If you are interested in volunteering please take a look at the dates of our events and volunteer opportunities.
Set-up: This includes moving equipment to the beach from boardwalk or the parking area, setting up the tables, tents, coolers, chairs, etc. Start time 8:00. (Unless other arrangements are made.) Please note that if you choose to move equipment and take part in the set-up, you do not have to stay the rest of the day, unless you choose to. So if you only have time for this portion, we would appreciate the help.
This includes collecting waivers from participants and volunteers or having the participants sign waivers if they did not bring them along. Start time 9:30 (Waiver volunteers may also be requested to sell shirts.)
Sales: Sale of Operation Beachhead shirts. Start time 9:30
Watermen/women: This group will assist the participants getting into and in the water, either using kayaks, adaptive surfboards, floats, boogie boards, etc. Start time 9:30
Catchers: This group will aid at the water’s edge helping the participants when they surf in and either need help turning around to go back out or help getting out of the water. The designated host will then assist to getting them back on the beach. Start time 9:30
This includes taking down the tents and moving the equipment off the beach. If Operation Beachhead uses wetsuits for the participants, they need to be taken back to the storage location and washed down to be ready for the next event. This activity happens after the beach day around 1PM at the beach location. As with the set-up duties, a volunteer can arrive at the designated time and does not need to be present for the entire beach day.
The participants will be
arriving at approximately 10 AM. As in the past, it is essential that we gather
on the beach and be ready for them no later than 9:30 AM. There will be some
instruction before each event. If you are attending an event, please download the waiver for that event, sign it and bring it with you to the event. Waivers for each event location are listed below.
(There will also be waivers available at the event, should you need one.)
