Lake Superior Open Volunteer Information

ESS has a volunteer requirement for all families for the tournament we host each year - The Lake Superior Open (LSO). This is our largest and only fundraising event each year. This year, the tournament will take place on June 28-30, 2019.

Parents/Guardians are required to volunteer 6 hours per player for the tournament. The majority of volunteer work happens the weekend of the event. If you are unable to help during that weekend, please communicate with the tournament director PRIOR to the event to see what volunteer options are available prior to the tournament weekend so you can fulfill your requirement.


We are using Sports Engine this year for our Volunteer Requirement. On July 15, 2019, $150 will be withdrawn from your account if you did not complete your required amount of hours. If you complete your required hours of volunteering for the tournament, we will cancel the July 15th payment and you will not be charged. 

$1 will be charged at check out for the volunteer requirement ($1 per player if more than one player is registered at once). This is the only way our system allows it to be set up.
