Dana Hills has one of the most successful XC Programs in the State.  Maintaining this high-performance level year after year would be impossible without the support of parent volunteers.  The main events and activities requiring parent volunteer support are listed below.  For the 2019 season, we will be using SignUp Genius to manage and track volunteer assignments.  

2019 Parent Volunteer Opportunities:

  • Spirit Wear & Distribution

We will need a few parents to help head up the distribution of spirit wear orders, as well as help us manage & organize spirit wear inventory. 

  • 46th Annual Dana Hills Nike Invitational – Saturday, September 28th

This is the Dana Hills XC program’s biggest event of the season and we need every Dana Hills XC family to participate.  The SignUp Genius event for DHI is already posted and you will start receiving emails and reminders to sign up.  In the meantime, sign ups can be found at:

2019 DHI Volunteer Sign Ups

  • End of Season XC Yearbook

This is a large undertaking where we, along with the Coaches, put together season stats (races, times, splits) photos from all the meets, etc. and put together an amazing yearbook to handout to the athletes at the end of season banquet.  

  • End of Season Banquet – December 3rd

The end of season awards banquet is a great chance to reflect on the season and acknowledge the athletes, coaches, and parents that make it all possible.  More details, including volunteer slots to be provided during the season.

  • Individual Meets, Hydration and Nutrition – Throughout the Season

For each meet, we will be looking for a parent volunteer for each class/team level (freshmen, sophomores, JV and Varsity) to be responsible for coordinating hydration and nutrition for their respective team.  This role requires the volunteer to collect the donated items prior to the meet and ensure that they are available at the meet.  SignUp Genius events will be created for each meet with these needed positions and provisions.
