We are an all volunteer organization. We need a good core of tallent to bring our events to life.
 We are always in need of volunteers. Besides some help with the smooth operation of our events, we need help behind the scenes too. We need a variety of talent to help run the derby year round. We are always in need of grant writers, research and data collection/analysis, web masters, registrations, marketing, media relations, social media engineer, and more! If you have administrative talent, resources, and time, please email us and let us know what you would like to help us with.
If you are not the administrative type and love the hands on work with some wiener dog race action, we could definitely use your help at our events. We always need a little support for various positions in and around the derby. If you would like to help, please click the link below to be in contact with our volunteer coordinator today!
