This month is a perfect example of how you can give back with the Greater Cleveland Sports Commission.

Cleveland Ohio will be the Wrestling capital of the world as the community prepares to host NCAA Championships for Division III (March 9 – 10) and Division I (March 15 – 17).

Roles include those who would ensure that the student athletes, coaches, officials and fans have a tremendous experience in Cleveland.

At the Division III Championships there is a large need for ushers and greeter volunteers on both Friday and Saturday. The fun thing about working an event is that the Sports Commission will do their best to ensure that you are able to view wrestling competition throughout your shift.

There's also an opportunity to help at the Division I Championships as a General Fan Fest Assistants or Wayfinder. This means that you would be providing an important part of guest experience in Cleveland and welcome visitors to the area.
