD right here in Corpus Christi? We are looking for volunteers who will play an important role in making our Olympic-style sporting event a BIG success.
ABOUT THE GAMES: Over 8,000 top athletes are expected to come to Corpus Christi to compete in the Texas Amateur Athletic Federation (TAAF) 2013 Summer Games of Texas, presented by CITGO. This event will be hosted July 25-28, 2013. The state will be watching as the best athletes ignite the flame within. Amateur, recreational, and young Olympic hopeful athletes will converge in Corpus Christi to compete in 12 sports hosted at various venues throughout the city. SPORTS CATEGORIES are: baseball, boxing, fencing, golf, Judo, skateboarding, softball, swimming, table tennis, tennis, track & field, and triathlon. CITGO is the presenting sponsor for this event during 2012 and 2013. Major media partners are KIII-TV3, Corpus Christi Caller-Times, and Tejas Broadcasting. Hurricane Alley Waterpark and the Corpus Christ Convention & Visitors Bureau have also teamed up again as contributing sponsors. For more information about the games, go to www.taaf.com.
Many volunteers are needed for us to host this event so that it will be a great experience for all our participants and visitors. We could use your help throughout the four-day weekend along with the days leading up to it. We will rely on our Games of Texas volunteers to help us tackle the many components of our events, from the preparation to the post-event tasks-from passing out water, assist event coordinators as needed, and more. Volunteers are needed to help with the 12 sporting events (listed above) and additional events.
Not only are our volunteer opportunities rewarding, but they offer a great opportunity to meet new people, help us be ambassadors for our city and have fun in the process.
