If you would like to volunteer your time to help at races, talk to your coaches or program director and they will hook you up with a mentor in the area you would like to try out. All the clubs have people in all the areas. Try as many areas as you like: Gate Judge, Start Area, Finish Area, Timing, Race Office. Some do need special training, but lots don't. If you like the ones with no special training then you can move on to get the training needed to do more exciting jobs.
