Develop professionally as a NIRSA Championship Series staff member

The NIRSA Championship Series Committee has developed the following staff structure to coordinate the efforts of the NIRSA Member volunteers and staff who work together to make NIRSA Championship Series national and regional events possible.

Volunteering is a great career opportunity for any recreation professional or student. The professional development experience that volunteering with the NIRSA Championship Series offers is grounded in learning outcomes and professional development goals consistent with NIRSA’s mission and the NIRSA Championship Series guiding principles.

The tournaments are run by NIRSA professionals, who select volunteer applicants based on their stated interests and qualifications.

Representatives of the host institution serve as the Directors of Operations for each tournament. The NIRSA Championship Series Committee will be seeking volunteers for Director of Officials, Director of Competition, and all tournament staff positions. Please review the following information carefully before applying:
