Will you help us making 2016 World Rowing Senior, Under 23 and Junior Championships a success?

Volunteer Manual:

It is hard to imagine organising World Rowing events without the help of hundreds of volunteers. Volunteers are the key to success. Would you like to help us and be right in the middle of this adventure? Join us in Rotterdam from the 20th of August until the 28th of August 2016 .

We offer our volunteers a magnificent experience at the rowing event unmatched in the world where fun and professionality go hand in hand. This tournament is bigger than any World Rowing Championship event ever organized.

This is why we are looking for volunteers who are available from the 3rd of August until the 30th of August 2016. You don’t have to be available during the whole period. We will divide the tasks into many sub teams during the days (including the building up and breaking down).

For certain tasks professionals will be hired, for example for security, traffic, catering, and cleaning. Volunteers can help us on other tasks though.

A few examples:

  • Welcoming spectators and accreditation
  • Hosts at the grandstands
  • Accompanying the teams at the boat storage
  • Accompanying the teams
  • Drivers for the mini buses and cars
  • Hosts at info stands
  • Assistance at the starting procedure
  • Media hosts

Would you like to coordinate or help us on more administrative tasks? This is also possible. Whichever task you perform, you will be an indispensable part of the organization of this event and we welcome any help with gratitude.

The 2016 World Rowing Championships will be held at the Willem-Alexanderbaan in Zevenhuizen near Rotterdam. Of course we will provide you with a nice clothing set, lunches and for example free parking. There will be a non-stop shuttle service to and from the metro and train station of Rotterdam Alexander.

There are many tasks during the event but which size will fit you most?

Soon you will find out information about volunteering on this website. Join us as a volunteer. if you are interested in helping us please contact us now. We will contact you with detailed information about the different tasks and planning of dates. After that you can decide.
