Our Fly-Off is only successful with your help!

No experience is necessary and you do not need a STEM background to volunteer.  We will train you when you arrive one hour prior to the fly-off.

Adults 21+ who are not current coaches of a registered team are appreciated!

No experience (STEM or otherwise) is necessary.  We will get you up to speed when you arrive.  You just need to be an adult, age 21 or older, who does not have an affiliation with any of our competing teams.

When do I show up?
We ask our volunteers to arrive 90 minutes prior to the Fly-Off so that we can familiarize you with the event.
