Volunteer FAQ

What is the event?

It is USA Climbing’s Youth Bouldering Regional Competition. Kids from across Southern California come to compete. It is an on-sight competition which means that competitors will be isolated (in ISO) before they climb and then escorted to a sequence of bouldering problems, where they will earn points dependent on how far they get on the route during their time.


When is the event?

December 8th | 7:15 AM – 5:45 PM

December 9th | 7:15 AM – 2:30 PM


Do I need prior experience to volunteer?

No! We will have a mandatory volunteer meeting about a week before the event, and then a judging meeting on the day of, to go over how to facilitate the competition. Feel free to invite your friends and family! The more volunteers we have, the more smoothly the event will go. 🙂


How old do I have to be to volunteer?

In order to avoid conflicts of interest, we are requiring volunteers to be 18 years or older (since this is a youth competition). However, if you are under the age of 18 and are interested in volunteering, contact Lauren ([email protected]) for potential exceptions.


What would I be doing as a volunteer?

Specific assignments won’t be given until closer to the event day, but the different positions include:

  • ISO Monitors: Supervise the isolation area, call out the time to competitors, and help check climbers in
  • Floaters: Help swap judges, communicate between volunteers, and assist where necessary
  • Runners: Escort competitors to their climbs
  • Judges
  • Clean Up


When is the mandatory volunteer meeting?

We will have two meetings the week before the event, volunteers are required to attend at least one:

  • Sunday, December 2 | 12 PM – 2 PM
  • Thursday, December 6 | 7 PM – 9 PM


Why should I volunteer?

Volunteering offers a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in the climbing community, while also supporting your local youth competitors. In addition to this, volunteers are rewarded with:

  • 3 guest passes for each shift they work (so if a volunteer works the morning and afternoon shifts, they are awarded 6 guest passes per day)
  • A free shirt, coffee, and lunch on competition day
  • A one-time 30% off retail shop transaction
