We are a non-profit organization that presents, promotes and supports community, educational, and local charitable activities in Rosemary Beach and the Walton County Area. The following guidelines recognize some of the critical items that every volunteer shall understand and comply with. Each volunteer will be expected to conduct themselves in such a way as to promote a “family friendly” atmosphere that will promote attendance for many years to come. 

Requirements

  2. The volunteer age minimum is 16 years old and accompanying children are not permitted. We require that all volunteers be 16 years of age or older on the day they are volunteering. A Parent/Guardian must agree to the volunteer waiver for volunteers between the ages of 16 and 18 years of age. 

  3. Volunteers are not allowed to speak to the media on behalf of the event. If you are approached by a member of the media please reply, ‘I am not an official spokesperson of the event’, and direct them to the media phone number on the back of your credential.

When required, you must have visible appropriate and current event issued credentials and/or ID vests and wristbands to be on the premises. Dress appropriately for the weather.

  1. Check the weather and dress appropriately. It is important to prepare for the weather if you are volunteering outside, so bring enough layers/options of clothing to ensure that you will be comfortable for the duration of your scheduled shift.

  2. Arrive on time. Scheduled shift times are unique to each volunteer position.

  3. Please listen carefully to any instructions from the Volunteer Captains and comply with what they ask of you. Volunteer and participant safety is our first priority, so we need you to be prepared and aware of your surroundings at all times.

  4. If you have any questions or need assistance, contact the nearest Volunteer Captain who will be identified when you check in for your shift.

  5. Treat all spectators, volunteers and race participants with courtesy and respect. Any inappropriate conduct relating to race, ethnicity, gender, religion or physical disability is not tolerated. Exhibiting such behavior is grounds for dismissal from one’s volunteer duties.
