Volunteers Shape the Regatta

Volunteering for the San Diego Crew Classic is a rewarding experience in which volunteers get to actively be a part of the West Coast’s largest and longest-running regatta. We rely on hundreds of members of the community to create the best competitive and spectating opportunities for our athletes and their supporters.

We’re in need of volunteers who are available before, during and after the regatta. No experience is necessary for you to volunteer with us! However you must be at least 14 years old to volunteer. You’ll need a valid e-mail address and access to the internet to register. Volunteers should note that this is an outdoor event, and almost all of our positions involve at least some time exposed to the sun (or rain!). Volunteers should bring sunscreen and appropriate clothing and footwear.
