Volunteers sought for Canadian Open tourney

Softball competition in South Surrey, Cloverdale

Organizers of the Scotiabank Canadian Open Fastpitch International Championship are seeking volunteers to lend a hand at next month’s week-long event. 

The tournament, which runs from July 9-17, has volunteer opportunities in a variety of capacities, including gates, parking, hospitality, set-up and take-down, field crew and more. Volunteers with previous experience as scorekeepers and game-production staff are also needed.

Additionally, any young softball players born between 1997 and ’99 who are members of Softball BC can sign up to be an official Canadian Open bat girl, where they’ll get to work closely with one of the tournament’s elite teams.

More than 80 teams are expected to take part in next month’s event, including some of the top national programs from across the world.

Volunteers must commit to a minimum of 20 hours throughout the tournament. 

Those interested in volunteering can fill out a volunteer application form online at www.canadianopenfastpitch.com/volunteerapp11.asp
