Volunteer at Bridge II Sports
Volunteers are the girders that support ‘The Bridge’!
Without you it would be impossible to provide quality programs and events creating positive impact for
people with physical disabilities in North Carolina.
Your energy, strength, talents and time make Bridge II Sports what it is!
Bridge II Sports has several opportunities to get involved. Taking on leadership roles in coaching, assisting with weekly sport practices, making our events shine or sharing your unique talents ‘behind the scenes’ to help promote the mission- there is something for everyone!
Tier 1 Coach
Tier 1 Coaches are dedicated to leadership roles in coaching and work with Bridge II Sports program staff to manage a sport. BIIS has had the honor of having recreation therapists, adapted PE teachers, wheelchair/adapted sport athletes and coaches from the able-bodied world serve as Tier 1 Volunteers. These positions require a background check, interview and trainings with Bridge II Sports. Tier 1 Volunteers are extremely valuable in providing their expertise and sharing their strengths with our athletes. If you have a passion for adapted sports this is the place for you! Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Can you commit to volunteering once a week? During our various sports seasons is it is a HUGE help to have volunteers that consistently assist with a sport. Weekly volunteers don’t need to be adapted sport expert but must have a willingness to jump in, help with equipment, interact appropriately with our athletes and be ready for fun! Weekly volunteers will always assist under the supervision of BIIS staff and will never be left alone with BIIS athletes.
If your skills are better suited off the court you can volunteer weekly at the BIIS office helping make the magic happen!
It takes over 300 volunteers to make Valor Games SE a success…and that is just one of our events! Event Volunteers join us for a full day or half day playing a critical role in all aspects of making our events an incredible experience for all involved. These are great opportunities for corporate/community/college groups to learn about the world of disability sport and make a difference while they are at it. Some of our events do require a volunteer training prior to the event.
Do you have a skill that you could share with us? Specialized Volunteers bring their talents in an array of areas to further the mission of BIIS– computer/tech, photography/video, construction, equipment maintenance, …you name it…we could use it!
Beginning in 2018, Bridge II Sports will host quarterly volunteer trainings for new Tier 1, Weekly and Specialized Volunteers.
Bridge II Sports reserves the right to require background checks if we feel it is necessary for all types of volunteers.
