Volunteers needed for Special Olympics tourney

by Jeremy Walsh

The Amador Valley High School Athletic Boosters Club seeks volunteers for next weekend's Special Olympics East Bay Regional Basketball Tournament in Pleasanton.

The event is set to take place March 8 and 9 at Amador Valley High and Pleasanton and Harvest Park middle schools. The boosters are looking specifically for people to assist with a range of tasks on March 8, as March 9 volunteer positions are almost all filled.

This marks the club's 11th straight year hosting the basketball tournament.

Volunteers can be adults or students of high school age. Younger school children can also help, as long as they are accompanied by an adult or older sibling.

Available positions include assisting with the skills competition (8:30 a.m. to noon), lunch (11 a.m. to 2 p.m.) and team escorts (roughly 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.).

Interested people should email club representatives at avboosters@comcast.net and provide their name, address, phone number, group affiliation (if applicable), age and preferred volunteer position.
