Volunteers play a vital role in the success of the MotoAmerica Championship of Alabama. We will be enlisting the help of approximately 75 volunteers to work on various committees and we want to ensure that each individual has a once in a lifetime experience! All volunteers are required to work a minimum of 2 shifts over the course of the weekend. Shifts are approximately 5-6 hours long, but can vary depending on the committee. Volunteers are welcome to work more than 2 shifts and can indicate desired number of shifts during registration.

COMMITTEES

Each volunteer is given the opportunity to select up to 3 committee preferences during registration. Volunteers will be notified of their committee assignment after we receive and process the application. Positions are granted on a first come, first served basis. Once a committee is full, it will no longer be available during registration.
