GMGSO Families,

The volunteer sign-up for our Gold Medal Extravaganza is here!  Please click the link below to see all of the volunteer opportunities that we have available for this fantastic event.  Please remember that this year we are asking that each family do a minimum of 3 volunteer shifts for the season.  Two of the shifts need to be at the Arizona Grand Meet and the other can be at any of our GMGSO events.  


PLEASE BE ADVISED:  If you sign up to work at the session that your gymnast is competing, you will need to stay at your work post.  You will not be able to leave your job to watch your gymnast.  Please refer to the schedule so that your can volunteer at a time that best fits your needs.  Also, this is a sign-up for parents not gymnasts.  Gymnast volunteer sign-ups will be at the gym and Kristin will be giving details to the girls when the time comes. 

We are so blessed to have such a large and supportive parent group at Gold Medal, if each of us can do just a little bit, we can accomplish anything!  Thanks in advance for your support!!

Any questions – please contact Margo Ingram or Shannon Fritz.
