LAXtravaganza! 2018 Needs You!
MAYLA LAXtravaganza! will be held at Arrowhead High School on May 19 & 20 from 8 am to 8 pm. There will be 82 teams participating and playing 164 lacrosse games over the two-day event. This event has been a success in the past years and we hope that 2018 will be nothing less!
Of course, this cannot be done without volunteers (um,... lots!) and that is where MAYLA is hoping you can help!
Below are listed the areas where we would need help with brief descriptions. The number of people we need are PER ONE HOUR SHIFTS, not total, unless specified.
**All volunteers will need to check in 15 minutes prior to the start of their shift at the MAYLA Headquarters Tent located in the Vendor Village.
Set-Up/Clean-Up: Friday, Sat & Sunday
These volunteers will help with whatever needs to be secured overnight and make sure everything is set for the next day of lacrosse. Friday shift is ~ 5:00-8:00, Sat/Sun are pre- and post-event.
Parking Lot Greeters/Monitors
As a parking lot greeter/monitor, you will hand out programs and make sure everyone is directed to the appropriate field and help people park in an organized manner.
Fastest Shot Station
We need 2 people to be working at this station, one to collect money, send the kids through the line, and record the top three times, and another person to hold the radar gun. Kids (even adults!) love to see how fast they shoot!
Raffle & Silent Auction
For the raffle, we will need 4 people/hour to walk around from field to field with selling tickets for our 50/50 raffle. Drawings are twice daily.
For the silent auction, we need 2 people to monitor the display tables on Saturday and to assist with the check-out and pick-up of prizes on Sunday.
We are also accepting more items/service/gift certificates for raffle/silent auction. Please contact me if you can donate or have a lead on a potential donor/sponsor.
We will need one volunteer per hour to help where needed: e.g. refill the 5-gal water coolers, help deliver coolers to the playing fields, empty trash cans.
Score Keepers/Penalty Timers
These volunteers will be from the designated Home Team per the Master Schedule. Please contact your team parent to sign up for these shifts. There will be 2 persons filling the roles of score keeper and penalty timer at each field for every game who will be in charge of keeping score, keeping time for the halves following a centralized start horn, timing penalties on the field, reporting any injuries to the head table, ushering teams on and off the fields, and giving a two minute warning to teams and spectators before the games start. You will also be checking the water coolers and letting the head table know if they need refilling.
Please contact your team parent to sign up for these shifts. There will be one from each team as per league rules for all games.
MAYLA would like 8 canopies for use at scorer’s tables. Drop off Friday, 5:00 - 8:00 pm or Saturday am before 7:30 am. Pick-up on Sunday in the evening, no later than 8:30 pm. Clearly mark your name on the tent. We greatly appreciate your assistance!
Kids like to shoot! Three backstops are required to enclose the Fastest Shot Contest goal. Drop off Friday night for set-up is preferred, but will accept at 7:00 am on Saturday, and pick-up on Sunday between 7:30 - 8:30 pm. Mark clearly with your name.
