Children 10 and under are not eligible to volunteer, however they CAN participate as a unified partner. (A unified partner is someone without a disability playing on the same team as an athlete with a disability. Usually they are on teams that compete at a higher level).

Youth 11-13 are welcome to volunteer for some positions, however, they need to be accompanied by an adult.

Teens 14-17 are eligible to volunteer for select positions.
