Volunteers – Register

At the association state tournament all teams are required to supply a volunteer for a two hour shift.  Volunteers are a critical part of making the tournament the best it can be for the students of NorCal Odyssey of the Mind.

Due to the current conditions and requirements of the school districts across NorCal and local, county, state and national agencies our volunteers will need to meet the current guidelines in place for the event.  Currently:

  • All adults need to be vaccinated.
  • Will need to show proof of vaccination.
  • Complete and adhere to  Health Screening Form,
  • Wear Masks at all time indoors.
