The 2021 Dynamic Discs Open tournament offers volunteer opportunities allowing another way for people to be part of the event.
*PLEASE NOTE: If you are registering to play, although we appreciate your willingness to volunteer, we would prefer you not signup as a volunteer. We want those who are not playing to have the opportunity to participate in the DDO experience.
On-Course Volunteers: Course Support
One of the benefits of volunteering on the course is a front-row seat to the tournament! Course tasks include spotting, crowd control, scoreboard carriers, and playing tee-off songs. All course support tasks involve fair to considerable amounts of walking and being outdoors for an extended period of time.
Want to volunteer as a spotter but do not know the rules and protocols of disc golf? We are offering two Spotter Clinics prior to the event. The first clinic will be at Hammond Park on Thursday, April 8th at 5PM. The second clinic will be at Jones West on Saturday, April 10th at 9AM. We also have a short video you can watch about spotting and it can be found below.
Course Prep: Involves a considerable amount of walking. Tasks could include but are not limited to mulching around tee pads, putting up feather flags and signs around the course, assisting with flagging OB lines to ensure the course is ready for tournament play.

The shifts include assisting with tasks such as Player Check-In, Player Meeting Set-Up and Teardown, Block Party Set-Up and Teardown, and Bonfire Set-Up. The tasks for the shifts could include light lifting, some lifting of boxes, a fair amount of walking, and delivering lunches.
