2019 Big 12 Championship

The Big 12 Rowing Championship will be held on Melton Lake on May 19,2019.  Collegiate teams such as Alabama, Kansas, Kansas State, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, and West Virginia will compete for the Championship.  

Whether you know very little about the sport of rowing or are a passionate follower of the sport, this is your chance to get involved!  You will be joining a team of volunteers who enjoy welcoming crews and spectators to the Oak Ridge-Knoxville metro area and work to provide a wonderful regatta experience so please join us!

Our venue is outdoors, so dress anticipating inclement weather and the likelihood of getting wet.  Wear layered and waterproof clothing and don't forget a hat and sunscreen! Docks may become slippery so wear appropriate footwear.  Do not wear any red clothing while performing jobs near the course. This is because a red flag is used to stop a race.

There are many areas that need your help.  Most of these positions require little or no experience while a few require the seasoned veteran which are noted.  

On the day of the event please check in at the regatta 'volunteer' tent.  We will make sure you get to your volunteer assignment.  All volunteer times are estimates: the volunteer job may possibly run longer or shorter than the posted time (weather delays are common).  Please be understanding.  Also, please remember to check out upon completion of your volunteer assignment.

Have fun and thanks for volunteering!  We look forward to seeing you at the regatta!
