This free event is helps UBC staff and faculty members celebrate the end of the school year, offering them an opportunity to compete or just have fun in a variety of physical and intellectual activities. Learn more about Sports Day here: www.recreation.ubc.ca/sports-day

We need Activity Captains who will help to ensure the teams of 4-6 staff/faculty members understand the rules and how to play each activity. Activity Captains will be in charge of other event volunteers (Sports Day Assistants) to ensure that the activity (which can range from anything from trivia games to bouncy obstacle courses) runs smoothly and participants have a great time. Activity Captains get to be in a leadership role, overseeing the work of others, while also perfecting their event management skills and learning about event planning.

Sports Day Assistants are in charge of helping make the event run smoothly, in roles such as registration or activity helpers. These assistants will learn the background on how large scale professional events run well, how set up and take down of a large event is done efficiently and effectively, and also learn to manage crowds and ensure participants have a great experience.
