Volunteer with the Sports Commission


The Sports Commission and its events have benefited from outstanding volunteer support. Tens of thousands of St. Louisans have devoted time and energy to contribute to the success of events like the U.S. Olympic Festival, the NCAA Final Four, NCAA Wrestling Championships and many others. The dedication and enthusiasm exhibited by area volunteers help make St. Louis a premier host region for big-time sporting events.

You can make your mark on America’s best sports city by volunteering to help out at Sports Commission activities and other sporting events taking place throughout the St. Louis community. Several volunteer opportunities are listed below. These do not include the additional NCAA or major championship events that vary from year to year.
