Volunteer Opportunity: U.S. Synchronized Skating Championships


Volunteer at the 2018 U.S. Synchronized Skating Championships in Portland

Portland is set to host the 2018 U.S. Synchronized Skating Championships February 22-24 at Veterans Memorial Coliseum. This exciting event will bring more than 1,600 figure skaters from 89 of the nation's top synchronized skating teams, and serve as the U.S. selection event for the 2018 World Synchronized Skating Championships. This will be the first time that Portland has hosted the U.S. Synchronized Skating Championships, after hosting the 2016 Midwestern and Pacific Coast Synchronized Skating Sectional Championships and the 2005 U.S. Figure Skating Championships.

We are still recruiting volunteers to help facilitate practice sessions at the three practice ice venues that these visiting skaters will be utilizing during their stay here in Portland. Skating experience is not needed for these roles. Volunteers will receive a Columbia fleece vest, commemorative event pin, and a free ticket to attend any day of official competition at Veterans Memorial Coliseum.
